The ACC was one of three conferences with five nominees, including the PAC-12 Conference and the Mountain West Conference.  Only the Southeastern Conference (9) had more selected to the 2013 Watch List.

The Rimington Award uses four All-America teams to select its winner.  The American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), the Walter Camp Foundation and The Sporting News.  The winner will be honored at the Rimington Trophy Presentation banquet at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln, Nebraska on January 11, 2014.”
