Travis has a career day as Florida State beats Georgia Tech

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State fumbled at the goal line and another first-quarter drive deep into Georgia Tech territory was halted on downs. However, the Seminoles capitalized on their drives in the second quarter and pulled away to beat Georgia Tech.

Jordan Travis wasn’t sharp at times, but he still completed 23 of 38 passes for a career-best 396 yards and a career-best three touchdowns as Florida State beat the Yellow Jackets 41-16 on Saturday.

“You sit there and there were so many opportunities during that game to really put it down early and play your best,” Florida State coach Mike Norvell said. “I thought there were a lot of great performances.

Travis connected with Johnny Wilson on a 78-yard TD, Lawrance Toafili on a 62-yard TD and Ja’Khi Douglas on a 24-yard TD as the Seminoles (5-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Trey Benson ran 18 times for 111 yards, Toafili had 13 carries for 70 yards and the Seminoles racked up 246 rushing yards, an average of 5.7 yards per carry.
