For all you passionate fans, you big-time stats guys, you BTSG's. Here are some notes, nuggets and tidbits of all things College Football.  Impress your friends it's time to kickoff!

FLORIDA STATE

The big game of the week turned out to be a big blowout.  The freshman out-performed the senior as FSU defeated Clemson, 51-14.  Jameis Winston threw for 444 yards and three touchdown passes and added a touchdown run of his own in the rout.  Since 2000, his 444 yards was the fifth highest among ACC quarterbacks against a ranked opponent.  What is strange is that four of the top five highest marks came against Clemson.  Also the top two were by a Seminole (well, actually the same Seminole).  Here are those top five:

  • Chris Weinke (Florida State): 2000 vs. Clemson - 521 yards
  • Chris Weinke (Florida State): 2000 vs. Miami (Florida) - 496 yards
  • Mike Glennon (North Carolina State): 2012 vs. Clemson - 493 yards
  • George Godsey (Georgia Tech): 2000 vs. Clemson - 454 yards
  • Jameis Winston (Florida State): 2013 vs. Clemson - 444 yards

GEORGIA TECH

The Ramblin’ Wreck of Georgia Tech ended their three-game losing streak with a big-time shutout victory of conference foe Syracuse.  The Yellow Jackets have always had a good offense under Paul Johnson, but in this game their defense showed up as well.  Tech gave up 83 points in the last two games combined, but against the Orange they gave up zero.  It was the fifth shutout for Georgia Tech since the 2000 season and the second this season. Here are those five games:

  • 2000 vs. Virginia
  • 2006 vs. North Carolina
  • 2008 vs. Duke
  • 2013 vs. Elon
  • 2013 vs. Syracuse

WAKE FOREST

Michael Campanaro may have set the Wake Forest reception record this past week in Wake Forest’s win over Maryland, but it was quarterback Tanner Price that did something that has been done just once in the 2000s by an ACC player.  The senior had a passing and rushing touchdown, but also added the crazy stat of a receiving touchdown.  Campanaro connected from four yards to Price for the touchdown.  The other player that did it in the conference since 2000 was Clemson’s C.J. Spiller.  Here is breakdown on both incredible feats:

  • 2009 C.J. Spiller vs. North Carolina State: 17-yard pass, 16-yard run, 34-yard reception
  • 2013 Tanner Price vs. Maryland: 4-yard run, 4-yard reception, 10-yard pass

DUKE

Duke trailed 22-0 late in the first half and then decided it was time to play ball.  The Blue Devils scored 35 unanswered points for the 35-22 win over Virginia.  The number 22 was also the number of first downs registered by Duke.  They had 11 first downs by run and 11 first downs by the pass.  In the game they were 4-for-16 in third-down conversions, but they also had four fourth-down conversions.  It was the third time since 2000 they had four fourth-down conversions in a game.  Here are those three times:

  • 2013 vs. Virginia: 4-for-4
  • 2011 vs. Wake Forest: 4-for-5
  • 2011 vs. Stanford: 4-for-6
