TALLAHASSEE -- One thing the fourth-ranked Seminoles have focused on ahead of Saturday’s game against the 10th-ranked Clemson Tigers is defending against the mobility of junior quarterback Tajh Boyd.
“The challenge is to make sure you [stay] within your rush lanes and not let him scramble and create plays with his legs and create big plays,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “He creates a ton of challenges, but it is always a defense’s job or mentality to affect the quarterback in any way that they can possibly do that, but he is a heck of a player, and it will be a great challenge.”
• Clemson has won just one time in Tallahassee since the Seminoles joined the ACC in 1992 and only three times ever.
The Tigers were also not a particularly strong road team last season, losing their last three away games and finishing just 2-3 for the year.
