The senior earned the distinction.

NCAA Football: Florida State at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Following Florida State’s game at Florida, senior Derrick Nnadi was named sod captain. He cut out a chunk of turf from Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium which will be placed in FSU’s sod cemetery.

Nnadi has not lost to Florida in his FSU tenure, contributing to those five straight FSU wins over Florida.

“I felt good about it. I was happy I got the opportunity.”

The defensive tackle also talked about the rivalry

Nnadi also spoke about the rivalry as a whole, something he has much experience with, playing in four different times.

He said the team’s mentality coming out onto the field was to force three-and-outs and just hope that whatever play was called, the defense would be able to answer.

The Seminoles defense allowed just 3.25 yards per play before UF’s final garbage time drive that resulted in a touchdown.
