TALLAHASSEE -- Two days before its biggest game of the season and one of the biggest games in Atlantic Coast Conference history No. 5 Florida State is trying not to lose focus as it wraps up preparation for No. 3 Clemson.
Theyre relaxed. I think they feel comfortable about what theyre doing, coach Jimbo Fisher said after the Seminoles ended their practice week Thursday. They have confidence in what theyre doing and in themselves, and we know its going to be a tough game.
We respect Clemson. Theyve got a great atmosphere and a great team, and were looking forward to the challenge.
Freshman linebacker Matthew Thomas (Miami Booker T. Washington High) has been ruled out for Saturday nights game with a shoulder injury. Thomas has four tackles, two tackles for a loss and a sack this season.
