TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —- It’s seven quarters and counting without an offensive touchdown for Maryland.
Jamarr Robinson nearly had Torrey Smith for a long score late in the first quarter, but the connection was just slightly out of sync.
Meanwhile, Florida State had a touchdown march capped when Jermaine Thomas dropped a carry, collected the bounce and strolled into the end zone. The extra point clanked off the right upright —- and through for a score.
If that isn’t a classic Maryland ‘09 play, I don’t know what is.
It’s 7-0 Seminoles early in the second half, though Maryland now has the ball around midfield.
