RALEIGH, N.C. -- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher doesnt figure the No. 19 Seminoles will have an easy time at North Carolina State on Saturday night.The Seminoles (5-3, 2/3 Atlantic Coast Conference) have lost three of five meetings in Raleigh, including one four years ago while carrying a No. 3 national ranking. Even the wins havent been easy, with Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and the then-No. 1 Seminoles having to rally from 17 down in a 56-41 shootout in their last visit here in 2014.They like playing us, Fisher said of FSUs troubles in Raleigh.The season hasnt gone as expected for FSU, which was ranked No. 4 in the preseason AP Top 25 but lost in a rout at Louisville then at home to North Carolina on a last-play field goal. Last week, the Seminoles lost a tight contest with No. 3 Clemson, effectively taking them out of the Atlantic Division race.Now FSU is playing for bowl eligibility against the Wolfpack (4-4, 1-3).Were trying to control where we are and be where our feet are, tailback Dalvin Cook said. I love this group of guys. One of the best groups Ive been around and we have to seize the moment. I think we do a good job coming back and assessing things. Guys are embracing it.The Seminoles face a team desperately trying to find its footing after three straight losses. N.C. State has looked lost ever since missing a short field goal that wouldve beaten Clemson at the end of regulation in what became an overtime loss . The Wolfpack followed with a blowout loss at Louisville, then lost at home last week to a Boston College team that had lost 12 straight ACC games.Weve just got to get our confidence back, Wolfpack running back Matt Dayes said. I feel like the guys lost their confidence. But you know each day were getting it back every day. So were moving in the right direction right now. Well be fine this week.---Some other things to know about Saturdays Florida State-N.C. State game:TURNOVER MARGIN: The Seminoles lead the ACC with a plus-seven turnover margin and have forced a turnover in nine straight games dating back to last season. Theyre facing a team that has committed eight turnovers in its current three-game skid. If that trend continues, the Seminoles could be in for a big night.COOK CLOSE TO MARK: Cook leads all power-conference backs in rushing yards (1,069). He needs 193 yards to break Warrick Dunns career record of 3,959 yards. Cook ran for 138 yards with two touchdowns in last years meeting.KEEPING FRANCOIS UPRIGHT: Deondre Francois leads freshman quarterbacks in average passing yards (270.2) but has been sacked 23 times, including six last week against Clemson. Fisher has called Francois one of the toughest quarterbacks he had but the amount of hits he takes is becoming a concern.RUNNING IN PLACE: Dayes is the leagues No. 3 rusher at about 91 yards per game, but the Wolfpacks ground game has struggled with a combined 45 yards against Louisville and Boston College. N.C. State must get Dayes going early. I think weve just got to hit some and get our confidence back up going with it, center Joe Scelfo said. We cant have these past few games with this rushing attack. Its not going to cut it.SAMUELS TOUCHES: Somehow, North Carolina States do-everything all-ACC threat Jaylen Samuels had one offensive touch for 8 yards against BC. Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said some of the plays were designed to get him the ball only to see the defense take him away. Obviously hes one of the best players in the conference and we cant allow the defense to take him away, offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz said. We have to do a better job, I have to do a better job, of making sure he gets the football. That responsibility falls on me.---Associated Press Writer Joe Reedy in Tallahassee, Florida, contributed to this report.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org Adidas NHL Jerseys Wholesale .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head.

China NHL Jerseys .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team. Chris Froome strengthened his grip on the yellow jersey on a sombre day at the Tour de France.Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin won the Stage 13 time trial from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to La Caverne du Pont dArc with Froome setting the second-best time to add another minute to his cushion over second place.But Froome, a Monaco resident, had little interest in discussing the race, which took place in the wake of the terrorist attack that killed at least 84 people in Nice on Thursday night.Although he attended the yellow-jersey holders customary news conference after the stage, the Briton took no questions and instead gave a short statement.I think its pretty clear today everyones thoughts are with those affected down in Nice, Froome said. I think its difficult for us to even be here talking about the race with all that happening yesterday down in Nice.Its somewhere pretty close to home for me, somewhere I do a lot of training, and to see the promenade the way it was yesterday evening with bodies over the road is horrific, horrific scenes.My deepest sympathy, my deepest condolences go out to those families who have lost loved ones in Nice.Time trial specialist Dumoulin won with a time of 50 minutes, 15 seconds over the rolling 37.5-km stage, with Froome 1:03 off that pace.But with Bauke Mollema the next best among the general classification contenders, Froome is considerably more comfortable in yellow going into the weekend.Mollema moved up to second overall, displacing Briton Adam Yates, but he is 1:47 behind Froome.After the stage, Froome was joined on the podium by the other jersey holders -- Yates in the young riders white, Peter Sagan in the points leaders green and Thomas De Gendt in polka dots for the king of the mountains -- as well as Dumoulin and several Tour officials to pay their respects to victims of the Nice attack.Several children were among the dead after a terrorist drove a truck through crowds celebrating Bastille Day along the Promenade des Anglais.ddddddddddddOn Friday morning, Tour officials met with police, government, regional and security officials to discuss security arrangements, and Tour director Christian Prudhomme vowed the race would continue in sobriety and with dignity.We wish today to be dignified, in tribute to the victims, Prudhomme said. We are thinking about the families, we offer our condolences to everyone who has been affected, who has lost a loved one. To everyone who is injured, in flesh and in their being.We asked questions of ourselves, effectively. But we think, in agreement with the state authorities, that the race should continue, and we mustnt give in to pressure of people who want us to change our way of life.Twenty-four hours before he crossed the line here, Froome had been caught in a chaotic and bizarre end to Stage 12 on Mont Ventoux, where he crashed along with Mollema and former team-mate Richie Porte when a television motorbike was caught in huge crowds on the mountain.After briefly racing up the mountain on foot before changing bikes, Froome lost almost two minutes -- enough to cost him the yellow jersey -- until the race jury intervened and he came out with an increased lead, 47 seconds over Yates.It was unclear whether Froome had suffered any injuries in the incident, but there was little sign of that as he turned in a strong Friday ride to increase his advantage.Yates had expected to lose time on this stage and duly gave up almost two minutes to Froome, at least better than the four minutes he predicted.Movistars Nairo Quintana also lost out, slipping to two minutes and 59 seconds off yellow although the Colombian is still in fourth place. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
