On Jordan Travis: “Obviously, a multitude of problems. He’s a great runner. A high character kid who has played a lot of ball and seen a lot of looks. Great experience. Can extend plays with his feet. We’ve got to do a great job with rush lane integrity, then we’ve got to tackle as well. They can use him in the run game. He’s a dynamic thrower down the field. (He) presents a lot of problems.”

On if the defense has played with the effort he’s wanted to see: “I think each week has been a stepping stone. I think Saturday night was more like we want to see. I thought the guys played with relentless effort. There was a lot of energy, a lot of passion. You could just feel it on the sidelines. Guys were in tune with what we were doing. Starting the game with a pick-six on the first drive. You could feel the energy in the stadium and the guys playing off of it.”

On Safety Khalil Barnes: “I think he’s an amazing young man. Always has a bright smile on his face. Great personality. He’s really confident in his ability. Understands the game and the leverage of playing different coverages as a freshman which is unique. He has a really good skill set.”

On controlling the edge last year: “I think we could have been better at times, whether that’s from the defensive end standpoint or my guys setting an edge whenever they are down on a tight end. We need to be better at the point of attack, no doubt. Misfit a couple of things at linebacker this year. We cleaned those things up as well.”

On the issues, FSU’s offense presents: “They do a nice job formationally. They give you a multitude of formations-- flavor of the week. They move their guys around based off how they want to attack you.”
