Injured DT McAllister, S Hunter out vs. Maryland

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State will be without two key defensive players when the Seminoles face Maryland in a matchup of unbeaten teams on Saturday.

Defensive tackle Demonte McAllister (concussion) and safety Tyler Hunter (neck) have been ruled out, coach Jimbo Fisher said after Thursday’s practice.

Hunter will miss his second straight game. He is visiting another doctor for a second opinion on his neck. Hunter has eight tackles and an interception this season.

No. 8 Florida State (4-0) will host No. 25 Maryland (4-0) on Saturday at noon.
