Here is a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from Week 5 in college football:


The Good


#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).

The Bad

#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.

The Ugly

#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.
