TB Antone Smith -- He leads team in rushing and averaging 5.4 yards per carry, which is why it's a mystery he hasn't toted the ball more often.
QB Drew Weatherford -- He's third among ACC sophomores in career passing yardage with 4,822.
LB Lawrence Timmons -- He leads the ACC in tackles for loss (13.5) and ranks seventh nationally in that category.
TB Brandon West -- He replaced Mark Bonds as the Broncos' main ball carrier Nov. 10 against Central Michigan and rushed 22 times for 117 yards. Bonds had eight carries for 33 yards. West had 96 yards in the first half.
QB Ryan Cubit -- The senior must bounce back after a subpar performance in the rain against Central Michigan. Cubit fumbled four times, losing one. He completed only 12 of 23 passes for 59 yards with one interception.
