No. 10 Florida State eyes ACC crown vs. Maryland
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — There's really only one way that Maryland can defeat No. 10 Florida State on Saturday and prevent the Seminoles from clinching a berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.
Terrapins coach Randy Edsall says, "If we want to have a chance to win, we've got to play a perfect game and get turnovers against them."
Especially with a linebacker at quarterback and several key players sidelined with injuries.
Problem is, Maryland (4-6, 2-4) hasn't been anything close to flawless during a four-game losing streak in which it has been outscored 118-58. True freshman Shawn Petty is playing quarterback for the Terps, who have lost four QBs to season-ending injuries.
Florida State (9-1, 6-1) is a 31-point favorite, but coach Jimbo Fisher insists his players are taking nothing for granted.
