Tallahassee, FL----To say the least, the buzz lingers over at the Moore Athletic Center Monday. Florida State is coming off the total beatdown of previously 3rd ranked Clemson in Death Valley! Head Coach Jimbo obviously still feeling pretty good about Saturday's road trip.
"Just overall proud of how we competed." coach Fisher said in his Monday meeting with the press. "I thought our defense did a great job of setting the tone early being very physical at the line of scrimmage, tackling well in space. I think one of the keys was we kept great leverage on the football all night, and our tackling angles, which allowed us to get better. Because Clemson is a very dynamic offensive football team. I thought special teams did a really nice job of curtailing things. And offensively we were very physical at the line of scrimmage. Took care of the ball for the most part. Capitalized on most of our opportunities, in situations. And handled two minutes before the half, and coming out of the half well."
That blowout win taking FSU up to number 3 in the A-P and number 2 in the all important BCS rankings.
All that as they head towards the home date with N.C. State Saturday afternoon and the return to Doak of Bobby Bowden. How good is the timing of that now? That game Saturday set for 3:30 eastern.
