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.

  3. Ronde Barber: Want intimidation? Look at past Bucs teams

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
