Here's a look at the ACC's top performers from Week 5:
UNC quarterback Cam Sexton -- He stepped up in the absence of injured starter T.J. Yates and led the Tar Heels to a 28-24 come-from-behind win over Miami. Sexton's 14-yard touchdown pass with 46 seconds left helped erase a 14-point deficit. He completed 11 of 19 passes for 242 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns.
Maryland's defense -- It woke up in the second half against Clemson and helped the Terps to a 20-17 win in Death Valley. After racking up 260 yards of total offense in the first half, Clemson was held to 112 in the second. The Tigers had 14 first downs in the first half, and five in the second. After combining for 193 rushing yards in the first half, James Davis and C.J. Spiller combined for 31 in the second.
Virginia Tech placekicker Dustin Keys -- The Hokies relied on Keys for four field goals at Nebraska in their 35-30 win over the Cornhuskers. Three of his kicks came in the second quarter to give Tech an 18-10 lead.
Florida State running back Antone Smith -- After a quiet night against Wake Forest, Smith woke up and rushed for 154 yards and three touchdowns in a 39-21 win over previously undefeated Colorado. It was the Seminoles' first win against an FBS opponent this season.
BC running back Montel Harris -- The true freshman ran for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' 42-0 romp of Rhode Island, further asserting himself as the most productive option on offense.
