Christian Jones Interview

Lonnie Pryor Interview

Telvin Smith Interview

On defense, all five FSU linebackers looked impressive led by Christian Jones and Telvin Smith who each had eight tackles. Smith also forced a fumble and recovered a fumble and returned it for a touchdown.

Manuel threw touchdown passes to wide receiver Bert Reed twice and fullback Lonnie Pryor. Reed had a six-yard TD reception and hauled in a 36-yard TD catch in a two-minute situation. Pryor's reception came from seven yards out in a red zone situation. Reed finished the day with seven receptions for 81 yards.

FSU's starting offensive line of Henry Orelus, Jacob Stanley, Jacob Fahrenkrug, Bryan Stork and Garrett Faircloth each worked 65 plays. Fahrenkrug at center and Faircloth at left tackle both earned the highest grades on the line.

Besides the linebackers, cornerbacks Greg Reid and Mike Harris each had good days. Reid tallied five tackles with two pass breakups while Harris had six solo tackles to go along with a pass breakup.
