Tallahassee, FL - FSU has clinched the number one ranking for the first since 2000. "We're number one now so that's amazing," said Jon Krudo. FSU moved up to the top spot after Auburn marched to victory against the then number one ranked Alabama with one second left in the Iron Bowl.
" Alabama I thought was one of the ones that was going to go all of the way and be unconquered just like FSU has been, but then there was that upset and Auburn beat Alabama and it put us at the number one slot, couldn't be happier," said Kyle McKibben
We asked FSU Head Coach Jimbo Fisher what his reaction was to the number one ranking, he simply said he's taking it one game at a time."It's great it's all good, but to me it doesn't matter right now. We have to concentrate on playing the game and we can't even think about that," said Coach Fisher. Coach Fisher is focused on their next game which is the ACC Championship, but Seminole fans are already talking about who their opponent could be in Pasadena."I feel confident with our football team no matter who we play, Auburn, Ohio State. It doesn't matter I think either way we're going to win and that's that," said Andrew Shapiro.
The BCS National Championship game is the same day as the first day of classes for Florida State. For the students who decide to go to the Pasadena, they could get penalized for missing class. "I would love to, but we don't have off of school and it would be way to expensive to fly over there, but I would love to go to the game if I could," said Krudo.
The Seminoles will have to win the ACC Championship in order to secure a slot in the BCS national title game. The Seminoles will take on Duke in the ACC Championship which is set for 8P.M. this weekend, December 7th, in Charlotte, NC.
