Jordan Travis carted off the field for Florida State vs. North Alabama

The worst possible injury for the Seminoles happens during their dream undefeated season.

Quarterback Jordan Travis of the Florida State Seminoles looks to pass during the game against the Miami Hurricanes at Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium on November 11, 2023 in Tallahassee, Florida.

Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis was carted off the field in the first quarter of the Seminoles’ game against North Alabama on Saturday. He sustained a severe leg injury.

Travis was in Heisman talks throughout the 2023 season as he led Florida State to a 10-0 record coming into Week 12. A sixth-year senior, he has been in Tallahassee since 2018, playing one year at Louisville before transferring.

In 2023 Travis passed for 20 touchdowns and rushed for seven scores. The West Palm Beach native threw just two interceptions as he led the Seminoles to wins over Duke, LSU, Clemson, and Miami so far this season.

The injury is pretty gruesome, so you might not want to watch below.

Travis appears to have broken his leg or ankle. His backup, who will likely play the remainder of the game against North Alabama, is Tate Rodemaker. The redshirt junior has passed for three TDs this season, and has 22 career games in Tallahassee, including several starts before being relegated to the bench earlier in his career.

The Seminoles play the Florida Gators next week, and have clinched their ticket to the ACC Championship, where they will face the Louisville Cardinals on December 2 in Charlotte.
