TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Florida State football team improved to 6-0 with Saturday's win over Louisville, a win that moved the Seminoles up two spots in this week's Associated Press Poll to 9th in the country.

The win, the rankings, that's all nice, but up next for the Noles is Georgia Tech. The Jackets are a team that head coach Jimbo Fisher said is a challenging opponent, mainly because of their offense.

Tech is 2-5 on the year, they haven't won a game since week two against Tulane. On Saturday, the Noles will look to give the Jackets their sixth straight loss, but they'll do it without defensive back Tre Marshall, who tore a tendon in his bicep.

There's no timetable for his return, but regardless, the Noles are still undefeated, and still making a case to make the College Football Playoff for the second straight year, but right now, Fisher said he's just trying to control what he can control.

"We're emerging and evolving like I thought we would," he said during Monday's weekly press conference. "I thought there would be some moments early where I thought we wouldn't play to what our potential is, but you have to go through that process and play well enough to do the things and keep looking at yourself and evaluating yourself and keep taking that next step."

Fisher added that in order to stay successful, the Noles just have to keep evolving. Saturday's kickoff with Georgia Tech is slated for 7:00.
