The latest rendition of one of the most storied rivalries in college football took place on Friday between the Florida State Seminoles and the Florida Gators. There has been ton of excellent play on both sides, but Seminoles starting quarterback Jordan Travis has been the star of the show.
Travis has torched the Gators defense on the ground, showing off some supreme elusiveness and scrambling ability throughout the game.
Travis produced some crazy highlights. Arguably the best of those came on a 29-yard touchdown run after it looked certain that he’d be sacked for a big loss.

He pulled off a very similar play on a key third-down conversion in the third quarter, evading pressure and running all the way down to the one-yard line.

Jordan Travis is sick. If you haven’t watched him I suggest you turn on the Florida St game. He is literally a one man wrecking crew.

His performance in the game has put Travis in some rarified air at Florida State, breaking the top 10 in both passing and rushing touchdowns at the program.
He is the only player to become top 10 in both categories, speaking to his excellence as a rusher.
It is very clear that Jordan Travis has been a difference maker at Florida State this year. The program has already solidified their first winning season since 2017, and much of that is due to his impressive performance.
