The Florida State Seminoles (1-4, 1-2) defeated the Syracuse Orange (3-2, 0-1) 33-30 on Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee.
Florida State and Syracuse were back and forth throughout the first half, ending with Florida State taking a 16-13 lead. The Seminoles tried to create some separation, taking a 30-20 lead early in the fourth quarter, but Syracuse came back to tie the game 30-30 with 5:17 to go. It would be Ryan Fitzgerald hitting a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give the Seminoles their first win of the 2021 season.
Senior quaterback Jordan Travis went 22-for-32 with 131 yards passing, with two touchdowns and one interception. He also was the Seminoles leading rusher with 113 yards.
