Boston College Running Back Andre Williams is the ACC Player of the Week for Week 6

Each week, we’ll be identifying the best ACC (plus Louisville) player from that weekend’s games. As always, it’s a completely arbitrary award with no specific criteria beyond the vague concept of “excellence.” No, we don’t take write-ins.

ACC Player of the Week, Week 6: Andre Williams, RB/Boston College

Week six was a big weekend for several ACC players (as you’ll see in the honorable mention section below), but perhaps none was as impressive as Williams. The senior was already having a strong season before Saturday’s matchup with Army, and then simply went off to put his overall statistics into another stratosphere. His 30 carries for 263 yards and five scores were astounding — and among the best the ACC has ever seen from a running back. For a BC offense that has fluctuated between serviceable and impressive, it’s very obvious who controls that perception. Williams has already set career highs in every rushing category and is the conference leader in rushing yards by nearly 200 yards right now. While his name wasn’t coming up much when talking about the league’s top playmakers in the preseason, it certainly is now. As long as he continues operating at this level, the Eagles postseason prospects suddenly look a whole lot brighter.

Honorable Mention:

Tajh Boyd, QB/Clemson (20/27 passing, 455 yards, 5 TD, 2 INT)

Jameis Winston, QB/Florida State (23/32 passing, 417 total yards, 5 TD, 0 INT)

Tanner Price, QB, Wake Forest (27/43 passing, 339 total yards, 4 TD, 1 INT)

Michael Campanaro, WR/Wake Forest (12 catches, 153 yards, 2 TD)
