No. 7 Florida State set for opener vs. Murray St
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has cautioned his seventh-ranked Seminoles not to overlook Football Championship Subdivision member Murray State in Saturday's season opener for both teams.
The third-year Florida State coach doesn't apologize for bringing in teams that are heavy underdogs to begin each season and says the Racers will present a good test for his squad.
Fisher has said several times this week that Murray State has good players at the skill positions and a dangerous quarterback who can run and throw.
Still, The Seminoles have outscored their last two FCS opponents 121-16 in Fisher's first two seasons as head coach at Florida State. The Seminoles are such a heavy favorite Saturday that there is no point spread on the game.
