TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Saturday's spring game for Florida State marks the culmination of 15 days of practice as the team hit the gridiron for the first time in the calendar year.

Coming off of a five-win season, FSU is looking to improve in all aspects of their game.

As for what the biggest improvement is for the garnet and gold, if Noles defensive tackle Marvin Wilson is to be believed, it'll be the front five of FSU's offensive line.

"Offensive line has gotten tremendously better over the spring since the fall," Wilson said. "I couldn't be any happier, especially for those guys that came and worked their butts off. I can't wait for this weekend to show everybody how much improvement they have made."

While Wilson says the offensive line improvement will be apparent, FSU fans - when polled by WCTV - say that's what they hope they see the most improvement from, with 61% of respondents saying they want better results up front.

But, other things are on the minds of FSU fans as well.

22 percent are hoping to see the Seminoles play a cleaner style of football after leading FBS in penalties in 2018, averaging nine per game.

11 percent say they are excited to see the progression of James Blackman under center, as he seems to be in line to be QB1 come the start of the 2019 campaign, while six percent are looking forward to how Kendal Briles' playcalling looks, as limited a look as it might be.

The FSU Spring Game kicks off at 4 p.m. Saturday, April 6. For tickets and more information, visit seminoles.com.
