NCAA Football: Florida State at North Carolina James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State football picked up their second straight win with a 35-25 win at North Carolina. The road win was the first of the Mike Norvell era at Florida State. After the game, quarterback Jordan Travis was chosen as the sod captain. Travis was chosen after a dynamic performance that led the Seminoles to the upset of the Tar Heels. Travis was 11-13 for 145 yards and three touchdowns in the air. He also set a career high with 121 rushing yards. After the win, Travis spoke to the media. Here’s some of what the QB had to say after the game:

On the importance of the win: “It means everything. Our goal every Saturday is to go out and get a win. We came out with a great mindset the whole week.”

On how they came back from early deficit: “Coach Norvell he works us very hard in the offseason. Always talks about responding, and the boys came out today and responded.”

On the offensive line: “I’m so happy. Words can’t describe how happy I am for them. Those guys have kept their heads down and work. Seeing them come off the field with a smile on their face means the world to me.”

On the passing game opening up: “Receivers came up big today. It keeps the defense honest. The receivers made great plays.”

On being the sod captain: “It’s a blessing from the man upstairs. I’m so thankful.”

On how this team has turned it around: “Confidence. Confidence is one of the biggest things in football.”

“I’m so blessed to be part of this Florida State football team.”
