TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State grinded out another efficient practice Sunday afternoon inside Doak S. Campbell Stadium. The Seminoles have two more practice days left before taking a three-day break and reconvening on Christmas Day to travel to Atlanta for the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
“Practice has been good,” said Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher. “Both sides did some good things. There’s been a lot more execution. They’re more consistent. I like their body language. I like the conditioning. They’re buzzing through practice with good attitude and bounce in their step.”
The Seminoles are making their 29th consecutive Bowl appearance and are 23-14-2 all-time in Bowl games. FSU will be looking for its fourth Bowl win in the last five seasons.
“It gives you a great feeling of accomplishment,” said Fisher about ending the season with a Bowl win. “I think it sets a precedence for the next year about where you’re going, and I think it sends out a message to the coaches that you’re going in the right direction. I think it’s a very good thing to do. It’s something that you definitely want to do.”
A win over South Carolina in Atlanta also would give the ‘Noles their first 10-win season since 2003. FSU has 18 10-win seasons in the program’s history including a streak of 14 10-win seasons from 1987-2000.
“Ten-win seasons are something that you take a lot of pride in and that’s something that we need to do,” said Fisher.
The ‘Noles will practice Monday and Tuesday this week. Monday’s full-pad session is slated for the afternoon.
