ACC Helmet Stickers: Week 7

Here are the ACC's top performers for Week 7:

Boston College running back Montel Harris: He set two school records in the Eagles' 52-20 rout of NC State. Harris had 264 yards rushing and five touchdowns. It was an impressive accomplishment considering the Wolfpack entered that game holding opponents to just 62.8 rushing yards per game. On the second series, Harris lined up in the Wildcat formation and took off for 70 yards. He scored on the next play for a 7-0 lead and continued to run at will from that point on.

Clemson running back C.J. Spiller: He wanted to prove he's more than just a return threat, and Spiller did that with touchdown runs of 66 and 14 yards in the Tigers' 38-3 win over Wake Forest. He finished with nine carries for 106 yards. His 66-yard touchdown was the fifth scoring play of at least 63 yards this season for Spiller and pushed the ACC's all-purpose career yardage leader past 6,000 yards -- a first in league history.

Virginia defensive end Nate Collins: His 32-yard interception return in the third quarter gave Virginia the lead for good and helped seal a 20-9 win over the Terps and kept the Cavaliers undefeated in conference play. It was his first career interception and the first by a Virginia lineman since Nick Jenkins did it in 2008.

Georgia Tech's defense: After giving up an average of 37.5 points and 513 yards over the past two games, Georgia Tech held the Hokies to 334 yard of total offense and, with the exception of a 66-yard touchdown run, kept running back Ryan Williams in check most of the night. The Hokies were scoreless in the first quarter, and defensive coordinator Dave Wommack did a great job of getting his players ready for a much improved Hokies' offense.

Miami coach Randy Shannon: With a 5-1 record, Miami is off to its best start since 2005. He has the Hurricanes ranked in the top 10. And they haven't lost focus in the past two weeks despite playing against lesser opponents. Oh, and he's the one who hired Mark Whipple as offensive coordinator. It's time to give this man a sticker -- and a contract extension.
