Florida State wins ACC championship with third-string quarterback
No. 4 Florida State emerged victorious in the ACC championship, claiming a 16-6 win over Louisville. Coach Mike Norvell believes his team more than deserves a spot in the College Football Playoff, even with injuries sidelining their top two quarterbacks.
Despite playing behind third-string quarterback Brock Glenn, who had modest passing yardage, Florida State secured its first ACC title since 2014, marking a triumphant moment for Norvell and the entire team, considering the program’s struggles in recent years.
The victory was a testament to the effort and resilience of the entire team, especially since starting quarterback Jordan Travis was out for the season due to injury. Even without Travis, Florida State still managed to beat a top-15 team in the championship.
ACC commissioner Jim Phillips voiced his confidence in the playoff committee recognizing Florida State’s undefeated regular season and its historic win in the ACC championship game. The Seminoles’ dominant defense also made a strong impression by sacking Louisville’s quarterback seven times and recording 14 tackles for loss.
The question now is whether the selection committee will acknowledge Florida State’s remarkable 13-0 record and grant the team a spot in the playoff. Defensive end Jared Verse expressed unwavering confidence in his team’s ability to compete with any playoff opponent, highlighting the team’s fierce determination and belief in its own capabilities.
Despite the absence of key players, Florida State has proven its worthiness to be included in the playoff. Now, the team awaits the committee’s decision, hopeful that its remarkable season and championship win will not go unnoticed.
