Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M had the week off to prepare for Ole Miss. Though the toughest part of Manziel’s season, his matchup with Alabama, is behind him, he still has plenty of chances to make an impact in the Heisman race with strong performances against schools like upcoming Auburn and Mississippi State, not to mention a showcase meeting with LSU as the season winds down in late November.
Four hundred and fifty-five yards will jump out at you on a stat sheet and a box score. That’s what strikes you first when you look at Clemson’s easy win over Syracuse from Saturday. Clemson certainly didn’t need the five touchdowns Body contributed to the win, but it was sure to fun to watch Boyd pick apart the new-to-the-ACC Orange defense in his time in the game before coach Dabo Swinney took his star out.
Playing in the newly formed American Athletic Conference for the first time Saturday, Teddy Bridgewater and Louisville had little trouble w...
BEST OF MAXIM
Before the college football season started the newly named Florida State starting quarterback, Jameis Winston, perked a few ears up when he made a crack at Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel by saying that he would not catch the 'Manziel Disease.'
Look out Famous Jameis because you have it.
Winston was refferring to Johnny Football...

College football rankings: Top 25, week 6
September has yielded to October. The air is getting a little crisper, the tailgates a little rowdier, and the stakes rise with each passing week. We are starting...
It took just 38 seconds for Tajh Boyd and the explosive Clemson offense to jump on the board inside the Carrier Dome Saturday. The Tigers tamed the Orange 49 – 14 in SU’s inaugural ACC game thanks to Boyd’s masterful performance. They didn’t hesitate to score quickly and efficiently as they turned in three of their touchdown drives in less than a minute. Clemson took a...
Jameis Winston is having himself a day. The Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback has helped the Seminoles build a 49-0 lead on Maryland, throwing for five touchdowns in the process. But one stuck out way above the rest.
Late in the third quarter, Winston eluded pressure from Maryland’s defensive line, rolled out right and threw an absolute strike to wideout Nick O’Leary...
Eighth-ranked Florida State stayed undefeated in Atlantic Coast Conference play with a 63-0 victory over No. 25 Maryland on Saturday.
The Seminoles (5-0, 3-0) rode the arm of quarterback Jameis Winston.
Winston completed 23-of-32 passes for 393 yards and five touchdowns. He's now thrown for 1,441 yards, 17 touchdowns with two interceptions and a 73.3 completion percentage....
Tajh Boyd kept his Heisman Trophy aspirations intact, throwing for 455 yards and five touchdowns in three quarters of work, and No. 3 Clemson beat Syracuse 49-14 on Saturday to spoil the Orange's Atlantic Coast Conference debut.
Boyd, who matched his school record in TD passes, hit Adam Humphries with scoring passes of 60 and 42 yards in the first quarter to help stake the Tigers...
Syracuse defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough smiled a nervous smile. Just the thought of preparing to face Tajh Boyd can have that effect.
At least Bullough has had a bye week to help prepare for Clemson's star quarterback and the No. 3 Tigers (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who visit the Carrier Dome on Saturday.
''He challenges everybody,'' Bullough...
The University of Maryland (4-1) lays a Goose Egg against Florida State (5-0). This was a humiliating defeat (0-63) against a far superior team. Jameis Winston had an incredible afternoon tossing for 393 yards with 5 TDs. So far for the year, the Freshman has thrown 17 TDs with only 2 Ints.

1. AJ McCarron (Alabama)
McCarron and Bama faced winless Georgia St. in an easy win but even against air AJ’s numbers would’ve been great. McCarron of course had no turnovers and was 15 of 16 with 4 touchdowns. Alabama takes on Kentucky in Lexington this Saturday night.
2. Tahj Boyd (Clemson)
Boyd went to the Carrier Dome and went 20 for 27 for 455 yards, 5 tds and 2 ints. Clemson...
A fifth very good football game couldn't be enough.
We couldn't allow Jameis Winston to shred No. 25 Maryland for 393 yards and five TDs on 23-of-32 passing, leading No. 8 Florida State to a 63-0 win, and slip into the rest of this Tallahassee afternoon free from our hungry hands of conjecture.
So, naturally, before three quarters were through, the projecting began.
October’s first college football weekend produced its share of wild — and sometimes controversial — finishes. But when the dust settled, there was very little movement in the USA TODAY Sports coaches poll.
Alabama retained the No.1 spot after going through the motions in dispatching hopelessly overmatched Georgia State. But No.2 Oregon chipped a bit off the Crimson Tide’s...
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State's defense answered the wake-up call.
And the offense? The Seminoles fired away on all cylinders again, too.
Jameis Winston threw for a career-high 393 yards and had a career-high five touchdown passes -- Kelvin Benjamin (two), Nick O'Leary (two) and Kenny Shaw -- as No. 8 Florida State ripped No. 25 Maryland 63-0 on Saturday afternoon...
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- No. 25 Maryland was supposed to challenge Florida State.
To push the Seminoles on offense and defense, to see what the team was made of -- and if No. 8 Florida State was a legitimate contender in both the ACC and on the national stage.
Instead, Florida State pushed around Maryland. In every phase of the game. And it wasn't even close.
Jameis Winston threw...
Coming off a productive bye week, Cameron Lynch is ready to get the show on the road against Clemson. The junior linebacker talks about Clemson's high-powered offense, quarterback Tajh Boyd and more inside.
What there to say? The Clemson Tigers are for real. Tajh Boyd is certainly for real. And Sammy Watkins is for real. As a whole, they just looked bigger, stronger and faster (at least for a while). The Syracuse Orange had some opportunities but refused to get out of their own way long enough to take advantage of those opportunities. And in the end, Clemson rolled to a 49-14 victory...
