ACC Football Looking For Even More Respect

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - The Atlantic Coast Conference owns a few prized possessions that once were property of the Southeastern Conference.

Among them: A national championship trophy, a Heisman Trophy, and a measure of respect.

That's mostly because of Florida State's big 2013 season, and now it's up to the ACC to continue the momentum.

Heisman winner Jameis Winston says being the national champs is "important to me because people do need to respect the ACC more."

The Seminoles are the league's standard-bearing program after they captured the last national title of the BCS era seven months ago behind Winston and a big-play defense.

Now the challenge for the league is to produce another team worthy of challenging Florida State.
