Jumbo Fisher Wants Florida State Seminoles Focused vs Savannah State
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State's Jimbo Fisher isn't worried about winning Saturday's game against Savannah State although he's hopeful the sixth-ranked Seminoles don't completely disregard their underpowered opponent in what appears to be an unfortunate mismatch.
Substituting for West Virginia, which pulled out of Saturday's date with the Seminoles earlier this year, Savannah State comes to town on the heels of an 84-0 pummeling at Oklahoma State to collect a $475,000 check for their sacrifice. The Seminoles are an unprecedented 70 1/2-point betting favorite.
Fisher says he's counting on his team to concentrate on its assignments and play disciplined, focused football.
Florida State demolished Murray State 69-3 in its opener last week and now seeks its fourth win over a Football Championship Subdivision team in Fisher's third year.
