Florida State football is coming off a 30-20 heartbreaking loss to the Clemson Tigers this past weekend. The Seminoles now look ahead to the NC State Wolfpack for their 4:00 PM matchup on Saturday. This morning, offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham spoke to the media to discuss FSU’s offensive performance and the play of Jordan Travis in Death Valley. Here’s some of what he had to say:

“When you look at the base downs, we were really efficient. That has not been something we’ve done in the last two years. I thought (Jordan Travis) did a really good job being patient in the pocket. I thought he did a great job.”

“We got to stay out of those down and distances against good teams it’s that simple.”

“This was our first real road game with a loud crowd in the last two years. I think it got to us a little bit... All of that is part of the growing progress. We’ve got to stay focused on the task at hand.”

“The games that we score in, we have the explosiveness and the consistency. When you’re on the road against a defense like that, you have to be consistent.”

“(NC State) plays a three down front. They play fast. They play as hard as you could possibly play. There’s no panic in how they play. There’s a reason they’re one of the top defenses in college football. They’re an elite tackling team.”

“They understand that we can’t control the past. All you can do is get better.”

“We’re going against one of the best defenses in college football again this week and we’re going to give the ball to Treshaun Ward. I believe in play is not going to define him. He’s going to go work and get better.”
