TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida State defensive backfield has dubbed itself the "The No Fly Zone" after finishing 2013 as the No. 1 pass defense in the country and setting a school record with 26 interceptions.
The top-ranked Seminoles will have the opportunity to live up to the moniker when they face Oklahoma State in Arlington, Texas on Saturday. The Cowboys feature a fast-paced spread offense and were the No. 14 scoring offense in the FBS last season. Oklahoma State has scored 20 or more points in 52 consecutive games-- the longest active streak in the country.
The Florida State defensive backfield is the deepest unit on the roster despite losing two starters to the NFL and feature three potential first round NFL draft picks. Former Northview standout Marquez White enters his sophomore season as a back-up at defensive back.
