Seminoles excited for national spotlight game

TALLAHASSEE, FL (WALB) -

The Seminoles will have a national audience Monday night as they will take on Pittsburgh at Heinz Field.

"I mean, that's live," said linebacker Telvin Smith. "Knowing that everybody is going to have their eyes on you. Just knowing those expectation that people have for Florida State and this program. You know, that's what we like though. We like those expectations to live up to."

Smith is one of four players from the Southern Georgia region expected to start tonight against the Panthers. Like Smith, Hunter is from Lowndes County at will get the start at safety. Albany's wide receiver led the team in receptions last year and will be a target for redshirt freshman Jameis Winston. Moultrie's Cameron Erving is an anchor on the offensive line.

Erving is projected by some to be a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which means he should get used to playing on Monday nights. For him, however, he is just excited to get back on the field.

"We haven't played football, a real game since January 1st," Erving said. "So you know its exciting we just got to get ready. It's going to be electric."

This game will be Pittsburgh's first as a member of the ACC.
