"Coach hasn't missed any bars, we haven't missed any steps in terms of practicing for this game, just like it's a normal game," offensive lineman Alex Cooper said. "In all actuality, it's the biggest game we've ever played and have played in a while at this institution."
According to multiple reports, Florida State quarterback Everett Golson will not play in the bowl game for personal reasons.
