TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State football team makes its return to Doak Campbell Stadium this Saturday for a game against Maryland.

The Terrapins (2-4) travel to Tallahasee on the heels of a nail-biting 56-45 loss to Clemson last weekend.

In that game, C.J. Brown started in place of Danny O’Brien at quarterback and ignitated what had been a stagnant Terps attack. Brown has since been named the new starter after rushing for 162 yards from his signal-caller spot. He also threw for 177 yards and three touchdowns in the loss.

The game against the Seminoles will mark Brown’s first-career contest away from Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md.
