TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State University football team
practiced today in full pads for 22 periods as it began preparing for its
upcoming game against Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Sept. 9. The No. 2-ranked
Seminoles have this Saturday off after opening the season with a 29-3
victory over Brigham Young in the Pigskin Classic on Aug. 26.
“We worked in full pads today and we worked on our kicking,” said
head coach Bobby Bowden. “We wanted to continue fixing our mistakes and
start preparing for Georgia Tech. We had a pretty good practice today with
the offense getting the better of the defense.”
The 22-period practice began at 4:00 and was divided into two
halves. The first 11 periods centered on team and 11-on-11 situations
while the second half was dedicated to segment drills.
Florida State will be back on the field Thursday afternoon with
practice scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
