EJ Manuel and Mike Glennon will face each other head to head for the third time since the two were college quarterbacks. With Manuel and Glennon both playing their college ball in the ACC conference at Florida State and N.C. State, the two quarterbacks faced each other twice. Here were the results.
The first meeting came in 2011 when both of them were juniors. Manuel’s Seminoles won going away 34-0. Manuel had a solid game going 25-34 passing (73.5%) for 321 yards and two touchdowns (20, 26 yards) with one interception and a passer rating of 166.4.
Glennon was 19-34 (56%) for 130 yards with a pair of INTs in the loss.
Glennon and N.C. State would get their revenge the following season when both he and Manuel were seniors. The Wolfpack upset the third-ranked Seminoles in an unlikely comeback effort. Trailing 16-3 in the fourth quarter, Glennon led a pair of touchdown drives to complete the upset in a 17-16 victory.
Glennon went 30 for 55 passing for 259 yards with the two aforementioned TDs with one INT in the win. Manuel was 17-29 passing for 218 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
So the record is even at 1-1 in head to head matchups between the two QBs. We’ll see how things begin in the NFL ranks today.
