Tallahassee, FL---For the second straight week Florida State fans get to shell out big bucks for a ticket to see their team take on a team that is undoubtedly over matched.

Last week is was 32 point underdog Nevada. This week it's 40 point underdog Bethune Cookman, a F-C-S team out the MEAC coming to Doak. FSU head coach Jimbo having to spend some time trying to convince fans the Wildcats are a worthy opponent.

"They're 3-0, averaging 38 points a game, giving up 9." Fisher said this week in talking about the game. "Giving up less than we are. Went out and beat FIU 34-19 I believe, handled them very easily. A great win for them. They've been at the top of their league for the last two or three years. The coach is doing a great job of coaching them. They've got a great group, very athletic offensively, defensively. They're running the ball real well on offense, very diverse on defense and sound in the kicking game. So we'll have our hands full again and have another great opponent coming in."

That game in Tallahassee set for a 3:30 eastern time kickoff.
