I-AA Charleston Southern gets $400,000 for visiting Tallahassee a week after being crushed 62-0 in its opener at UCF. The Buccaneers, who were 3-8 a year ago, play in the Big South Conference. They began playing football in 1991 and are 0-9 against I-A schools. Charleston Southern offensive coordinator Patrick Nix played quarterback at Auburn from 1992-95. His quarterbacks coach for three of those seasons was current Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher. Seminoles WR Willie Haulstead, left, will miss his second straight game while dealing with the aftereffects of a concussion sustained during the preseason.
WATCH OUT FOR …
FSU had only 92 rushing yards and averaged 3.3 yards per carry during last week's 34-0 season-opening victory against Louisiana-Monroe. Charleston Southern allowed eight rushing touchdowns to UCF. The Seminoles' running back rotation remains unsettled.
