GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today that the league's official website, theACC.com, will highlight the Class of 2012 ACC Football Legends through a special week-long series of features.

The week of legends series begins Monday, November 12 with Miami's Ted Hendricks and Wake Forest's Ed Stetz.
