Florida State landed in ESPN’s top 25 power rankings after its dramatic Week 1 win over LSU.

Florida State is now ranked No. 24 on ESPN’s power rankings list. The Seminoles held on to a 24-23 win and walked away with a 2-0 record. It was a win that helped the program from a momentum standpoint and it was needed to help for the rest of the season.

LSU made a late rally against Florida State, but a blocked extra point allowed Florida State to avoid overtime. It’s FSU’s first 2-0 star to a season since 2016.

ESPN’s Alex Scarborough gave analysis on why FSU is now inside the top 25:

“Playing what was ostensibly a road game in New Orleans against LSU, the Seminoles hung tough, particularly quarterback Jordan Travis, who evaded the Tigers’ pass-rush and took a number of shots on the way to an impressive 260 yards and two touchdowns through the air. And the defense and special teams made it an all-around performance, generating four sacks, blocking a pair of kicks and recovering two fumbles in the 24-23 win. While it might have been a little too close for comfort in the end, coach Mike Norvell will take a 1-point win and a 2-0 start to the season:

Travis passed for 260 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win. Florida State’s offense rushed for a total of 132 yards against LSU.

With 2 wins over Duquesne and LSU to start the season, Florida State will have a week off before the 3rd game of the season happens against Louisville on Friday, Sept. 16.
