Oct. 23, 2002

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 11 Florida State Seminoles (5-2, 4-0 ACC) continued its preparations for Saturday’s game against No. 6 Notre Dame (7-0) with a 19-period practice Wednesday afternoon in shells. The team opened up practice with work on special teams and individual drills, but spent the majority of the day working against Notre Dame scout teams.

“I added two more captains this week,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “The previous three (Brett Williams, Patrick Newton and Jerel Hudson) are still there and I added Montrae Holland for the offense and Alonzo Jackson for the defense. They both have been playing outstanding ball and are good leaders.”

This weekend’s game with Notre Dame could come down to who has the fewest turnovers. Florida State comes in ranked sixth nationally with a +11 turnover margin, while Notre Dame has turned 20 of their opponents’ turnovers into 78 points.

The game against Notre Dame on Saturday will be televised nationally by ABC and is scheduled for a 12:00 noon kickoff.
