Video: Mark Stoops on facing Kurt Roper

After practice today, Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was asked about his history against Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper when both were in the ACC. Stoops was the defensive coordinator at Florida State from 2010-12. Roper was the offensive coordinator at Duke from 2008-13.

They met twice with, as you would expect, Florida State winning both times.

The Seminoles won 41-16 at Duke in 2011. Stoops’ defense held the Blue Devils to 289 total yards. Duke rushed for 63 yards on 27 carries and completed 26 of 43 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown, with one interception.

Florida State’s conference champion 2012 team beat Duke 48-7 in Tallahassee. FSU held Duke to just 232 total yards. The Blue Devils rushed for 103 yards on 33 carries. They completed just 16 of 37 passes for 103 yards. FSU led that game 31-7 at the half.

Florida will be a whole different deal, however, given that the Gators have better athletes than Roper enjoyed at Duke when he was working for head coach David Cutcliffe.
