The incident that led to Travis’s injury occurred when he awkwardly fell near the midfield after a run, resulting in what appeared to be a severe left ankle injury. The sight of FSU’s standout player being carted off and transported to the hospital was sobering, prompting an outpouring of support from teammates who gathered around him on the field.
At the time of Travis’s departure, which saw the Seminoles behind, Tate Rodemaker Jr. stepped in as quarterback. Despite the setback, Travis had already marked the season with impressive stats, boasting a 64.1% completion rate, 2,734 passing yards, 20 touchdown passes, and seven rushing touchdowns.
Florida State, with an unblemished record, has secured a position in the ACC Championship Game and is on the cusp of its first College Football Playoff berth since 2014. Currently ranked fourth in the College Football Playoff Rankings, the team has its sights set on the upcoming game against their rival Florida, followed by the showdown against Louisville for the conference title.
The Seminoles’ resilience will be tested as they navigate these crucial matchups without their primary quarterback, relying on the depth of their roster and the spirit of unity that has propelled them this far.
