Jordan Travis bringing some of that bluegrass back to Tallahassee

FSU dominates UNC to add to the Sod Cemetery

This game was easily categorized in the sod game territory because FSU was on the road as a heavy underdog.

How heavy?

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.
