TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Saturday's loss at Louisville is not what this Florida State football team had in mind, especially coming off that big win over North Carolina.

Head coach Mike Norvell admitted Tuesday losing to Louisville like they did was bit of a shock to this team.

Florida State has some time to fix the miscues and heal from some lingering injuries as they don't play again until November 7.

The big thing for this team is to learn to trust what they've been taught throughout the week.

Norvell said he thought they were pressing at times during the game, which didn't help keep their composure.

"We put ourselves in a position to make a play, we have to make a play," said Norvell. "We had a lot of missed opportunities whether it was dropped passes, missed tackles, missteps to a gap. Those things that are critical when you are playing a team that is explosive. You have to respond and play at a high level. We have to continue to grow in where we are, mindset approach in all aspects, but I thought our guys have done a good job since."

Florida State hosts Pitt on Nov. 7.
