As we begin to inch closer to Florida State’s Dec. 29 Champs Sports Bowl meeting with Notre Dame, more and more details about the lead-up to the game are being announced.
FSU on Wednesday morning announced the Seminoles’ travel plans for the Orlando bowl game. the Seminoles will arrive in Central Florida on Christmas Eve, setting up shop at their hotel off International Drive in Orlando. (Both teams, as well as the media, will be staying at neighboring hotels near Seaworld and Universal Studios)
On Christmas Day, the Seminoles will practice for the first time in Orlando.
FSU has typically arrived to its respective postseason site several days ahead of time. when asked Tuesday about his team’s bowl preparation, coach Jimbo Fisher said very little would change for the Seminoles. they were going to adopt the practices that were employed last season; practices that he first picked up as an assistant at Auburn under then-Tigers head coach Terry Bowden. Terry learned about bowl preparation from his father, longtime FSU coach Bobby Bowden.
The Seminoles (8-4) and Fighting Irish (8-4) play at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Dec. 29.
