    Noles Wrap Up Practice As They Look For Win Against Tigers

    FSU Sports Information Excerpts:

    It is not the Bowden Bowl nor is it a Labor Day showdown but there is no doubt this Saturday’s game between Clemson and Florida State is a big one. The Seminoles need the win to keep their chances of advancing to the ACC Championship game alive. The Tigers are looking to keep the momentum going from an impressive win at Boston College last week. FSU is hoping to avoid losing to an ACC opponent for the fourth straight time for the first time in program history and on top of all that, the game will be played on head coach Bobby Bowden’s 79th birthday.

    QB Christian Ponder:
    On practice this week:

    “I thought this whole week we had a pretty good week at practice. I think a lot of guys are motivated after what happened last week and Clemson is a big game for us so I thought we prepared pretty well.”

    On the biggest challenges Clemson’s defense brings:

    “They’re very talented. They’re very athletic and they execute pretty well. I think they are a lot like our team in they compare pretty well. They’ve got a lot of talent so we’ve got to out execute them and that’s what it’s going to come down to.”

    Offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher:
    On the practice this week:
    “They had a good Monday, Tuesday and played very well. Not to say Wednesday and Thursday were bad, but I mean Tuesday was exceptional. It’s been a solid work week. It better be because we’ve got an excellent team to play.”
