NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Florida State cornerback Lamarcus Joyner admits the last month has been much like studying for a final exam.

Joyner and the FSU defense have gone to school on the Auburn offense, and the primary study guide has been the Alabama-Auburn game film. The Alabama and Florida State defenses are similar.

"It is like you are studying for a final," Joyner said Thursday during the buildup to Monday night's BCS championship game. "Your brain is fried."

He said the Alabama film has been especially helpful.

"We could not have a better head start," Joyner said.

What has he learned from all that film?

"We have been able to look at the mistakes Alabama made," Joyner said. "...You will lose to Auburn the minute you become inconsistent in what you do."
