N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson has been a big-time producer over the last two weeks. Over that span, he has thrown for 701 yards and racked up a combined seven touchdowns.

After catching just one pass in Week 1, Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith has taken off. He caught a total of 14 passes for 349 yards and five touchdowns over his last three games.
