Florida State needed extra time to snap its 7-game losing skid against Clemson. Also, the team required Jordan Travis’ heroics in overtime to earn the victory over its rival.
In overtime, Keon Coleman caught a 24-yard touchdown throw from Travis, and the Seminoles held on defense to beat Clemson 31-24 and end a seven-game losing run. The victory sparked a decade-long party in Death Valley.
Florida State is no longer the dominant Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) program. Clemson has won seven of the previous eight conference championships and the 2016 and 2018 national championships. It appears the Seminoles are again in a position to take the lead.
Seminoles Snapped 7-Game Losing Skid
The Seminoles (4–0, 2-0 ACC) won their first game over Clemson (2–2, 0-2) in overtime since 2014. Travis accounted for four touchdowns, three passing, and one rushing. With 82 career touchdowns, he has surpassed Chris Weinke as the all-time leader in scoring for the program.
With 31 seconds remaining in the third quarter, FSU linebacker Kalen DeLoach recovered a fumble by Cade Klubnik and ran it back 56 yards for a touchdown to knot the score at 24.
Twice in the first half, Florida State fell by ten points. With 1:47 remaining in the game, Clemson had a golden opportunity to grab the lead. Still, a 29-yard field goal attempt was missed wide left by Jonathan Weitz, a graduate student who left the team before the season but returned this week after the Tigers experienced troubles in the kicking game.
Travis and the Seminoles would not give up if they had a second opportunity. On the first extra possession, Travis lofted a high-arching ball that Coleman snagged in stride, silencing the rowdy Death Valley crowd.
Klubnik’s fourth-and-2 throw was incomplete, preventing a first down for Clemson, and Florida State players raced to celebrate on the field where their team had not won since 2013. Knowing about teams’ history is vital when you want to open an online sports betting business.
