Offensive Back

Wake Forest junior quarterback Cory Randolph was 16-for-21 passing for 344 yards
and two touchdowns, while carrying the ball 16 times for 107 yards and a
touchdown. Both passing and rushing totals were career-highs for Randolph. The
Lake City, Fla., native became the first Wake Forest player to ever throw for
300+ yards and rush for 100+ yards in the same game.



Offensive Lineman

Virginia senior guard Elton Brown turned in his highest grade in two years
versus North Carolina. The Hampton, Va., senior recorded eight knockdown blocks
and for the second straight week, helped the Cavalier line to no quarterback
sacks or pressures. Virginia rushed for 299 yards, its highest single-game total
in six years, while the 549 yards of total offense are the most in five years.




Defensive Lineman

Clemson senior inside linebacker Leroy Hill had 14 tackles, including ten first
hits and four assists in Clemson’s loss to Georgia Tech. Hill tallied four
tackles for loss, including two quarterback sacks for a total of 27 yards. The
Haddock, Ga., native was Clemson’s highest rated player in the coaches’ film
grade on the defensive side of the ball.



Defensive Back

Miami senior Antrel Rolle recorded six tackles, including three tackles for loss
in the Hurricanes’ overtime victory over Florida State. In addition, the
cornerback from Homestead, Fla., added one sack. Rolle had three tackles behind
the line of scrimmage for a loss of 31 yards and one sack for a loss of 11
yards.



Specialist

Virginia specialist Marquis Weeks returned a kickoff for 100 yards in the
second-half of Virginia’s win over North Carolina. In the process, he tied the
all-time NCAA record. It also marked the second time in his career that he
returned a kick 100 yards for a touchdown. The senior from Berwyn, Pa., now
shares the school record for most career kickoff returns for a touchdown with
two. Overall, he returned three kickoffs for 132 yards, while the team’s 238
return yards broke the school record of 228 set in 1951 against Washington &
Lee.



Rookie

Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught three touchdown passes,
including two in the final two minutes to lift Georgia Tech to a 28-24 win at
Clemson. With Tech trailing 24-14, the Tyrone, Ga., native hauled in two passes
from QB Reggie Ball, the first from eight yards out with 1:50 left and then the
game-winner from 11 yards out with just 11 seconds remaining. He became one of
just six Tech players (and the only freshman) to catch three or more touchdown
passes in a game.
