FLORIDA STATE — The Florida State Seminoles men’s basketball team suffered another double-digit loss (this time at home) on Saturday against the Virginia Tech Hokies (85-72.) Meanwhile, the women’s basketball team defended their home turf against the Virginia Cavaliers candidly (62-37.)

There were some football coaching additions and a few ‘Noles are going to the Super Bowl after the AFC and NFC championships on Sunday.

Football

Former FSU star and Gadsden County High School head coach Corey Fuller joined the coaching staff to assume the role of director of football relations which was announced on Saturday along with former University of Florida All-American Keiwan Ratliff who will take on the role as assistant director of high school relations.

The Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams will face off in the Super Bowl on February 13th and ‘Noles Jalen Ramsey along with Cam Akers from the Rams will join Auden Tate with the Bengals for the final showdown.

Kansas City Chiefs Roderick Johnson, Joshua Kaindoh, and Derrick Nnadi won’t make it to the big game after losing the AFC Championship to the Bengals 27-24 in overtime.

Recruiting

Things were buzzing about FSU over the weekend. Florida State offered 2023 four-star linebacker Jaiden Ausberry out of Louisianna on Sunday night and 2024 legacy wide receiver Camdon Frier committed to the Noles on Saturday.
