Xavier Lee became the first Seminole this season to take home an ACC Player of the Week honor when he was named co-offensive back of the week on Monday. The redshirt junior QB came off the bench and in the second half rallied the Seminoles to a 21-14 win over No. 22 Alabama. The win was FSU's first over a ranked opponent since September 4, 2006.

Lee was 12-for-19 for 224 yards and two TD's. The junior ran for a career-high 59 yards, surpassing his high of 50 against Maryland. It's the first time a quarterback has led FSU in rushing since Lee scrambled for 49 yards in the 33-0 victory over Virginia last season. Lee sparked FSU when he drove the team 67 yards in four minutes to open the second half and break a 0-0 tie. It was the first time FSU had scored on an opening drive in the second half in four games. He then sealed the win with a 70-yard TD pass to De'Cody Fagg making it a 21-7 FSU lead. The pass was the longest play of the season for the Seminoles. It was the longest passing play since Lorenzo Booker hauled in a 73-yard catch from Drew Weatherford against NC State last season on October 5th.
