The two schools have a long, storied history — Austin Cox took a deep dive into the matchups between FSU and Notre Dame, from Rashad Green heroics to the first-ever on-location College Gameday.
Head coach Mike Norvell briefly touched on his own personal history with Notre Dame during yesterday’s availability, and we also got the chance to hear from linebackers coach Chris Marve, running back La’Damian Webb, defensive back Meiko Dotson and linebacker DJ Lundy.
“[I’ve been] on staffs that played Notre Dame like four out of five years, whether it was at Tulsa when we went up there, in Pitt the one year we played them and then two years at Arizona State.”
Some other news we got from Norvell was that freshman defensive back Demorie Tate, who was FSU’s highest rated signee in the 2020 class, will be taking an academic redshirt year.
Defensive back Cyrus Fagan made his departure official on Wednesday, posting a farewell letter.

Great news for Bobby Bowden:
Talked to Ann Bowden a few minutes ago. Upbeat. Was told today by physician "everything is fine" with Coach. Will continue to monitor oxygen level, but she said all is good. Family positive about treatment plan. .— Jim Henry (@JimHenryTALLY) October 7, 2020
Jimbo Fisher takes a trip down memory lane as he preps to take on Florida:
I asked Jimbo Fisher about his favorite games against the #Gators. He mentioned 2010, because it was his first one (and first win against them) and also referenced '17, because it was his last game with #FSU— Matt Baker (@MBakerTBTimes) October 7, 2020

Excited to get back out there at next week’s CJ Cup at Shadow Creek. It’s been a challenging but productive two months of rehabbing my injury. Looking forward to starting the new season in Vegas! As a past champion, I commend everyone at the CJ Cup for moving forward with the tournament during this difficult time.
