Pregame: FSU at Maryland


Florida State gets set to take on Maryland today in a game that should clinch the ACC Atlantic divison. As I've written all week, Florida State is a different team on the road this year.

That starts on offense where the Seminoles typically score 25 fewer points and gain about 200 less yards. Against Maryland's 16th ranked defense don't expect things to be easy for Florida State. But I do think that EJ Manuel will have a good game and FSU will break out of its road slump a little bit. 

Maryland's offense is not in good shape by the same token, they will have a linebacker starting at quarterback for them today and will need to rely on Seminole mistakes and turnovers to score. 

The Seminoles should be well rested for this game given that they last played nine days ago. The only real pitfall would be overlooking the Terps with UF coming in next weekend.
