With a victory, the Seminoles (9-1, 6-1 ACC) clinch the league's Atlantic Division title for the second time in three years under coach Jimbo Fisher, left. It would also give Florida State its sixth consecutive win heading into next week's clash with Florida. Maryland (4-6, 2-4) is trying to end a four-game skid while honoring 17 upperclassmen on senior day.
No. 10 Florida State at Maryland, noon, ESPNU, 1040-AM
WATCH OUT FOR …
FSU's top-ranked defense against Maryland QB Shawn Petty. The Seminoles will attempt to pressure the linebacker-turned-quarterback, who got the starting job after the top four on the depth chart sustained season-ending injuries. Petty has fumbled four times and thrown an interception in his two starts, and FSU will try to increase those numbers. Operating against a defense that has held the opposition to fewer than 10 points in half its games, the 230-pound, left-handed Petty must avoid turnovers to keep the Terrapins in the game.
