Florida State is attempting to win their third straight state title this weekend against rival Florida. The Seminoles have never won three straight games against each of Miami and Florida. Florida State head coach knows how big of a deal winning the state title over Miami and Florida is.
"Heck yeah it is," Fisher said. "It is for us. That's our two biggest rivals. That's our rivalry game. It's important for this state and what it means here. It's extremely important. That's one of the reason's you're head coach here. Those games are important."
Florida State defeated Miami 29-24 this season extending the Seminoles winning streak over the Hurricanes to six games. The Seminoles have beaten the Gators each of the last two years by a combined score of 42-26.
This year the Gators are 10-1 on the season, and have really turned it around. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher has been impressed with Florida's turnaround this season.
"I think Jim has come in with great structure, great organization and a great big-picture plan, and implemented that and got everyone over there to buy into it and become one," Fisher said. "And I think that's the key. It's structure, organization, which then allows you to start changing culture, which is the most important thing if you're going to turn a program around."
Florida won't make it easy for the Seminoles, especially on the road, but if Florida State can pull out the win, they will make some more history.
