FSU, UM each place 2 on preseason all-ACC team

Florida State linebacker Dekoda Watson and guard Rodney Hudson joined Miami kicker Matt Bosher and tackle Jason Fox on the preseason All-ACC team, annnounced today by the league.

Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer, who is seeking to become the league's first two-time Player of the Year since 1992-93, led all candidates with 41 votes cast by the league's media. Dwyer averaged 107 rushing yards per game last season in the Yellow Jackets' triple-option spread offense.
