With a record of 4-6 entering Saturday's home finale against Florida State, Maryland just has to beat the No. 10 Seminoles (9-1, 6-1 ACC, 1st in the Atlantic Division) -- who have recorded their best 10-game record since 2000, FSU's last national championship year -- and the North Carolina Tar Heels to achieve bowl eligibility. For the record, Maryland is also a 31-point underdog.

Really, who doesn't love a nice requiem? Dressing in black is just common sense.
