Tallahassee, FL (WTXL) -- Despite scoring just 7 points in the first half the Florida State offense rebounded to top Louisville 41-21. jimbo fisher told his team they are trying to play at an elite level and although Louisville has a strong defense the Noles don't realize there on talent level.   Here Coach Fisher's initial thoughts on Saturday's win:

"I think you saw a tale of two halves in my opinion. I think you saw what a team can do in the first half when it's not totally focused or it presses itself, and obviously focus was the issue."  Fisher said.  I think it just pressed, wants to go out and show how it plays well so bad. In the second half when the team relaxes, it played up to its capability, and still have it. We had so many motion penalties, giving up 3rd and longs, not winning the field position battles, putting ourselves behind the 8‐ball. We did that against a very good football team. That front seven on defense is really good. Skill guys on offense, quarterback, we have to get better. I mean, I'm excited how wecompeted in the game. I'm excited we had the poise to come back, but I'm not happy,  we've got to learn to put those things away. But we're getting there."  

Trailing 7-6 at the half Cook, opened the the 3rd quarter with a 54 yard touchdown.  That sparked the Noles to put up 35 points in the second half.  Everett Golson finished the game with three touchdowns and 372 yards passing.
