On Monday, the All-ACC college Football teams were revealed. There are few surprises on the teams, with the most challenging decision coming at the most important decision in football: quarterback, where Louisville Cardinals quarterback Lamar Jackson and Clemson Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson have been battling for supremacy all season.

Jackson vs. Watson

Jackson burst on to the scene early this season in Louisville routs, doing it all with his arm and his legs. He was the most dynamic presence on the football field and wrapped up the Heisman Trophy before the season was even a month old. He has, however, struggled in recent losses to the Houston Cougars and rival Kentucky Wildcats, turning the ball over at an alarming rate.

Watson has been steadily working to live up to his incredible sophomore season since he struggled out of the gate in 2016. He became a forgotten name with Jackson playing so well, but Watson has turned up the heat lately, dominating last week's rivalry game against the South Carolina Gamecocks to the tune of 347 passing yards and six touchdowns in just three quarters of action.

These players did face off in one of the most important ACC games of the season on October 1. Watson wasn't at his best, tossing three interceptions in addition to five touchdowns. Jackson had just a single passing touchdown and interception, and both were effective running the ball. Clemson won the game, though, which would validate Watson earning top marks in the All-ACC polls.

Notable All-ACC facts

While Watson didn't make the All-ACC first team, two of his most dynamic weapons, wide receiver Mike Williams and tight end Jordan Leggett, did. Pittsburgh running back James Connor, who battled back from a cancer diagnosis, also made the first team. Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware received the most votes of any player.

Clemson had the most players make the All-ACC first team with nine. Five teams - NC State, Boston College, Duke, Miami, and Georgia Tech -- failed to place a player on the first team; Georgia Tech and Duke didn't have any players on the second team either.
