     === Seminoles drop Terrapins, capture ACC Atlantic Division title ===
 
 College  Park, MD (Sports Network) - Devonta Freeman carried the ball 16 times
 for  148  yards and two touchdowns  as the 10th-ranked Florida State Seminoles
 clinched  the ACC's  Atlantic Division  title with  a 41-14  victory over  the
 Maryland Terrapins.
 
 EJ  Manuel  completed  17-of-23  passes  for 144  yards,  two  touchdowns  and
 an  interception for  the Seminoles (10-1, 7-1 ACC), who captured their second
 divisional crown in the last three years.
 
 James  Wilder  Jr. carried the ball  eight times for  52 yards and a score for
 Florida  State,  which ends the  regular season next Saturday against Florida.
 Rashad Greene and Nick O'Leary each caught a touchdown pass.
 
 Florida  State's Dustin  Hopkins made two field goals and five extra points to
 break   the  NCAA   all-time  scoring  record  for  a  kicker.  He  came  into
 Saturday's  game  needing  three  points  to break  Boise  State  kicker  Kyle
 Brotzman's (2007-10) record of 439.
 
 Shawn  Petty connected  on 8-of-19 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns for
 the Terrapins (4-7, 2-5), who have lost five in a row.
 
 Florida  State never  looked back  after scoring  a touchdown  on its  opening
 possession of the game.
 
 O'Leary's  15-yard catch on 3rd-and-9 set up the Seminoles at the Maryland 45.
 Faced  with  a 3rd-and-1 from  the six,  Wilder Jr. picked  up one yard on the
 ground and Freeman followed with a 5-yard rushing TD to make it 7-0.
 
 "It  was huge. I said  that earlier in the week - the fact that it was an away
 game  - we wanted  to come in here and get a defining drive early in the game.
 That was it for us," Manuel said.
 
 Levern  Jacobs fumbled  on the ensuing kickoff and Florida State recovered the
 ball  at the 10-yard line of the Terrapins. O'Leary hauled in a touchdown pass
 on the next play to make it a 14-point contest.
 
 The  Seminoles  got the ball  in Maryland  territory again after Petty fumbled
 with over three minutes left in the opening period. However, Florida State had
 to  settle for  a 26-yard Hopkins field  goal on the second play of the second
 quarter.
 
 Hopkins added a 40-yarder on Florida State's next possession, making it a 20-0
 contest.
 
 It  was 27-0  at the  half after  Greene caught  a 30-yard  TD pass  with 1:32
 remaining.
 
 Each  team scored  a touchdown in the  third stanza. Kevin Dorsey caught a 33-
 yard  TD pass  for Maryland, while Freeman recorded a 2-yard rushing touchdown
 for Florida State.
 
 "It's  true, a bowl is no longer a possibility, but at the same time we're not
 giving  up and you may have noticed through the entire season, we might not be
 able  to  put the  first half  together, but  we always  come back that second
 half,"  Dorsey said. "That's  been a testament to the team. We're not going to
 give  up. Regardless  of if we're able to  go to a bowl, we're going to go out
 and try to get a fifth win."
 
 Wilder  Jr. and Dorsey each recorded touchdowns in the fourth to close out the
 scoring.
