Travis sparks late rally as Florida State beats Miami 31-28 πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯


Florida State delivered a comeback that belongs among the great down-to-the-wire finishes in the history of the rivalry with Miami. And Mike Norvell has a signature win to continue building the Seminoles’ foundation.

Jordan Travis completed a fourth-and-14 pass to Andrew Parchment and two plays later ran it in from 1 yard out with 26 seconds to go as Florida State defeated Miami 31-28 on Saturday.

Trailing 28-23 and taking over at the Seminoles’ 20-yard line, Travis dropped back and connected with Ja’Khi Douglas on a 59-yard catch-and-run. After two incompletions and a false start, Travis connected with Parchment on the 24-yard reception to the goal line.

β€œWow, what a game,” Norvell said. β€œSo proud of our team. The coaches, everybody involved in the program. The work, the investment, responding to adversity. The way that we work. Everything that we do within our program is there to prepare you for a moment like that. … It’s been a challenging road. We’ve had some real ups and downs. But these kids, they’ve just continued to work, they’ve continued to believe.”

Florida State (4-6, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) has had a roller-coaster season, beginning 0-4 before winning three straight and then dropping two in a row. But now the Seminoles have picked up their first victory over a rival β€” Miami, Florida or Clemson β€” since a Nov. 25, 2017 win over the Gators.

Travis completed 18 of 26 passes for a career-high 274 yards and he ran 22 times for 62 yards and two touchdowns for Florida State.

A year after Miami routed FSU 52-10, in what was the second game of the Norvell Era but also one he missed on the road after testing positive for COVID-19, the Seminoles showed just how much progress they have made.
