TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — There is no week like rivalry week and for the Florida State football team, this is that week.

This game right here is one of the reasons you come to play football at Florida State University: Florida v.s. Florida State. This year, the game is at the Swamp under the lights with a 7:30 p.m. kick-off.

The Gators snapped a five game skid to the Noles last year, beating Florida State 41 to 14 at Doak.

The Seminoles a near three touchdown underdog for Saturday's game, regardless of the stats. The history tells us this game will be heated, it will be loud, and the Noles will be ready for anything.

"It's not much you can do, play loud music, but the main thing, you've got to focus on the now. Focus on your fundamentals and technique and try to block out the rest of it," said Odell Haggins, Florida State interim head football coach. "We're going to play loud music, but focus on your fundamentals and techniques, and everything else will take care of itself."

Saturday's game set for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at the Swamp. To watch at home, tune into the SEC Network.
