The ACC announced its football players of the week for Week 2, and defending Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson was unsurprisingly on the list.
After his strong road performance against North Carolina on Saturday, the 15-member media panel honored Jackson as well as several others across the league who had standout efforts.
Offensive back: Louisville QB Lamar Jackson
He became the second player in FBS history to put up at least 300 passing yards and 100 rushing yards in consecutive games in a 47-35 win over North Carolina. His 525 yards of total offense were the most ever allowed by the Tar Heels to a single player, and he accounted for six touchdowns.
Offensive line: Duke OT Evan Lisle
He was part of a strong unit that helped pave the way for an offense to record 538 yards and hold the football for 41:18 in a 41-17 win over Northwestern. Quarterback Daniel Jones threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns behind very good protection, and the Blue Devils rushed for 233 yards and three scores.
Receiver: Louisville WR Jaylen Smith
He had a second-straight 100-yard receiving game in the Cardinals’ victory at North Carolina, finishing the contest with nine catches for 183 yards and one score.
Defensive line: Clemson DE Austin Bryant
He led a dominant effort by Dabo Swinney’s defense, recording four sacks to tie a team record in a 14-6 win over Auburn. Bryant led a defensive line that held Auburn to just 117 yards of total offense and only 38 rushing yards on 42 attempts.
Linebacker: Clemson LB Dorian O’Daniel
He had a career-high 14 tackles in the Tigers’ win over Auburn. O’Daniel had two tackles for loss, including 1.5 sacks, and added a quarterback hurry as the defending national champions held Gus Malzahn’s offense in check.
Defensive back: Wake Forest CB Essang Bassey
He had five tackles and an interception return for a touchdown in a 34-10 win at Boston College. His pickoff and score came late in the second quarter and with Wake holding onto a 14-7 lead.
Specialist: North Carolina KR Anthony Ratliff-Williams
He returned five kickoffs for a school single-game record 199 yards in the loss to Louisville. Among the five returns was a 94-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
Rookie: North Carolina QB Chazz Surratt
In his first career start, he completed 12-of-14 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half of the loss to Louisville before being knocked out of the contest.
