Channel 9's Greg Warmoth has been following the Florida State Seminoles since they arrived in California last week, and coach Jimbo Fisher said his team is ready for Monday night's BCS title game against Auburn.
Fisher said the team is prepared both mentally and physically.
"Whether this is a national championship game or an opening game, it's still a football game," said Fisher. "Our routine will stay exactly the same, and hopefully we'll do very well."
Fisher said he has staff members
on hand to keep team members calm and at ease as they prepare for the biggest game of their lives.
"I really don't think it will be that tough. That's the way they have been all year," said Fisher. "They're prepared."
As for the coach, he said his experience under Bobby Bowden and before that has prepared him as well.
"Hopefully I'll manage it very well," he said. "I'll rely on my experiences in the past and the folks that I've been around and the things that I believe. We have a core belief system of how I want things done and it's worked all year, worked in the past three years and we'll do the same things."
The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:30 p.m.
