Florida State was back at practice Tuesday preparing for Saturday’s home opener against Nevada. It’s the third week of the season but coach Jimbo Fisher doesn’t feel like his team has gotten into its rhythm yet.

“I mean, you’re starting to right now, but not yet,” he said.

Florida State last played Sept. 2, beating Pittsburgh 41-13.

“Been almost two weeks again,” Fisher said. “So we’ve got to get ourselves in that game mode.”

Nevada No-Huddle

Nevada runs a pistol-style, up-tempo offense that tries to keep defenses on their heels. Many coaches oppose the hurry-up tactic, but not Fisher:

“It sells tickets,” he said. “It’s going to be good for the fans. … If we think it’s dangerous or we think it’s too many snaps then maybe we’ll make an adjustment — but I don’t ever see that happening.”
