This game was easily categorized in the sod game territory because FSU was on the road as a heavy underdog.
When FSU kicked off at 3:30 in Chapel Hill they were a 17.5 point underdog. Three hours later and Florida State is coming back to Tallahassee with a sod victory after dominating North Carolina to the tune of a 35-25 victory that was closer on the scoreboard than it felt in the second half.
Jordan Travis was immaculate; the two-headed monster of Jashaun Corbin & Treshaun Ward broke multiple tackles, and the receiver made clutch catch after clutch catch including two Ontaria Wilson TDs.
On defense Jarrian Jones had his best day as a Seminole and the secondary overall put the clamps on North Carolina’s passing attack led by likely first-round draft pick QB Sam Howell.
A clean game, a physically dominating game and that’s why FSU is adding UNC to the Sod Cemetery today. FSU spent all day in the endzone it only makes sense that they take a little of that bluegrass back home with them.
