Jordan Travis gives heartfelt response when asked what it means to beat Miami 3 times in a row
Jordan Travis gave a heartfelt response when asked about the meaning behind Florida State’s win over Miami on Saturday night.
For Travis, it was his third consecutive victory over the Hurricanes. He became the first quarterback in program history to win three straight contests vs. Miami.
He acknowledged that beating Miami is “a little bit different” than other teams.
“I love winning football games at the end of the day,” Travis said. “That’s the goal every single week. Obviously going against Miami, it’s a little bit different. The feeling is a little bit different, the emotions are a little bit different.
“It’s my last year too so I’m so happy I’m going out with a win against them boys because I’m not a fan of them at all.”
Travis was also asked about his emotions of playing in this rivalry game given his Florida roots. He brought up memories of watching his brother play in this rivalry as a baseball player for Florida State.
“It’s really big for me, it’s big for my family,” Travis added. “Going to my brother’s baseball games when I was 10 years old. Florida State vs. Miami. And just hearing the fans and what they said to my brother, I mean it always stuck with me. The fans, the fans are not too kind.
“At the end of the day, I’m thankful to be a Florida State Seminole.”
Florida State is 8-0 in ACC play for the first time since 2014. The Noles will have a chance to move to 11-0 next week with a win over North Alabama.
