Florida State Seminoles Game Notes
Florida State redshirt freshman QB Jordan Travis (leg) is expected to play Saturday at Louisville. Travis (6'3/195) led the Seminoles to a dramatic 31-28 victory over North Carolina, thanks largely to the efforts of Travis. He was clearly hobbled in the contest, but managed to gut it out to finish the game. HC Mike Norvell indicated Travis was sore after the game but it shouldn't affect his availability this Saturday when Florida State travels to play Louisville.
Louisville Cardinals Game Notes
Louisville redshirt junior QB Malik Cunningham completed 16-of-18 passes for 134 yards with a touchdown in a 12-7 loss to Notre Dame on Saturday. Cunningham also had 48 yards on seven carries. He briefly left the game after experiencing cramps in his arm and also with a leg injury, but was able to return. The completion percentage was solid, but outside of a long pass to Javian Hawkins on a wheel route where Notre Dame broke coverage, he was not able to get the ball down field. Louisville was considered a sleeper team coming into the season, but they've lost four straight and now sit at 1-4. Cunningham (6'1/200) will be back under center next Saturday against Florida State.
