The biggest problem that Nevada has right now is that QB Cody Fajardo isn’t practicing thanks to a knee injury, and that very well could keep him out of the fold in this game in Tallahassee. As if it couldn’t possibly get any more difficult for the Wolf Pack, it just did. QB Devin Combs is built in the same mold as Fajardo, and we know that he can run that Pistol offense as well, but there is no way that he is going to be able to come into Doak Campbell Stadium and do the same sort of things that Fajardo was able to do. It’s certainly not helping either that, against a rather similar UCLA team two weeks ago, Nevada gave up 647 yards and 58 points.
QB Jameis Winston is all the buzz right now in Tallahassee. The redshirt freshman played a legitimately perfect game against Pitt two weeks ago on national television, and now, the buzz is all around him that he can win the Heisman Trophy as a frosh and lead FSU back into the National Championship picture. All of that is a bit premature, but it is clear that the Seminoles are going in the right direction. This is a game that just isn’t going to be pretty when push comes to shove, especially knowing that it is the home opener for the Noles. Expect to see Winston account for five or so touchdowns with his teammates picking up some of the rest of the slack. Having two weeks to prepare for the Pistol just isn’t fair either when you’ve got a defense that is this talented, and Head Coach Jimbo Fisher and the gang will certainly exploit that.
