TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- After a humiliating loss at Oklahoma
last month, 16th-ranked Florida State has snapped back with four
straight victories, outscoring its opponents by more than a hundred
The Seminoles (5-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) clubbed
archrival Miami 45-17 over the weekend and have scored 144 points
the last four weeks while giving up only 41 as they prepare for
Saturday's visit from Boston College.
Florida State's defense under new coordinator Mark Stoops has
allowed 94 points this season, but half of those came in a 47-17
loss at Oklahoma on Sept. 11.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is now hoping that his young
team (only five senior starters) can handle the recent success by
taking care of business in games they're supposed to win.
