List Rules Vote up the ACC schools with the historically best football team.

The best football teams in the ACC could come down to a coin flip between the Clemson Tigers and the Florida State Seminoles. But while those two teams have the most titles in Atlantic Coast Conference history, their dominance is not written in stone.

From 2007-2010, the Virginia Tech Hokies reeled off a string of three ACC titles in four years, meaning the race for top football team in the ACC is more complex than it might first seem. Even the Duke Blue Devils, famously among the best college basketball programs, had a run of success on the gridiron.

While the list below includes only teams that are currently part of the ACC, the stats include all championships and titles from the history of the program. So vote below and make your voice heard, then head over and check out the best basketball teams in the ACC.
