With a noon game Saturday in Gainesville, the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles will eat Thanksgiving dinner together on Thursday before departing for the University of Florida a day early.

“We’ll practice at about 1 p.m. on Thursday, then we’ll have Thanksgiving dinner together, then we’ll go down Thursday night together with a noon game on Saturday,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “That’s our routine of going down, getting plenty of rest on Thursday night and being together.”

When asked if he felt being together for a holiday helps with team chemistry, Fisher reminded reporters that there wasn’t another option, but did say his team is like a family.

“I think it does [build chemistry]. We eat together, it’s like a family. They can’t go home anyway because we’ve got the road game. This makes everyone stay together like you have a family right there with you,” Fisher said.
