TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — First-year Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher could do something predecessor Bobby Bowden never did: Defeat an Urban Meyer-coached Florida team.
Florida State (8-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) hasn't beat the Gators since 2003 on Chris Rix' last-minute 52-yard touchdown pass to P.K. Sam.
If nothing else, a win Saturday would give the 22nd-ranked Seminoles the mythical state championship and offseason bragging rights. Florida State earlier defeated Miami 45-17.
The Gators (7-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference)would likely enjoy nothing more than capping off an otherwise disappointing season with a record seventh straight win in a series that began in 1958 only after the Florida Legislature threatened to intervene.
