- 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.
