How Future Foes Fared 10/24

TSR's Carlos Olazagasti recaps how the Terps future foes fared this past weekend.

The Maryland Terrapins continued their ACC struggles this weekend with a sloppy loss at Duke. That leaves the Terps with one idle week followed by four more conference games. Here's what the teams remaining on Maryland's schedule were up to this weekend:

North Carolina State (Nov. 7 in Raleigh) was idle and remains 3-4 (0-3 ACC).

Virginia Tech (Nov. 14 in College Park) was idle and remains 5-2 (3-1 ACC).

Florida State (Nov. 21 in Tallahassee) injected may have salvaged its season with a come-from-behind, 30-27 victory against North Carolina. The Tar Heels led 24-6 after a touchdown run early in the second half but the Seminoles took over from there. Quarterback Christian Ponder completed 33 of 40 for 395 yards and three second-half touchdowns, one of which was a 98-yarder to Rod Owens who caught 9 balls for a total of 199 yards. Florida State won despite notching just 43 total rushing yards. FSU improves to 3-4 (1-3 ACC).

Boston College (Nov. 28 in College Park) went to South Bend and had its six-game win streak against Notre Dame snapped with a 20-16 loss. A second-quarter touchdown catch by Rich Gunnell coupled with a third-quarter touchdown run by Montel Harris put the Eagles ahead 16-13. But the Fighting Irish went ahead in the fourth with Jimmy Clausen's second touchdown pass of the day and never looked back. BC quarterback Dave Shinskie threw three interceptions as the Eagles lost the turnover battle 5-0. BC falls to 5-3 (3-2 ACC).
