No. 13 Florida State Seminoles, playing in the program’s first bowl game since 2016, has seemingly found its identity after navigating a difficult stretch in head coach Mike Norvell’s first and second seasons. That identity, built on responding to adversity, was tested against an out-of-conference opponent in the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cheez-It Bowl.
It wasn’t an easy victory for the Noles, but they were able to escape Orlando with their 10th win of the season — the best for the program since 2016. Florida State defeated the Sooners 35-32 behind incredible performances from Jordan Travis and Johnny Wilson.
After the game, Norvell, Jordan Travis, Jared Verse, Treshaun Ward, and Jammie Robinson spoke on the team’s performance, what it meant as a reflection of the Seminoles’ season and what it means for Florida State going forward.
