Clemson's Watson, NW's Walker, UCLA's Adams: Week 5 top performers
Deshaun Watson shined in his starting debut throwing for a school-record six touchdowns against North Carolina. A true freshman, Watson nearly eclipsed Tajh Boyd's single game passing record (447) and his performance put the Tigers up 53-35 against a Tar Heel defense that gave up 70 points against East Carolina and 500 yards in two previous weeks. “We have a lot more coming from No. 4,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said of Watson after the game.

Anthony Walker and Northwestern spoiled Penn State’s homecoming festivities, as the Wildcats stunned the Nittany Lions 29-6 on Saturday. Walker’s fourth-quarter 49-yard interception return cemented Northwestern’s victory as the Wildcat's defense held Penn State's offense to 266 total yards and two field goals in the game.
Defensive back Ishmael Adams’ two-touchdown contribution was more than enough to lift UCLA past Arizona State Thursday night. Adams jetted to the end zone on a 100-yard kickoff return and also ran back a 95-yard pick six. His 201 total yards surpassed Arizona State’s 53 kickoff yards on the night.
