*It's a cloudless day in Tallahassee, Fla. The locals are saying it feels brisk, although the game-time temperature is expected to rise to the low 70s. You come to Tallahassee, you realize how different it is to be in a region dominated by college football. I heard war chants from my hotel well into the night. Having said that, they're not anticipating anything near a sellout crowd at Doak Campbell Stadium (capacity 82,300). *You can bet Florida State scouted Maryland tight end Matt Furstenburg, who had two touchdown catches and 104 receiving yards against Clemson.

COLLEGE PARK - All week, the media dogged Maryland players with questions about the uncommonly large stakes - for the program and themselves - presented by their game Saturday at No. 8 Florida State. Surely, reporters would say, this must be the biggest Terps game in years - a national-television contest pitting undefeated and 25th-ranked Maryland (4-0) against a Seminoles team (4-0) that it has never defeated on the road in 11 tries. But the game's magnitude was not something the Terps were eager to harp on. Players repeatedly characterized it as just “the next game” or “another game on the schedule.” “[A game]

This could not have been the way Maryland envisioned Saturday's game unfolding -- with its new quarterback dazed by a head-high tackle and the former starter trying to resurrect his team in a season that has now seen the Terps lose five of their past six contests. Florida State's cavernous Doak Campbell Stadium has never been a place for Maryland to seek sanctuary. It proved unfriendly again as the Seminoles knocked quarterback C.J. Brown from the game in the third quarter and beat the Terps, 41-16.

Even in his down time, EJ Manuel wanted to remember. While preparing for offseason workouts, as often as he could this summer, the Florida State quarterback tapped into the very same humiliation, frustration, anger, disappointment, shame and embarrassment that he and his teammates first experienced the second Saturday in September a year ago. He wanted to remember what it was like to see his predecessor get roughed up in the backfield by...

Maryland special teams vs. Florida State special teams If both offenses are struggling in general, give the edge to Maryland because of punter Brooks Barnard (44.5-yard average), who can provide his team better field position than can Florida State's Chance Gwaltney (42.5). If both offenses are struggling to get into the end zone, give the edge to Florida State. The confidence of Terps kicker Nick Novak is cresting, and his 51-yard attempt against Duke went off the right upright, but the game isn't horseshoes and he still has eight misses in 15 attempts.

This is the last of 11 weekly reports from former Dunbar star Tommy Polley, a senior linebacker for the defending national-champion Florida State Seminoles. Highlights: Polley had 12 tackles and one pass break-up as Florida State defeated Wake Forest, 35-6. The defense held its opponent without a touchdown for the third time this season. "We won," Polley said. "There weren't too many other highlights besides winning the game." Lowlights: "A good friend of mine, tailback Jeff Chaney, tore his ACL and MCL," Polley said.

This is the ninth of at least 11 weekly reports from former Dunbar star Tommy Polley, a senior linebacker for the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles. Highlights: Holding N.C. State to one offensive touchdown, recording six tackles and breaking up one pass as Florida State improved to 8-1 with a 58-14 victory. "We earned the big victory, but the biggest highlight for me was seeing my roommate [Tay Cody] get a pick and take it to the house. That was something he had been waiting for his whole career," Polley said.

Football coaches and players are notorious for proclaiming they can't gaze ahead at their schedules because it could distract them from a single-minded focus on the next opponent. But surely Maryland didn't overlook the significance of a stretch of three straight Atlantic Coast Conference games — including two on the road — against teams that have been ranked in the Top 25 this season. It's a period that has threatened to expose Maryland's inexperience and injuries, and define its season.
