Here are the ACC's top five performers for this week:
FSU quarterback Christian Ponder: He threw for a career-high 395 yards and three touchdowns to help Florida State overcome an 18-point deficit and beat North Carolina 30-27 on Thursday night. Ponder's 98-yard touchdown pass to Rod Owens tied the school record for longest pass play in school history, and Florida State outscored UNC 24-3 over the game's final 22 minutes. Ponder completed his final 16 attempts of the game.
Georgia Tech A-back Anthony Allen: He finished with 103 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries, and his 20-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter put the Jackets up 27-9 to put the game out of reach. On one play, he broke four tackles and proved his toughness on each run.
Duke quarterback Thaddeus Lewis: For the third straight game, Lewis racked up over 300 passing yards, and he led the Blue Devils to a 17-13 win over Maryland and their first back-to-back wins over conference opponents since 1994. He finished with 371 yards and two touchdowns.
Clemson running back C.J. Spiller: He finished with 81 yards rushing, 104 yards receiving, including a 56-yard touchdown, and a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. It was the third kickoff return for a touchdown this season for Spiller, an ACC single-season record. He finished with a school-record 310 all-purpose yards.
Clemson quarterback Kyle Parker: His 26-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Ford in overtime led the Tigers to a 40-37 upset road win over No. 10 Miami. He completed 25 of 37 passes for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
