One of the more anticipated showdowns of the week between the Florida State Seminoles and the Maryland Terrapins has mercifully come to an end as the ‘Noles readily took care of business at home against the high-powered (or so we thought) Terps.

Jameis Winston was absolutely masterful once again as he went 23-of-32 for 393 yards and an astonishing five touchdowns, including one that was probably the highlight of his season so far. Maryland’s defense, much like everyone else that’s faced him thus far, had absolutely no answer for the redshirt phenom. On the receiving end of those passes, Rashad Greene led the way for FSU with 108 yards on four catches.

The real story coming out of this game, though, is just how dominant the Florida State defense was over a Maryland offense that was tops in many categories throughout the country. Coming in to today, the Terps had not had a game in which they scored under 30 points, and the Seminoles held them to a goose egg.

Now, for Florida State, it’s looking ahead to the showdown in two weeks, following their upcoming bye week, against the Clemson Tigers in Death Valley.
