PLAYERS TO WATCH:FSU
QB Xavier Lee -- He looked like a different quarterback after getting his first start. All of the potential of Lee came to the surface. Now it will be a matter of trying to perform at a consistently high level.
WR Greg Carr -- Even with two costly drops last week, Carr has caught 17 career TD passes in his 52 catches and is averaging 19.4 yards per grab.
LB Buster Davis -- Regained his lead as the ACC's top tackler with nine stops against Maryland
PLAYERS TO WATCH:Virginia
DE Chris Long -- Though he was credited with only three tackles in the win over North Carolina State, two were sacks, and he drew constant double-teams throughout the game. For the season, Long has 43 tackles (fifth best on the team) with nine for negative yardage. He also has been credited with five quarterback hurries, a pass broken up, and a forced fumble.
TB Jason Snelling -- Not a burner, but a reliable runner who can get the Cavaliers the tough yardage. He powered his way to the final 35 yards on two carries for the decisive score against N.C. State. Snelling gains about 79 yards a game rushing to rank fourth in the league.
WR Kevin Ogletree -- After not catching a pass as a freshman in 2005, he leads the Cavaliers in receiving with 40 catches, which matches Georgia Tech's celebrated Calvin Johnson for the ACC lead. His 481 yards receiving ranks second to Johnson's 627, and his four touchdown grabs are tied for second.
