RECEIVER – Chris Givens, Wake Forest, WR, Jr., 6-0, 195, Wylie, Tx. Givens caught seven passes for 132 yards and one touchdown in Wake Forest’s 27-19 win over Boston College on Saturday. Givens caught a 47-yard scoring pass from Tanner Price early in the third quarter. Givens also caught a 36-yard pass from flanker Michael Campanaro that set up Wake Forest’s final field goal. Givens made the catch despite triple coverage and a defensive pass interference call against BC. Givens’ 498 yards receiving through four games is the most-ever by a Wake Forest receiver through four games.
OFFENSIVE LINEMAN – Laken Tomlinson, Duke, G, Fr., 6-3, 310, Chicago, Ill. Tomlinson was a key member of Duke’s offensive line that yielded zero sacks against an FIU defense that entered the game ranked fourth nationally in sacks per game (3.75). The offensive line successfully protected Renfree and opened holes for Juwan Thompson’s two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

LINEBACKER – Tig Willard, Clemson, LB, Jr., 6-2, 220, Loris, S.C. Willard had nine tackles, including seven first hits and a tackle for loss to key Clemson’s second line of defense in the Tigers 23-3 win at Virginia Tech. Willard was a big reason Clemson held Virginia Tech to just three points and just 258 yards of total offense. Clemson held Virginia Tech without a touchdown at home for the first time since 1995.

ROOKIE – Giovani Bernard, North Carolina, TB, Fr., 5-10, 205, Davie, Fla. Redshirt freshman tailback Giovani Bernard rushed for 146 yards on a career-high 24 carries and scored a touchdown in Carolina's 35-20 win over ECU. He became the first UNC player to rush for 100 yards in three straight games since Natrone Means in 1992. Bernard had 113 of his 146 yards in the first half as Carolina built a 28-3 halftime lead. Bernard now has seven rushing touchdowns, which equals the total of last year's leading rusher Johnny White.
SPECIALIST – Justin Moore, Georgia Tech, PK, So., 5-10, 171, Atlanta, Ga. Moore made all six PATs, but it was his 40-yard field goal with 5:38 remaining that helped seal Georgia Tech’s 45-35 win over NC State Saturday.
