Uncharacteristic turnovers for both teams
By Heather Dinich
COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Both teams entered this game with something to brag about in the turnover department. Entering Saturday night, FSU's top trio of tailbacks had 223 carries without a fumble -- a span of 10 games.
That streak ended with Chris Thompson's fumble (coincidentally, he was the last one to fumble it, on Nov. 7, 2009). FSU has had two turnovers, Maryland one -- a fumble by Danny O'Brien, but the Terps are 6-2 this season when winning the turnover battle.
