Players of Week 6

As week 7 down the Road To Tampa Bay approaches, let's look back at the highlight players from week 6...

OFFENSIVE BACK—Chris Crane, Boston College, QB, 6-4, 239, Sr., Mechanicsburg, Pa.
Crane accounted for all 5 of BC’s touchdowns when he completed 34-of-51 passes for a career-best 428 yards and 2 touchdowns and also led the Eagles in rushing with 11 caries for 42 yards and 3 touchdowns.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN—Rodney Hudson, Florida State, T, 6-2, 290, So., Mobile, Ala.
Hudson helped lead the FSU ground game to 281 rushing yards. Hudson led a young offensive line that paved the way for FSU QB Christian Ponder to rush for 144 yards, the second-most rushing yards by a Seminole QB in the history of the program. Not only did he open holes for Smith on his four TD runs and for Ponder on his career rushing day, he was a key factor in limiting the Hurricanes to zero sacks.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN—Clint Sintim, Virginia, OLB, 6-3, 254, Sr., Woodbridge, Va.
Sintim had another disruptive performance as the Cavaliers posted a shutout of Maryland. He tied his season high with 7 tackles, including 6 solo stops. Sintim sacked Maryland QB Chris Turner for an 11- yard loss on a key 3rd-down play from midfield in the third quarter to force a Maryland punt. He now has 5 sacks this season and leads the ACC. Sintim also had a pass deflection.

DEFENSIVE BACK—Tony Carter, Florida State, DB, 5-9, 166, Sr., Jacksonville, Fla.
Carter recorded multiple interceptions for the second week in a row. Carter picked off Miami’s Robert Marve in the first quarter, which led to the Seminoles’ first TD of the game and then again in the fourth quarter on a deep pass on 4th-and-6 to thwart a potential Miami TD. He also had four solo tackles in the game.

SPECIALIST—Bruce Carter, North Carolina, OLB, 6-3, 230, So., Havelock, N.C.
Sophomore linebacker Bruce Carter set an ACC single-game record by blocking three punts – all in the second quarter - in the win over No. 24 Connecticut. His third block was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown by Matt Merletti. Carter also recorded seven tackles, including two tackles for losses and a pass deflection. Carter also tied a school record for blocked punts in a season with four to match Bracey Walker’s 1993 total. Carter may have done something no other player in NCAA history has accomplished - blocking four consecutive punts, including the last one at Miami and UConn’s first three. The NCAA does not keep records on consecutive blocked kicks.

ROOKIE— Jaybo Shaw, Georgia Tech, QB, 6-0, 190, Fr., Flowery Branch, Ga.
Shaw, had more yards passing (230) than any Tech quarterback in their first career start. Shaw, who ran for one touchdown and passed for another, was 9-of-13 passing for 230 yards, including an 88-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas -- the third-longest pass play in Tech history.
