Mike Norvell was complimentary of the energy and the sharpness that quarterback Jordan Travis is bringing to Florida State in practice this season.

After Tuesday’s practice, Norvell met with reporters and was asked about his star quarterback.

“You feel his urgency,” Norvell said. “I love the way he’s practicing. Yes, he was really good [today]. But we continue to push him to be better than what he’s been. I thought he looked good today.”

Travis is firmly in the Heisman Trophy conversation as the college football season moves toward Week 6. He’s thrown for 1,028 yards, 10 touchdowns and just 1 interception so far this season.

But more importantly, Travis guided FSU to a pair of signature wins during the month of September over LSU and Clemson. His “urgency”, as Norvell describes it, is a big reason for the Noles’ success.

Florida State will now turn its attention to Virginia Tech, who is coming off of its best game of the year in Week 5. The Hokies upset Pittsburgh 38-21 last weekend behind 5 total touchdowns from Kyron Drones.

Florida State and Virginia Tech will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
