Here are your top five performers for Week 13:
Virginia Tech running back David Wilson: He ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns in the 38-0 win over Virginia. It was his 10th 100-yard game of the season, tying former teammate Ryan Williams for the ACC single-season record. It was only his second multi-touchdown game this season (Appalachian State). He now has 1,595 yards on the season, putting him just 61 yards away from a new school record for rushing yards in a season.
NC State: It was the biggest comeback in school history. The whole team gets a helmet sticker for this one. NC State trailed Maryland 41-14 with six minutes left in the third quarter before scoring six straight times in what was the second-biggest comeback ACC history. NC State scored 35 points in the fourth quarter for 56-41 victory.
BC linebacker Luke Kuechly He ran an interception back for a touchdown in the Eagles' 24-17 win over Miami on Friday night and became the school's all-time leading tackler. If it was Kuechly's final performance in a BC uniform, he made it a memorable one. His 45-yard interception return with 14:48 left in the game helped seal the win for the Eagles. He became the school's all-time leading tackler with his 525th career tackle in the first half.
North Carolina tailback Giovani Bernard: He had his seventh 100-yard rushing game of the season with 165 yards on 30 carries, both season highs, in the 37-21 win over rival Duke. His seven 100-yard rushing games are a UNC freshman single-season record, breaking the previous mark of six set in 1977 by Amos Lawrence. Bernard now has 1,222 rushing yards this season, the most ever by a UNC freshman. He now ranks sixth on the school’s single-season rushing chart. His 13 rushing scores equaled the fifth-highest single-season total in school history, tied with Natrone Means in 1992. He had 222 all-purpose yards against Duke, 165 rushing and 57 receiving.
Florida State's defense: The Noles forced rival Florida into four turnovers, and Terrance Parks had a 29-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. The turnovers were the difference in the 21-7 win, as Florida quarterback John Brantley was intercepted on three of Florida's first five possessions.
