Florida State vs. Duke recap: Jimbo Fisher happy with Seminoles' play

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Florida State Seminoles had no trouble with Duke on Saturday. Check out what FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher had to say after the game.

Florida State didn't let Duke show how much of an improved program it is when the two teams went head-to-head on Saturday. The Seminoles beat the Blue Devils, 48-7, while putting up 560 yards on 68 plays. FSU also held Duke to 232 yards on 70 plays, a new season low for the Devils.

The 'noles, while they did make mistakes, never lost control of this game. Jimbo Fisher said after the game that he was proud of his players, despite a lapse and some stagnancy in the midst of the beat down. Fisher wasn't happy about Devonta Freeman's fumble toward the end, even though it did not impact the game.

Still, ball security is something that is expected to be addressed when the Seminoles return to practice following a 41-point thrashing. One player who was especially impressive on defense was FSU linebacker Christian Jones. Here's what Fisher had to say about Jones:

"He had 11 total plays in the game. He was getting out in space. That guy can play when he hits space -- covering and running. He's athletic and he can cover and make some big plays in the field with open field tackles."
