Know Your Enemy: Florida State Seminoles

Opponent: Florida State Seminoles. (Remember, they used to be the girls' school.)

Location: Tallahassee, Florida

Previous Game Against UF: 2006, lost to UF 21-14.

This season: 7-4 (4-4 ACC)

Notable Statistic: Bobby Bowden is 17-15-1 all-time against UF...The Gators have won the last three games in the series, but prior to that FSU won five of six from 1998 to 2003...The last time UF won four consecutive games in the series was when they won six consecutive between 1981 and '86.

Notable Player(s): LB Eugene Hayes is 9th in the nation in tackles for loss, leading the 15th best rush defense (99.45 ypg). DB Patrick Robinson has six picks and broken up another six.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: The election of FSU alum Gov. Charlie Crist was a carefully planned and well executed way to funnel more money into FSU and away from Florida. After years of the gap widening between the cross-state rivals, Crist's administration will ensure that the money that was originally earmarked for UF will go to Florida State to keep a competitive balance. That and FSU sabotaged a UF experiment that would have made love bugs the enemy of mosquitoes.
