TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The eighth-ranked Florida State Seminoles are a no-huddle team looking to pick up the pace.

The Seminoles' offense scored five offensive touchdowns in an 8:15 span during their 62-7 win against Nevada last weekend. Still, coach Jimbo Fisher believes the unit can move faster thanks to a veteran offensive line.

Florida State already has the fifth-ranked scoring offense in the FBS. Baylor and Oregon, teams known for their frenetic pace, are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in scoring offense in 2013.

Florida State is actually moving slower than it did in 2012 behind senior quarterback EJ Manuel. It takes longer to get plays in from the sideline and executed with freshman QB Jameis Winston. That's one of the areas the Seminoles want to improve on.
