Louisville QB, 7 Clemson players picked to all-ACC 1st team

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Atlantic Division champion Clemson placed seven players on the all-Atlantic Coast Conference first team.

The league on Monday announced its all-conference teams as determined by a vote of 48 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Among the Tigers selected were receiver Mike Williams, tight end Jordan Leggett and three offensive linemen — but not quarterback Deshaun Watson, a second-team choice.

Louisville’s Lamar Jackson was the first-team quarterback, with Dalvin Cook of Florida State and James Conner of Pittsburgh the two running backs.

Coastal Division winner Virginia Tech had just one first-team selection: defensive tackle Woody Baron.

The No. 3 Tigers face No. 19 Virginia Tech in the ACC title game Saturday night in Orlando, Florida.
