TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 15 Florida State Seminoles (7-3, 6-0 ACC) returned outside today to prepare for North Carolina (2-8, 0-6 ACC) after being forced indoors yesterday due to weather. The Seminoles return home for the first time since their contest on October 26 against Notre Dame. The Seminoles will be hosting their final conference home game of the 2002 season.
“We had a good practice out there today,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “It was important that we got back outside today. The boys seemed really spirited out there. We’ll go in shorts tomorrow and work in the stadium.”
FSU comes into the contest leading the ACC by averaging 428.5 yards of total offense per game. North Carolina is averaging 367.3 yards per game and is ranked eighth in that category. The Tar Heel defense comes into Tallahassee last in the ACC by allowing 468.2 yards per game.
Saturday’s game against the Tar Heels is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start and will be televised regionally on ABC.
