FSU to start its third different QB vs. No. 5 Notre Dame
Florida State announced redshirt sophomore quarterback Jordan Travis will get the nod this Saturday against No. 5 Notre Dame.
Travis will be the team’s third different starting quarterback this season.
Travis was called on last week to rally the Seminoles (1-2) past FCS Jacksonville State. With Florida State trailing 14-0, Travis came on for struggling freshman Tate Rodemaker and led the Seminoles to five straight touchdown drives in the 41-24 win.
Travis threw for 210 yards and a touchdown against the Gamecocks. Rodemaker had supplanted season starter James Blackman, benched during the team’s 52-10 blowout loss to Miami.
“Jordan, through that performance and the work that he’s put in, has established himself for the start this week and the opportunity to go out there and play the game the way he’s capable of playing,” Florida State coach Mike Norvell said Monday. “I’m excited about him being able to assume that role this week and go make the most of it.”
Saturday’s game is in South Bend, Ind.
