RALEIGH - Freshman tailback Andre Brown, fresh off his 248-yard rushing performance against Southern Mississippi, will get the first start of his collegiate career this Saturday when NC State travels to play Florida State in Tallahassee, Fla.

The freshman from Greenville, N.C., had the second-biggest rushing day in school history Saturday afternoon at Carter-Finley Stadium, just three yards away from Ted Brown's long-standing mark of 251, which Brown set in 1977 against Penn State.

When asked in his day-after teleconference Sunday evening, Amato said he would go with the hot hand in Saturday's game against the ninth-ranked Seminoles (7-1).

Amato also said he was pleased with sophomore quarterback Marcus Stone's first career start, primarily because it resulted in a confidence-building victory for the Wolfpack (3-4 overall).

"There are still some things to work on," Amato said. "But I was pleased with how he handled being a starter."
