Florida State burnished its stats in an easy win over Nevada. So how did the win shake up the power rankings? Safe to say the top spot went unchanged. (Previous week's rank in parentheses.)

1. QB Jameis Winston (1): Three incompletions? An interception? What a bum!

2. WR Rashad Greene (3): Just 39 yards on three catches, but his TD grab was as good as it gets.

3. CB Lamarcus Joyner (2): Tied for team lead with six tackles. In fact, FSU had four players with at least five tackles. Three of them were DBs.

4. LB Christian Jones (7): Five tackles and was all over the field making plays early in the game, particularly when the rest of FSU's D was struggling.

5. WR Kenny Shaw (8): Two weeks, two games of 90-plus receiving yards. Shaw scored FSU's first touchdown and racked up 147 all-purpose yards.

6. LB Telvin Smith (4): Four tackles and a strong day after a few hiccups on Nevada's opening drive.

7. DT Timmy Jernigan (5): Relatively quiet day with just three tackles. He had a fourth, but it came without his helmet and led to a 15-yard penalty.

8. RB Devonta Freeman (10): Karlos Williams was all the buzz after the game, but it was Freeman who starred early. He finished with 109 yards, a TD and a 60-yard scamper.

9. S Terrence Brooks (9): Tied for the team lead with six tackles, 10 tackles and an INT through the first two games.

10. TE Nick O'Leary (6): Just two catches for 16 yards. They can't all be three-TD games.

Honorable mention: Williams, RT Bobby Hart, CB Jalen Ramsey, S Tyler Hunter
