Jordan Travis becomes 11th quarterback in FSU history to throw for over 3000 yards

Another accolade on the Florida State quarterback’s resume

Charles Mays/Tomahawk Nation

Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jordan Travis, already having etched his name in the program’s record books in several areas, has added another accolade to his resume.

Against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cheez-It Bowl, Travis became just the 11th quarterback in Florida State football history to throw for over 3,000 yards in a season.

It’s the first time since Deondre Francois in 2016 a Florida State quarterback has reached the mark.

Travis put on one of the more impressive passing performances in Florida State history in the win, putting up 418 yards on the day to earn Cheez-It Bowl MVP honors.

“We’re not done yet,” he said after the game. “This is just the beginning. We have another chapter. This is the end of the chapter of this year, but we still have a lot, a lot to do. I’ve got a lot of plans for next year and a lot of goals, and I can’t wait.”

Some notes, via FSU Sports Info:
