In FSU’s final drive of the first quarter, quarterback Jordan Travis was taken down at the North Alabama 49-yard line on a 16-yard keep and would not get up.
Upon video replay, it was apparent that Travis had suffered a severe injury to his left leg.
He’d end up getting carted off the field and into an ambulance, leaving the game. Both the FSU and North Alabama sidelines surrounded Travis when he was being lifted onto the cart.
