FSU defensive end Josh Sweat shares thoughts on upcoming matchup with Alabama

The magnitude of the matchup is undeniable.

For college football supporters from all fanbases, the importance of Florida State’s season-opening game against Alabama is undeniable.

After all, the Crimson Tide, ranked No. 1, and the Seminoles, ranked No. 3 in both major polls, will take part in the highest-ranked opening game of all time when they clash inside Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday.

Many around the FSU program are downplaying this to a degree, though. FSU cornerback Tarvarus McFadden was quick to say that he is viewing it as just another game and that it will not define the Seminoles’ season regardless of the result.

FSU defensive end Josh Sweat sees it a bit differently as he relayed to the media on Monday.

“We can’t ignore that it’s definitely a big game,” Sweat said. The coaches don’t want to emphasize that this is the only game, but it definitely is a very big game and everybody knows that it is.”

Josh Sweat talks about his great relationship with Florida State Seminoles Football freshman Joshua Kaindoh.
