1.) Tajh Boyd, Clemson – Last Week: 2
Boyd claims the top spot for his stellar performance over the past few weeks. Against Georgia Tech, he flamed them for 397 yards and two touchdowns through the air. He also had one rushing score with his 15 carries for 63 yards.
2.) Bryn Renner, North Carolina – Last Week: 1
Renner drops a spot due to Boyd dominance. His numbers in a win against VT were less than stellar – 17-of-30 for 194 yards, 1 touchdown and no interceptions.
3.) Mike Glennon, North Carolina State – Last Week: 4
Glennon moves up a spot after outperforming EJ Manuel in a head-to-head battle. Glennon threw 55 times for 259 yards, 2 touchdowns and one interception. He appears to be hitting his stride and is improving every week.
4.) E.J. Manuel, Florida State – Last Week: 3
Manuel falls to four because of a loss to N.C. State and a slightly poor performance. He was 17-of-29 for 218 yards with a TD and a pick to boot. Part of that was because he was sacked 4 times and knocked down even more.
5.) Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech – Last week: 8
Thomas may have lost the game against UNC, but he is getting better all the time. This week’s feat? 26-of-49 for 354 yards and 2 TDs (1 INT), plus 7 rushes for 20 yards and 1 TD (4 rushing TDs in the last 5 games)
6.) Stephen Morris, Miami -Last Week: 5
Morris leads the ACC in total passing yards, so he could easily be higher on this list. I just can’t do it after he was completely ineffective against Notre Dame. 18-of-35 for 201 yards and no TDs? No thanks.
7.) Chase Rettig, Boston College – Last Week: 6
A loss against Army usually doesn’t boost you up a spot, but in this case it does. Rettig was sacked 5 times, but still managed 234 yards and a TD without throwing an interception.
8.) Anthony Boone, Duke – Last Week: N/A
Boone is a newcomer on this list, as he filled in for the injured Sean Renfree. I should let him keep that spot, since he may be around to stay after last week’s performance against Virginia. The numbers? 4 TDs, no INTs and 7 rushes for 41 yards. Not shabby.
9.) Perry Hills, Maryland – Last Week: 10
Hills remains on the list simply because everyone else has been so bad. Hills finished with 191 yards on 14-of-25 passing with 1 TD and 1 INT. Nothing he did inspired much confidence, though.
10.) Tanner Price, Wake Forest – Last Week: Last One Out
Price gets back on the list, but barely. He was downright awful against Maryland Saturday, completing only 34% of his passes for 170 yards. He did have 2 TDs and no picks, but that wasn’t enough for a win against the QB above him.
