Here is a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from Week 5 in college football:
#22 Wake Forest 27- Boston College 24: Wake Forest QB Jamie Newman passed for 243 yards, 2 TDs, and an INT and rushed for 102 yards in leading the Demon Deacons past B.C. Wake ran their record to 5-0 on the season and sit atop the ACC Atlantic Division with Clemson. Newman is the ACC leader in passing yards (1521), pass completions (117), passing touchdowns (14), and passer rating (169.6).
#1 Clemson 21-North Carolina 20: Clemson was held scoreless in the 1st quarter. RB Travis Etienne was held to under 100 yards rushing. UNC had 2 rushing touchdowns and QB Sam Howell passed for 144 yards and 2 TDs. Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence passed for 206 yards and a touchdown. Tar Heels coach Mack Brown decided to go for the win instead of kicking the extra-point to tie to send the game into overtime. UNC went for the 2-point conversion and failed and that was the difference in the ball game. As a result of the close win to an unranked team, Clemson fell to #2 in the latest AP Poll.
#12 Penn State 59-Maryland 0: Nittany Lions QB Sean Clifford passed for 398 yards and 3 TDs and 1 INT and Penn State racked up 622 yards of offense in the demolishing of Maryland. The Terrapins were held to 128 total yards, 10 first downs, and suffered 3 turnovers. The Penn State defense got 4 sacks and 8 tackles for loss.
