The Florida State Seminoles blitzed through the ACC last year with an undefeated record after knocking off the Duke Blue Devils in the ACC Championship Game, so could a rematch be in order for the 2014 season? The ACC power rankings will tell that story.

Duke was arguably a bigger story in the ACC last season than the national champion Seminoles after head coach David Cutcliffe lead the Blue Devils to a 10-4 record and the Coastal division title. Winning 10 games at Duke was nothing short of miraculous and that’s why Cutcliffe was up for many Coach of the Year awards.

The ACC underwent a makeover this offseason with the departure of the Maryland Terrapins who left for the Big Ten and welcomed the Louisville Cardinals to the Atlantic division as the conference gets that much stronger with a team that lost only once last year.

However, the million dollar question for this year’s ACC season goes back to the defending champions.

With a couple new head coaches and a plethora of new quarterbacks starting for the first time, can any team catch up to Jameis Winston and Florida State?

Without further ado, here are my preseason ACC power rankings for the conference.
