TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- EJ Manuel passed for 264 yards and a touchdown, and freshman Devonta Freeman ran for 100 yards a second straight week as Florida State routed Maryland 41-16 on Saturday.
Jermaine Thomas chipped in with 86 yards and a 35-yard TD run for the Seminoles (4-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference.)
Dustin Hopkins added a pair of field goals for the winners, but had his consecutive streak stopped at 17 when his first attempt narrowly missed.
Maryland (2-5, 1-3) got its first touchdown on Danny O'Brien's 5-yard run in the third quarter. O'Brien replaced starting quarterback C.J. Brown, who left the game four minutes into the second half after a vicious helmet-to-helmet collision with Florida State's Nigel Bradham, who was penalized for the hit.
Florida State had 482 yards to Maryland's 331.
