    ACC Names Players Of The Week

    Xavier Lee becomes the first Seminole this season to take home an ACC Player of the Week honor when he was named co-offensive back of the week on Monday. The redshirt junior QB came off the bench and in the second half rallied the Seminoles to a 21-14 win over No. 22 Alabama. The win was FSU's first over a ranked opponent since September 4, 2006


    Joining Lee as Co-Offensive Player of the Week is Maryland QB Chris Turner. Turner showed impressive poise after entering the game for an injured Jordan Steffy late in the first half against No. 10 Rutgers on Saturday. Turner completed 14 of 20 pass attempts for 149 yards, directing four scoring drives and leading the Terrapins back from an 11 point deficit at the half. The 34-24 win gave Maryland its first win over a top 10 team since 2004.

    Against Duke on Saturday, Calais Campbell had one of his best games of the season as the Hurricane defense held the Blue Devils to just 61 rushing yards and 14 points on the day. For the game, Campbell totaled eight tackles, including 2.5 sacks, 3.5 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. He now places seventh in the conference in sacks, fourth in tackles for loss, and is tied for third in fumbles forced.
