College Football Week 12: #10 Florida State At Maryland
|FSU needed a last-minute touchdown to win at Virginia Tech last Thursday. But in doing so, Jimbo Fisher’s team notched its first win outside of the state of Florida this season.||Coaching||While Randy Edsall’s hiring didn’t exactly rally the troops in College Park, he should get a free pass this year given all the injuries.|
|E.J Manuel threw for 326 yards last week. He leads the top offense in the country as far as yards per play, and shouldn’t find too much resistance on Saturday.||Offense||The Terps only managed 180 yards last week. What do you expect when your quarterback is a converted linebacker?|
|Maryland may have trouble getting the ball past midfield against this unit, the best in the country by many statistical measures.||Defense||Clemson was able to score at will on Maryland, scoring five touchdowns in the first half alone. Containing the Seminoles will be just as difficult.|
|FSU muffed a punt last week. Dustin Hopkins is just two points away from becoming the highest-scoring kicker in NCAA history.||Special Teams||The Terps rank in the middle of the pack in overall special teams. They will need something above average to stay with FSU for even a half.|
