TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is introducing a new offensive line in Saturday's opener against Murray (Ky.) State.

The seventh-ranked Seminoles' hopes for getting back to a BCS bowl for the first time in seven years depend on their younger and bigger offensive front keeping quarterback EJ Manuel healthy. Protecting the quarterback has an issue in Fisher's first two seasons at Florida State where injuries have knocked Manuel out of the lineup just like they did his predecessor, Christian Ponder.

Fisher released his depth chart for Saturday's game and will be going with two tackles making their first college start on the offensive line along with two guards each making a second start. Center Bryan Stork is the veteran of the group with seven previous starts for the Seminoles.
