TALLAHASSEE, FL — Fifth-ranked Florida State finalized preparations for
Saturday’s Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Maryland on Thursday
afternoon at Ed Williamson Practice Fields. The Seminoles worked out in
shorts for 75 minutes underneath sunny skies.

“We worked solely on our game plan,” said FSU head coach Bobby Bowden.
“We are going to try to improve on everything that we did wrong last week.”

Florida State worked against its scout team offense and defense while
also practicing special situations.

“We finished up a good week of practice today,” said Bowden. “Maryland
should provide a good test for us on Saturday. I expect them to be very
aggressive and lay it all on the line.”

The Seminole injury of note is middle linebacker Daryl Bush. Bush, who
sprained his ankle in the USC game last week, is listed as doubtful for
Saturday’s contest, which kicks off at 3:30 and will be televised by ABC
