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?

CFB: (5) Georgia at (8) Clemson

Will the winner of this game be a major player in the national title conversation?
