Florida State (7-3) at Maryland (7-3)
Saturday, 7:45 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Maryland – 1, Total 46
Two of the top teams in the ACC get together in what should be a great Saturday night ESPN game. Maryland is ranked 22nd in the country and can clinch the ACC title with a win against Florida State and a win next week against Boston College. The Terrapins are 6-0 at home this season thanks in large part to quarterback Chris Turner. He has thrown for 967 yards and six touchdowns at home this season. He gets support in the running game from Da’Rel Scott who has 897 yards rushing and six touchdowns. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Florida State on the Road.
Florida State is coming off a poor effort against Boston College last week when five receivers were suspended. They are hoping that some of those players will be back this week. “Hopefully the distractions are gone,” FSU head coach Bobby Bowden said. The Seminoles will need much better play out of quarterback Christian Ponder who threw three interceptions last week in the loss to BC. “If you ever want to play your best, it would be this weekend,” Bowden said.
