Clemson, FSU remain undefeated

Freshman phenom Jameis Winston is good, really good. Winston had career-highs with 393 yards and five touchdowns in No. 8 Florida State's 63-0 win over No. 25 Maryland. It was FSU's largest margin of victory over a top-25 team in school history. The Seminoles were equally as impressive on defense, holding the Terps to just 234 total yards. But for as good as Winston is playing right now, Clemson senior Tajh Boyd might be playing even better. Boyd had 363 passing yards and four touchdowns at halftime against Syracuse and finished the game with 455 yards and five scores. Both have undefeated records through five weeks of play. But which is the better team? Which QB has impressed you the most?

Who stood out in college football?

We've still got one big game on the college football Week 1 slate -- No. 11 Florida State heads to new ACC rival Pittsburgh on Monday night -- but the vast majority of business is done. And it featured far more than Johnny Manziel's antics. Clemson made a statement by beating Georgia. The FCS similarly stood out, beating seven FBS opponents. A pair of Heisman-eyeing quarterbacks showed this could be quite a race. Who won the weekend?

Marqise Lee returned to USC practice Wednesday, prompting a sigh of relief from the injury-riddled Trojans. Lee is college football's near-consensus top receiver. Can anyone challenge the likely top 10 pick in 2013 for that title? How do the rest of the best stack up?
