Depleted Terps fall on Senior Day, lose fifth straight
For its part, Florida State pulled Manuel with less than 12 minutes remaining and was content to run the clock as much as possible in the fourth quarter. Manuel finished 17 of 23 for 144 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Seminoles, who clinched a place in the Dec. 1 ACC title game for the second time in three years.
Maryland, meanwhile, will sit at home during the holidays for the second straight year and third time in four years. Maryland’s seniors won’t warmly recall another season without a bowl bid or the lopsided loss that assured it, but they won’t depart feeling entirely hollow.
“It’s two different things, really,” senior defensive end Joe Vellano said. “The careers of the seniors are bigger than one game – a lot of working out, a lot of time with them all offseason, a lot of guys you’ll be friends with a long time. It’s a real good group.”
