Johnson is clearly one of the ACC’s top running backs and was on pace to shatter last year’s total of 947 yards. Prior to Saturday’s game at Florida State, the sophomore rushed for 823 yards and six touchdowns on 122 attempts.

The Seminoles’ win was as complete as anything a national title contender has done to another top team this seasons, but FSU may have trouble getting into the coveted 1-2 scenario when the BCS is revealed Sunday night.
