After taking a 17-0 lead, Miami scored 28 of the game’s next 31 points before the Seminoles found their stride late in the fourth quarter. Florida State scored 11 points in the final 4:43 of the game to secure the comeback victory.
Travis was the star of the show after missing last week’s game due to injury. He completed 18-of-26 passes for 274 yards and added 2 rushing touchdowns. He also completed a crucial 4th and 14 pass in the game’s final minute to set up the game-winning touchdown.

On the other side, this loss spoils Miami’s run at the ACC Coastal title. The Hurricanes are now 5-5 and have been eliminated from division title contention.
