COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and his players have spent the past week trying to get over a lopsided loss to Florida State.
Maryland can relate. Coach Randy Edsall and the Terrapins went through a similar exercise earlier this month.
Coming off a 51-14 defeat against the Seminoles, No. 9 Clemson looks to rebound Saturday against injury-riddled Maryland in perhaps the final meeting between two charter members of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Tigers (6-1, 4-1) were unbeaten before being taken apart by Florida State.
Maryland (5-2, 1-2) was also undefeated until running into Florida State, which rolled to a 63-0 victory on Oct. 5.
Clemson is seeking its seventh road win a row. Maryland needs a victory to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2010.
