Gus Malzahn: Florida State film a ‘challenge’

AUBURN, Ala. — Trying to scheme against Florida State is a tall task.

After all, the Seminoles average 53 points per game while allowing just 10.7, the fewest in the FBS.

And given that Florida State has yet to to take part in a game that was undecided headed into the final period, Gus Malzahn said he knows as much about his opponent’s second-stringers as the starters.

“When you're watching it just from an offensive standpoint watching their defense, their backups are in there as much as their starters are because they're just blowing people out,” Auburn's coach said. “That's very unusual. … They're very impressive with what they're doing.”

With that in mind, Malzahn said the coaching staff will continue scouring for information, looking for ways to detect the slightest weakness the Seminoles may possess.

“They haven't trailed in the second half hardly at all,” he said. “So that's the challenge.”
