Blackman, who started his first game of 2018, completed 29 of his 46 pass attempts for 421 yards, four touchdowns and an interception.

Terry led all receivers with 142 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns, marking his first career 100-yard receiving game and logged the most receiving yards for FSU in 2018.

He, along with D.J. Matthews, each turned in 100-yard performances. Matthews was responsible for 133 receiving yards.

The Ashburn, Georgia native ranks fourth nationally with an average of 22.0 yards per catch. That mark is also the best in the ACC.

Blackman and Terry are the fifth and sixth Seminoles to win ACC honors this year, along with quarterback Deondre Francois, defensive end Brian Burns, Matthews and linebacker DeCalon Brooks.
