    UVa tight end Jake McGee makes a 10-yard touchdown reception in the back of the end zone with six seconds left to help UVa defeat Miami 41-40 at Scott Stadium.
  • Florida State's Dustin Hopkins broke the NCAA career marks for points by kicking and field goals. Hopkins made five field goals of 50 yards or longer this year.
  • North Carolina's Jonathan Cooper became the first Outland Trophy finalist in school history.
  • Wake Forest receiver Michael Campanaro's 16 catches vs. Boston College.
  • Tanner Price drives the Deacons 93 yards in the closing minutes to beat North Carolina, 28-27.
  • Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins vs. Auburn in the season opener. His diving catch in the end zone put Clemson up 23-19 en route to a 26-19 win.
  • Hopkins scored three touchdowns in just 7:49 of the second period in Clemson’s win over Ball State. It was quite a statistical accomplishment, as it was the shortest time period to get three touchdowns for a Clemson player in school history.
  • Lamarcus Joyner’s 90-yard kickoff return against Clemson. The Tigers were up 31-21 in the third period when Joyner changed the momentum with his kickoff return. Two plays later, EJ Manuel found Rashad Greene for a 9-yard score and it was 31-28.
  • Georgia Tech broke the school record for points in a conference game by scoring 68 at UNC and turned the season around with the win.
  • Duke Johnson's debut at Boston College. He quickly made a name for himself with two long touchdown runs in the season opener, rushing for 135 yards to lead Miami to a 41-32 win over the Eagles.
  • Miami's overtime win at Georgia Tech. Mike James ran untouched for a 25-yard touchdown run, giving the Hurricanes a wild 42-36 win.
  • Sean Renfree's 99-yard touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder against Miami matched an NCAA record.
  • Tobais Palmer vs Clemson. He set an ACC record with 496 all-purpose yards. He had 277 yards on kickoff returns and caught seven passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns in the loss.

See? Too many. Now it's time to cast your vote. We took the liberty of narrowing it down to five of the most memorable moments from 2012. Which one wins?
