    Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech

    Welcome to the league Thomas! Stepping in for Tyrod Taylor who graduated this past spring, Thomas takes over the Virginia Tech offense and doesn't miss a beat! Thomas torched the Tennessee defense in the season opener to the tune of 329 yards on 22-31 passing, throwing 3 touchdowns to lead his team to the 24-14 home win. If Thomas can continue this stellar play all year watch out ACC!

    (Honorable Mention: QB EJ Manuel Florida State: 20-26, 333 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT)

    Mustafa Greene, NC State

    This sophomore sure looks like he's starting the season on the right foot! In his team's 27-21 opening win week against Pitt, Greene was the catalyst for the NC State offense rushing 23 times for 120 yards and a touchdown. If NC State is going to be successful this year, look for Greene to be a mainstay on POTW for many weeks to come!

    (Honorable Mention: HB Spencer Ware, LSU. 14 Carries, 111 yards, 1 TD)


    Reuben Randle, LSU

    In his team's rather comfortable 35-14 win over Colorado Randle stole the show. Randle finished the day with 7 catches for 104 yards and 2 touchdowns. In a week where many wide receivers stood out, Randle just edges it here thanks to his 2 touchdown performance.

    Honorable Mentions:

    (1) Jarrett Boykin -Virginia Tech: 4 catches, 139 yards, 1 TD
    (2) Beau Reliford - Florida State: 8 catches, 109 yards, 1 TD

    DeVonte Holloman SS, South Carolina

    This guy is just a bad dude. 6'2'', 229 yards this junior out of Rock Hill made his case this week to be the defensive heartbeat of this Gamecock team. In their 56-20 win over ECU Holloman did it all. He ended the day with 10 solo tackles, 3 sacks, and an interception showing off his ability to make plays in the opponent's backfield while also showing that he's got the ability to end drives with his coverage. I doubt Holloman will have many days like these, so he should savor these type of "special" weeks.
