It was an interesting week for the Seminole faithful. From soccer games to soccer, Noles among the pros and the upcoming basketball season, there has been a little something for everyone in the world of FSU sports.
The Florida State Seminoles traveled to Chapel Hill last Saturday as heavy underdogs (three scores at one time) for the first time since 2009, when quarterback Christian Ponder led them to a win from 30-27 at Kenan Stadium. Lightning appeared to strike twice with quarterback Jordan Travis at the helm and the tribe added some well-deserved landscaping to their turf graveyard, returning home after a 35-25 road win.
Although the ball-throwing botanist had the honor of bringing home some turf from Caroline, defensive back Jarrian Jones had the opportunity on Saturday to “smash the rock.”
