Became the starter in 2022 and put up elite numbers, completing 66.2% of his passes for 4,321 yards and a 38-to-7 TD-to-INT ratio. His huge season led to Maye being named the ACC Player of the Year as well as winning the Shaun Alexander Award. He was also a semi-finalist for Davey O'Brien, Maxwell, and Walter Camp Award and was a finalist for the Manning Award.
