09 Oct Down Go The Heels! Football Gets 2nd Straight Win
“Our goal every Saturday is to go out and get a win,” said Travis. “The boys did it today; they worked pretty hard all week. They came out with a great mindset the whole week. The O-Line worked really hard today; really, really hard. They kept me upright and I’m very thankful for that. The running backs ran hard, the receivers made great plays and the defense came up big.”
“Tonight we played winning football,” said Norvell. “We got better tonight.”
The Seminoles, who ran only 54 offensive plays, were an efficient seven-of-10 on third down conversions and were a perfect three-of-three scoring touchdowns in the red zone.
“I thought Jordan did an extraordinary job,” said Norvell. “Our entire team … that’s an extremely explosive offense that we played against. I thought we were able to keep them in check for the most part. These guys, the way that they’re invested, the things that they are pouring into this program, I’m just so very proud of them.”
North Carolina led 10-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Tar Heels opened the scoring on a 51-yard field goal by Grayson Atkins. The home team increased their lead to 10-0 on a 33-yard scoring pass from quarterback Sam Howell to Josh Downs.
Travis got the Seminoles on the scoreboard as he engineered a 12-play, 59-yard touchdown scoring drive to bring Florida State within 10-7. He found Malik McClain for the first receiving touchdown of his FSU career. Travis and the offense mounted a well-scripted drive with eight rushes for 38 yards and four completed passes for 21 yards.
