Jordan Travis lit up the night, running a triple option offense which led the Florida State Seminoles to a 41-24 win over the Jacksonville State Gamecocks.

Seminoles fans are all too familiar, having seen Kelly’s protege Mark Helfrich and his charge Marcus Mariota run a similar offense in the Ducks’ 2014 Rose Bowl win over FSU.
