Sorry FSU, the SEC sticks together. Despite losing to hated-rival Auburn in the 2013 Iron Bowl, defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is not about to help the Seminoles beat the Tigers.
FSU DC Jeremy Pruitt asked Smart for information on Auburn, but he refused to share any knowledge.

FSU D coordinator Jeremy Pruitt says he remains close with Kirby Smart, but Smart isn’t giving Auburn advice. “they’ve got that SEC thing.”

Auburn runs Gus Malzahn’s trademark “hurry up no huddle” offense, which relentlessly pounds the rock until running lanes open up and the defense is forced on its heels. It has proven to be a bear for opposing teams to stop. Now Pruitt will be tasked with slowing it down, in hopes of helping guide FSU to the school’s first national title in over a decade.
Auburn and Florida State will kick off on Monday, Jan. 6 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
