"If you look at our defense and compared it to their defense without looking at the color on the uniforms, it's almost identical. You can almost predict when you are going to get one-on-one coverage on the edges. You can line up in ways that are going to assure you one-on-one matchups. We know what each other are doing.'' - Florida State offensive coordinator Jeff Bowden

Amato seeks 4th win vs. Noles
Sammy Batten * Fayetteville (NC) Observer
N.C. State coach Chuck Amato is proof that familiarity breeds success. During his six years in Raleigh, Amato's Wolfpack has claimed three of the nine victories by Atlantic Coast Conference teams against national power Florida State. His overall record against the Seminoles is a respectable 3-3. He'll attempt to add a fourth today as N.C. State (2-2, 1-0 ACC) hosts the 17th-ranked Seminoles (3-1, 1-1) in Raleigh (7:45 p.m., ESPN). Read More

Does Amato still know the code?
Steve Ellis * Tallahassee Democrat
Half of Florida State's 12 league losses since joining the ACC have been to Chuck Amato and Tommy Bowden. As a Bowden, Clemson head coach Tommy knows how his father and brother Jeff think. Chuck Amato spent 18 years as a defensive assistant coach at FSU. Some FSU assistant coaches dismiss the idea that Amato's familiarity with FSU tendencies has played a significant role in FSU splitting its six games with North Carolina State since 2000. That was Amato's first year as head coach of the Wolfpack. Read More
