  • The three wins over nonconference top-10 opponents tied for the most in ACC history.
  • ACC teams defeated two top-10 teams in bowl games for the first time ever.
  • The ACC had five wins over ranked nonconference opponents in the 2013-14 season, tied for the most in the nation.
  • Eleven ACC teams finished with a winning record in 2013, the most by any league since 1932.
  • It is the first time in the league’s 61-year history that three ACC teams ended the regular season with at least 10 wins.
  • For the first time since 1997 (No. 3 Florida State, No. 6 North Carolina), the ACC had two teams ranked in the top 8 of the final AP poll (No. 1 Florida State, No. 8 Clemson).
  • The ACC is the second conference to win both the national championship and another BCS game in the same season (fifth time overall). The league is 3-0 in BCS games over the past two years.
  • ACC teams played in the most-watched game of the season (VIZIO BCS National Championship) and the most-watched non-BCS bowl game in ESPN history (Chick-fil-A Bowl).
  • The ACC had six consensus All-Americans in 2013, matching its all-time best set originally in 1997 and matched in 1999.
