Both Miami and Boston College were picked to finish fifth in their respective ACC divisions by a poll of media members.

Atop the depth chart at quarterback for Miami is junior Stephen Morris. After starting four games as a freshman, Morris did not play much as a sophomore for Miami. He has thrown for 1,523 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his career.
