TALLAHASSEE -- For the second consecutive week Florida State (10-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a team by a final score of 59-3. And for the second week in a row, the Seminoles’ starters didn’t play the second half.
One by-product of the blowout wins is that FSU starters have been able to stay rested late into the season.
“It affects how we play and how we practice early in the week, how we practice late in the week — those things do (affect you),” coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday. “When you’ve gone through the previous game where numbers and reps and how your body responds, I think is a big thing. It’s very important for health issues.”
Fisher has also been able to get valuable game-time experience to his underclassmen this season. So far true freshman have accounted for seven touchdowns for Florida State this year.
“I’ve been very pleased with our freshmen class. Even the guys that aren’t playing now, I think will have great futures,” Fisher said.
