Florida State ready to face Auburn hurry-up attack

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Florida State practices resemble a track meet as the Seminoles prepare for Auburn's offense.

The Tigers will feature the No. 1 run game in the nation when the teams meet in the BCS championship, but it's not the read-option misdirection that has the Seminoles concerned. The fast-paced, hurry-up nature is the issue.

To prepare for the pace, defensive coaches have players racing back to the ball to line up and get set.

The Tigers want to snap the ball as quickly as possible on offense and hit big plays while the defense scrambles to get in position, get the call from the sideline and make adjustments.

Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt explained that, "It's not hard to run if there is nobody there."
