Tonight: Florida State Seminoles at No. 22 Maryland football game preview capsule

With a win tonight over the Seminoles (7-3, 4-3 ACC) and next week at Boston College, the Terps can clinch the Atlantic Division and a spot in the conference title game. Although inconsistent this season , they are 6-0 at home. They haven't gone undefeated at home in a season since 2003. Another interesting stat: Maryland (7-3, 4-2) is 4-0 against Top 25 teams this season (more wins against ranked teams than any other team) but 0-1 as a ranked team. Chris Turner, left, has thrown 123 consecutive passes without an interception. Da'Rel Scott (858 yards, six TDs) is a power running back while Davin Meggett (365 yards, four touchdowns) is more elusive. Darrius Heyward-Bey (35 catches, 539 yards, five touchdowns, 197 yards rushing, one touchdown) is one of the league's best offensive threats. Defensively, the Terps have allowed just three fourth-quarter points in six ACC games.

WATCH OUT FOR … Maryland is 4-0 in games decided by seven points or fewer. Its past two wins against FSU, both at home and its only two among 18 games, were by a field goal.
