North Carolina wide receiver Hakeem Nicks -- His four touchdowns sparked an offense that had been missing Brandon Tate and led the Tar Heels to a 45-24 win over Boston College. He finished with eight catches for 139 yards and three touchdowns, and he also ran for another score.
Virginia tailback Cedric Peerman -- He rushed for 118 yards, including the game-winning touchdown over a ranked Georgia Tech team that was playing its homecoming game. He also caught five passes for 55 yards in the 24-17 upset.
Duke's defense -- The Blue Devils had four sacks and three turnovers, including Chris Rwabukamba's interception at the Duke 1-yard line that sealed the win over Vanderbilt with 38 seconds remaining. They beat Vanderbilt on the road despite 250 yards of total offense.
Florida State receiver Greg Carr -- His height and his hands were the difference in the Seminoles' 30-20 win over Virginia Tech. The 6-foot-6 receiver had three catches for 100 yards, including two impressive grabs on long pass plays that led to a pair of third-quarter touchdowns.
Maryland running back Da'Rel Scott -- He had his best game since the season opener, and when he was injured in the fourth, his leadership and words to backup Davin Meggett kept the momentum going in the rainy win over NC State. Scott finished with 23 carries for 163 yards and a touchdown.
