MARYLAND (0-2)

This Saturday: At West Virginia, Mountaineer Field, Morgantown, 1 p.m.

Previous game: The Terps became the first Atlantic Coast Conference team to hold a halftime lead on Florida State since the Seminoles joined the conference in 1992. The 20-17 edge quickly evaporated in the second half, however, as Florida State scored five unanswered touchdowns for a 52-20 victory. The Mountaineers (1-2) lost, 17-12, at Rutgers.

Key statistics: The Seminoles gained 731 yards total offense, their most since they pummeled the Terps for 858 two years ago. The Terps, who last season allowed more yards than any team in Division I-A history, are last in the nation in defense, giving up 631 yards per game. Maryland drove 80 yards to a touchdown on the game's first possession, but could muster just 157 yards the rest of the way. Danny Kanell threw for 427 yards for Florida State; Maryland's Scott Milanovich was held to 188 yards. Terps running backs gained 34 ards.

NAVY (0-2)

This Saturday: At Bowling Green, Doyt Perry Stadium, Bowling Green, Ohio, 1 p.m.

Previous game: The Midshipmen suffered their seventh straight loss in bowing to Virginia, 47-10, in Annapolis.

Bowling Green (1-1) routed Akron, 45-0.

Key statistics: Jim Kubiak set an academy career record for pass completions (390) by completing 25 of 55 passes for 298 yards. He also moved into second place behind Bill Byrne on the all-time yardage list with 4,294 yards. Kubiak has passed for more than 200 yards in four straight games and 11 of the past 12. His 55 passes broke his mark of 54, set against Wake Forest in 1991. Ryan Bucchianeri's 36-yard field goal in the second quarter broke an 11-quarter scoreless streak against Virginia.

Key statistics: Bethune-Cookman's Tony Kerrin completed 23 of 39 passes for 288 yards and four touchdowns, earning Offensive Player of the Week honors in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Morgan State had difficulty sustaining a drive, especially in the first half when it was 0-for-9 on third-down conversions.
