Seminoles want to run more

One of college football's greatest traditions was born on Sept. 16, 1978,
when Jim Kidder, Florida State's first Chief Osceola, mounted his horse,
Renegade, then charged down the field at Doak Campbell Stadium and planted
a flaming spear at midfield before a game against Oklahoma State. Saturday,
that tradition comes to the First Coast when Chief Osceola and Renegade
make their first road appearance in 14 years for FSU's game against
Colorado at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
