Florida State 10: Week 4 power rankings 

September, 24, 2012
Clemson's high-flying offense finally found some cracks in the armor of the Florida State defense, but the Seminoles' offense managed to step up and overcome an early deficit. That's reshuffled the FSU power rankings a bit, as Saturday's offensive stars push their way toward the top of the list. Last week's rankings in parentheses.

1. EJ Manuel, QB (9)
Manuel was exceptional in the first half, delivered the speech that got his team going in the second, finished the game by completing his final 11 passes, wound up with a career-best in passing yards (380) and rushing yards (102) and selflessly pulled up on what might have been another touchdown run in order to run out the clock. In other words, he has pushed his way into the Heisman discussion and the top of the FSU power rankings.
