See release from the ACC below.

RECEIVER – Rashad Greene, Florida State, Sr., WR, 6-0, 178, Albany, Ga. Greene had 11 catches for a career-best 203 yards and a touchdown in the Seminoles’ 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State. Greene’s yardage total was the best by any "Power Five" conference player and the second-best overall in the country. His 50-yard catch-and-run TD with just under four minutes left in the fourth quarter gave FSU a 37-24 lead. In his last two games, Greene has 20 catches for 350 yards – dating back to last season’s BCS Championship.

In doing so, Greene moved into fourth all-time in receiving yards, passing Greg Carr and Kez McCorvey.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN – Mario Edwards Jr., Florida State, Jr., DE, 6-3, 294, Gautier, Miss. Edwards had had four tackles, a sack and a pass breakup in the Seminoles’ victory over Oklahoma State. Edwards’ fourth-quarter sack was a vital play as it came with FSU holding a 27-24 lead. The sack resulted in a 14-yard loss and killed the Cowboys’ momentum. Edwards’ pressure on the quarterback helped limit OSU’s potent passing attack (335 yards per game the last four years) to just 203 yards. He played every defensive snap for the Seminoles.
