Boston College Football Preseason: Eagles Picked 5th In Preseason Poll

The Boston College Eagles turned up in the fifth spot of the ACC preseason poll on Wednesday. Voted on by the ACC media, they picked the Eagles to top only Maryland in the Atlantic Division.

Florida State was selected to win the Atlantic Division as well as the conference. Voters opted for Virginia Tech to win the Coastal Division.

The Eagles finished fifth in the Atlantic Division last year, after being picked to finish fourth in the preseason poll. The polls are notorious for going off last season's standings, so the Eagles should not be written off just yet.

The rest of the standings in the poll looked like this:

Atlantic Division
1. Florida State Seminoles
2. Clemson Tigers
3. N.C. State Wolfpack
4. Wake Forest Demon Deacons
5. Boston College Eagles
6. Maryland Terrapins

Coastal Division
1. Virginia Tech Hokies
2. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
3. North Carolina Tar Heels
4. Virginia Cavaliers
5. Miami Hurricanes
6. Duke Blue Devils
