TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is counting on a bad experience leading to a good one for his fifth-ranked Seminoles.
Florida State (2-0) is hosting top-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday night with the memory of last season’s embarrassing 47-17 loss to the Sooners still fresh.
Fisher says the biggest improvement that his team has made since last year’s meeting with the Sooners is maturity along with the knowledge of what it takes to beat a team such as Oklahoma.
It’s the first real test of the season for the Seminoles, who have outscored two inferior opponents by a combined 96-10.
The same can be said for Oklahoma (1-0) which opened its season with a 47-14 win over Tulsa on Sept. 3. The Sooners had an open date last weekend.
