Jacoby Brissett didn't get any questions about Presbyterian after N.C. State's 42-0 win over the Blue Hose on Saturday night.
But the Wolfpack quarterback spent a good chunk of his time talking about Florida State.
"We can't wait," Brissett said.
And why not? N.C. State (4-0) has never hosted the No. 1 team in the country in college football.
Never miss a local story.
The AP poll goes back to 1936 and the Wolfpack has never played the No. 1 team in Raleigh.
The No. 1 Seminoles (3-0) will be the first at Carter-Finley Stadium next Saturday.
N.C. State lost at No. 1 North Carolina in 1948 (14-0 to Choo Choo Justice and the Tar Heels) and faced FSU twice (1995 and '99) on the road when Seminoles were No. 1 in the 1990s.
That's it. Three games against the No. 1 team, all on the road, with an 0-3 record.
The Wolfpack does have a track record of success against the Seminoles at Carter-Finley Stadium. N.C. State beat No. 3 FSU, 17-16 in 2012 — FSU's last ACC loss — and No. 16 FSU, 28-24 in 2010.
The highest-ranked team N.C. State has ever beaten was FSU, No. 2 in 1998, at home, a 24-7 Wolfpack surprise fueled by receiver Torry Holt.
The top-ranked Seminoles come into this game with a 19-game winning streak, which includes a 14-0 mark last season and the 2013 national title.
FSU escaped at home against Clemson in its ACC opener on Saturday, a 23-17 win in overtime. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was suspended for the game for shouting obscene remarks on campus earlier in the week.
Winston played against the Wolfpack last season. FSU pasted N.C. State 49-17 last year in Tallahassee, Fla., a game marked by the Seminoles' explosive first quarter.
The Noles jumped out to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter last year and never looked back.
N.C. State coach Dave Doeren said his players don't need any extra help in getting motivated for this game.
"This is why you play college football to play against a great team," Doeren said.
"They'll be jacked to play these guys, I know they will."
N.C. State got off to a slow start against Presbyterian on Saturday but turned it on before the end of the half.
Brissett, a junior who was at Florida in 2012 when the Gators beat FSU, threw for three touchdowns and ran for another against the Blue Hose. The junior quarterback finished with 195 passing yards with touchdown passes of 18, 27 and 65 against Presbyterian.
Through four games, Brissett has been a revelation for N.C. State's balanced offense. Brissett has completed almost 70 percent of his attempts (83 of 119) for 1,005 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception.
After expected wins out of the ACC over Georgia Southern, Old Dominion, South Florida and Presbyterian, Brissett said the Wolfpack has confidence headed into the ACC schedule, even against FSU.
"They're beatable," Brissett said. "Florida beat them one year I was there. We just need to be ready to go. We're playing really good right now, to have that going into the Florida State game is great."
