The 2014 ACF Nationals was held between April 12 and 13 at Columbia University.

The field of 34 teams was divided into three brackets of 12, 11, and 11 for the prelims, and then split into a top 12, middle 12, and bottom 10 for playoff crossover games.

At the end of Sunday's playoff rounds, Virginia went undefeated and cleared the field with an 11-0 record in the playoffs (and a 19-0 record overall), becoming the first team to achieve either of those goals since 2007 Chicago seven years prior. A three-way tie among the teams with 9-2 playoff records was seeded by PPG and broken in a series of two games which Yale won to secure second place and the Undergraduate title.
