Is Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher worried about the August 30 season kick-off against Oklahoma State in Arlington? He doesn’t seem to know. Oklahoma State is a perennially strong team, but Fisher thinks its difficult to judge the first game of the season because anything can happen. To drive the point home, he dropped a famous reference from Robert Zemeckis’ film Forrest Gump.
#FSU coach about OK State: “That’s the thing about opening games, you never know. Like Forrest Gump, it’s a box of chocolates.”

Mike Gundy’s fielded strong teams with explosive offenses at Oklahoma State for nearly a decade now, so the Cowboys shouldn’t be too surprising, but new stars emerge in college football every season, so Fisher’s point is well taken.
