Wujciak's INT: Alex Wujciak had another long interception return against Florida State. Two weeks ago against NC State, Wujciak returned an interception (the first of his career) 70 yards for a touchdown. Today, he returned one 82 yards to the FSU seven, setting up a touchdown run by Davin Meggett that brought the Terps within one point just before halftime. Wujciak now has 152 interception return yards on the season, breaking the single-season record set by Joe Horning in 1951 (147).
Skinner's Pick: Terrell Skinner recorded his first interception of the season, and second of his career when he picked off EJ Manuel in the third quarter. The interception set up a Maryland touchdown that put the Terps ahead 19-14.
Ferrara solid again: Freshman Nick Ferrara was once again responsible for handling all phases of the kicking game with Travis Baltz out, and had another good game doing so. Ferrara punted four times, averaging 43.0 yards per punt, and made both of his field goal attempts (44, 39 yards). He is now 17-for-24 on the season.
Smith excels again: Torrey Smith finished the game with seven receptions for 74 yards and had a total of 132 all-purpose yards (74 receiving, 62 kickoff, -4 rushing). With that, he moved into third place on the ACC career kickoff return yards list (2,324); into seventh on Maryland's career all-purpose yards list (3,478); into seventh place on the Maryland single-season receptions list (55); and eighth on the Maryland single-season receiving yards list (732).
Robinson comes through: In his second career start, Jamarr Robinson made a number of plays with his arm and his legs. He finished the game 20-of-27 (.741 percent) for 214 yards and a touchdown, and ran 12 times for 58 yards.
Scott Returns: Da'Rel Scott played in his first game since suffering a broken wrist against Clemson on Oct. 3. He helped the Terps' running game by leading the team with 83 yards on 19 carries.
Season-high rushing: Maryland compiled 196 rushing yards as a team against Florida State, which marks a season-high. The previous was 158, achieved against Middle Tennessee State on Sept. 19. The Terps have now compiled at least 100 yards on the ground in the last three games.
Meggett has six: Davin Meggett got into the end zone twice against Florida State, and has a team-high six rushing touchdowns on the year. Meggett finished the game with 59 yards on 13 carries.
Winning the turnover battle: Maryland has been excellent in the turnover department over the last four games, forcing 11 and only committing four. Today, the Terps got 13 points off of three FSU turnovers.
