Which team has the most returning starters in the ACC?

The ACC has only two top-25 teams in Athlon’s projected final 125 rankings, but the conference should make a run at having 10 teams make a postseason appearance.

It’s not the biggest indicator when predicting success, but returning starters are an interesting trend to look at before the season starts.

And it’s interesting to note that four teams in the Coastal Division have 13 returning starters, while Georgia Tech – the division’s ACC title representative last year – has a conference-best 16 starters back for 2013.
