Terps' trip to Florida State garners noon kick on ESPN, Maryland opens as 17-point underdogs

Rob Carr

Maryland's game against Florida State will be shown at noon on ESPN.

Update: The opening odds have been released.

When the Terrapins travel to Tallahassee next saturday to face Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles, they'll likely play before their biggest television audience of the season.

ESPN will televise the game on its primary channel at 12 p.m., giving the Terps an opportunity to measure up to a highly-ranked opponent -- or not -- before plenty of the viewing public.

ESPN public relations man Mike Humes tweets:

So Maryland gets an earlier start than perhaps some would have preferred, especially if the Terps break into the top 25 this week to become ranked for the first time under Randy Edsall. But the Terps and 'Noles are the only ACC teams to get the prime network slot, with Clemson-Syracuse and Georgia Tech-Miami relegated to ESPN2 and ESPNU.

The opening odds for the game have also been released, and Maryland is a 17-point underdog to the Seminoles on the road.
