TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The No. 1 ranked Florida State Seminoles (5-0)
practiced briefly Monday in preparation for their Saturday game against
in-state rival Miami (2-2). Florida State has won the last four games
against Miami and six of the past 10.
The Seminoles began practice inside before moving outside under the
lights. The eight-period practice began with work on the kicking game and
concluded with work against the scout teams. The defense focused on
preparing to face another versatile quarterback in Miami’s Kenny Kelly.
Kelly has passed for five touchdowns and rushed for two.
“We’ve got to try and contain Kelly if we can,” said head coach
Bobby Bowden. “He’s excellent at breaking containment and running for a
first down. He’s very dangerous and he’s got a good arm.”
FSU will enter Saturday’s game against Miami with the nation’s
longest home winning streak at 26 games. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:00
p.m. The game will be televised on ABC.
