FSU football moved to (11-0, 8-0 ACC) with its 58-13 blowout win over the North Alabama Lions Saturday night. A night that was supposed to be an easy win in preparation for the Florida Gators became anything but that early on.
The FSU offense stalled its first couple of possessions, and North Alabama had a successful fake punt that went for 64 yards to set up their first touchdown score.
North Alabama used a lot of trickery on their third possession to go 80-yards, scoring on another touchdown pass, but the extra-point was blocked by Jared Verse.
A Renerdo Green interception got nullifed by an offsides penalty on that drive. To make matters worse, FSU starting quarterback Jordan Travis left the game with an injury to his left leg.
I highly doubt we’ll see Jordan Travis playing in an FSU uniform again, but we’ll have to wait and find out what the injury is. It was a sad scene, with the game being his final game inside Doak Campbell Stadium.
However, his teammates rallied around him and seemed to pull it together and play for him as the game went on. FSU is a different team without Jordan Travis at quarterback.
He brings tons of game experience, incredible knowledge of the FSU offense, dual-threat ability, and knows what checks to make at the line of scrimmage.
However, there’s a ton of talent on this team. Let’s look at the five major takeaways from the game.
