TALLAHASSEE -- When FSU travels to USF on Saturday, many Seminoles will be playing in their hometown, forcing some players to go to great lengths to secure tickets.
A lot of teammates not from Florida let me use their tickets, so I actually have 24 tickets for family and friends to come watch me, said James Wilder Jr., who played at Tampa Plant. Im still trying to get more but I think I asked pretty much everybody. I think I maxed out.
Rest pays dividends
It seems the day off paid off for FSU.
I thought we had a very good practice [Tuesday], good attention to detail. I really like what we did, coach Jimbo Fisher said. Recovery time is a big thing youre worried about. After those late-night games, getting those 48 hours [of rest] in is huge.
