NG Timmy Jernigan leads No. 2 Florida St defense

(Eds: Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By KAREEM COPELAND Associated Press Florida State nose guard Timmy Jernigan isn't always double-teamed. Opponents, on occasion, take the risk leaving the 6-foot-2, 296-pounder matched up against a single interior lineman. Those instances rarely end well for the offense and only serve as an insult.

FSU reloads after losing four starters on defensive line

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State had the nation's No. 1 pass defense last season. And the No. 2 defense overall.
