This highest-graded players recap is brought to you by Eckrich, the Official Smoked Sausage of the College Football Playoff.

On a Friday Night special, the Boston College Eagles kept their spot at No. 2 in the ACC Atlantic division with a win over Miami, 27-14. The win improved BC's record to 6-2 (3-1) just one game behind Clemson in the closer than expected division race. Miami's loss drops them to 5-3 (2-2) and on the outside looking in for the ACC Coastal crown.
