TALLAHASSEE -- Expecting an ‘A’ game
Despite being on pace to become the worst defense in school history, Miami’s defense can count on Florida State to approach this game like it’s the same unit as every year.
“Really you can’t tell because they are so fast and big and tough and they play hard,” defensive end Toshmon Stevens said. “And regardless of what they have done in the past or what they’ve done against other teams, they’re going to bring their best against us because it’s a rivalry game.”
Said defensive tackle Tim Jernigan: “We respect Miami, we don’t overlook them.. This is a game where the record doesn’t matter, what’s in the win and loss column. It’s all about who’s going to perform that Saturday.”
Coach Jimbo Fisher was happy with the energy level of his team as they prepare to travel to Miami. “It’s a rivalry game,’’ he said. “... I really liked the execution [this week].’’
