TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State football team is back at home Saturday night for another prime time match-up against a top-five opponent.

There was a reason their schedule was the second toughest in the ACC.

Head coach Mike Norvell says he's pleased with the Seminoles' progress earlier this week. Yes, mistakes are still being made but he's seen strides in the right direction.

Norvell is looking for effort from this team, focus on the fundamentals and if they're doing that, that's all he can ask.

"We're looking to build this the right way," said Norvell. "We're looking to, there's not ever a game that I go and take the field and don't expect to be successful. I have great trust in the players. I have great trust in the coaches, the things we're willing to do, and the way we work. If all you're doing is looking three steps ahead, and focused on Saturday night, you're going to miss the chance to get better today."

Gameday protocols are not changing much for the regular fan. Masks are still required and tailgating is still not allowed.

However, students will no longer be required to test negative for COVID-19 before getting a student ticket.

Good news for everyone, the Marching Chiefs will be at Saturday's game in full attendance.
