Jordan Travis Legs
When Jordan Travis decides to use his legs, this FSU offense becomes a different animal. That’s what happened in the second half against Duke.
FSU only scored 10 points in the first half and struggled to move the ball as Duke played to avoid the explosive play. However, Jordan Travis began to keep the ball on zone reads, and completely changed the offense.
FSU went from not having success running with the ball with the running backs to breaking off some nice runs in the second half. The field began to open up in the passing game behind Jordan Travis’s willingness to run the ball.
It was frustrating to watch early, particuarly on a key third down play where Jordan Travis could have easily ran for the first down but tried to hit Keon Coleman for a big play downfield that fell incomplete.
For whatever reason, Jordan Travis hasn’t used his legs as much as he has in past years. However, Saturday night, he finished the game with 10 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown. If we see him start doing this more often, I’d bet the offense would be nearly unstoppable.
