FSU Gameplans For Auburn

By  | 

Florida State back to work for the second straight day, still trying to get back into the swing of things.

Jimbo Fisher gave the guys three days off for the Christmas Holiday, saisd they were a little slow to start today.

Fisher said it takes a few days to knock off the rust.

Noles began planning for Auburn, watching film, gameplanning for what they do. Auburn can run the ball but so can FSU.

Lets compare the two rushing attacks. Auburn leads the nation in rushing, over 4,300 yards on ground, almost 1,60 more than FSU.

But don't be fooled by those numbers, the Noles can certainly run it.

Look at the numbers that matter. FSU gets nearly 6 yards per carry and both teams are similair in touchdowns. Noles are balances on offense, got another 40 TD's through the air. Don't sleep on this FSU rushing attack.

"They deserve that attention. They've had one of the best rushing attacks all season long since day one. I'm happy for 'em. But we get our attention when we supposed to get our attention. And their attention, they deserve it. But we gonna go out there and practice and prepare for our run game. We gonna go out and execute," FSU junior running back Karlos Williams said.

"Their main two guys is the quarterback and the running back. Not saying nobody else on their team can't be great. But the attention's to them. On our team we've got a quarterback, three running backs, three receivers and a tight end with five o-linemen. And all of us are just like, great." FSU junior running back Devonta Freeman said.

We continue to count down to the big game.

Florida State has a strength of schedule of 56, Auburn is at 20. The quality of the SEC helped the Tigers get to the big game. The SEC has won 7 straight national titles but Auburn is an underdog, everyone in their league cheering for them to keep the streak alive. FSU has a chance to derail those plans.

There are some local ties on this Auburn team. Senior defensive back Ryan White is a Lincoln alum, has 49 tackles and an interception.

TJ Davis is a redshirt freshman defensive back from Godby and has played in 11 games and has 4 tackles.

NFC product Melvin Ray is a sophomore wide receiver with 4 catches for 58 yards, still looking for his first TD.
