Maryland-Florida State Preview Capsule

No. 25 Maryland (4-0, 0-0 ACC) at No. 8 Florida State (4-0, 2-0), noon EDT (ESPN)

Advertisement
Line: Florida State by 17 1/2

Series record: Florida State 21-2

WHAT'S AT STAKE

Florida State must reach and win the conference title game to realize its BCS championship aspirations. No. 3-ranked Clemson has the same goal. The Seminoles can't afford an ACC loss outside of the Oct. 19 trip to Clemson. The Terrapins are off to their best start since 2001 and have tied their win total from 2012. Randy Edsall seeks his first winning season in three years as Maryland coach.

KEY MATCHUP

The Terrapins are the first pass-heavy team the Seminoles have played in 2013. Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown leads the ACC in total offense with 331.5 yards per game, including 70.8 yards rushing per game. He is tied for the conference lead with six touchdowns rushing and is No. 2 with a pass efficiency of 176.5. The No. 4-ranked pass defense in FBS will be tested for the first time this season.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Maryland: Receiver Stefon Diggs leads the ACC with 547 all-purpose yards. The sophomore is dangerous in every facet of the game. He was No. 8 in FBS last season with 1,896 all-purpose yards.

Florida State: Freshman DB Jalen Ramsey started the first three games at cornerback then started at safety against Boston College due to injury. He has 19 tackles, one sack, one interception and one forced fumble.

FACTS & FIGURES

Florida State starting safety Tyler Hunter will likely miss a second consecutive game due to a neck injury. ... The Seminoles and Terrapins have played every season since 1992. This is the last scheduled meeting with Maryland moving to the Big Ten in 2014. ... Maryland is ranked for the first time since 2010. ... The Terrapins allow 263.8 yards per game to rank the No. 6 total defense in the FBS.
