TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (AP) - Jimbo Fisher heads into his third season at Florida State with the nucleus intact from a team expected to do big things this season, but didn’t.

With nearly all of his top playmakers and defenders back along with one of the nation’s most reliable placekickers, it could be now or never for the Seminoles in 2012.

Fisher is 19-8 in two years since taking over for Bobby Bowden, who put the school on the football map with a pair of national championships in the 1990’s.

The Seminoles (9-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) slipped slightly in 2011 by failing to get back to the ACC title game a second straight season. An 18-14 victory over Notre Dame in the Champs Bowl ended the season on a better note.
