COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Here's a look at the first half:
Turning point: An interception return for a touchdown was nullified by a 15-yard penalty for unnecessary roughness when FSU's Greg Reid delivered a mind-numbing hit on Da'Rel Scott. It sustained a scoring drive for Maryland that tied the game at 10.
Stat of the half: FSU and Maryland have combined for six trips to the red zone and come away with two total touchdowns. The Seminoles and Terrapins have relied on their defense and placekickers, Dustin Hopkins and Travis Baltz.
Best player in the half: Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien. Maryland's offensive tempo is keeping Florida State off-balance and limiting the Noles' substitutions. Florida State's defense seemed caught a little off-guard in the first half, but O'Brien has been poised in executing the offense. He has completed 10 of 19 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown.
