Sportsman of the Week Ending 9/3/2023

Another exciting opening weekend of college football with upsets and surprises and new teams in the mix.  But two traditional powers squared off on Sunday night as Louisiana State University faced off against Florida State University in an SEC / ACC showdown of top ranked teams.  And one team emerged by a lot.  Unlike last year when the same two teams played sloppy.  Both looked better.  But Florida State QB Jordan Travis was the unmistakable force that checkmated the Tigers of the Bayou.  Trailing at halftime, Travis would not waver and surgically dismantled LSU over the second half and made it a runaway.  Overall, Travis only missed 8 passes in 31 throws against what was expected to be a fast and tough defense.  Four of the 23 completions were touchdowns.  And he ran for another.  Travis could not be stopped in what was expected to be their toughest early matchup.  Win checked.  FSU is now in position for a big ACC push and maybe a playoff.  Jordan Travis is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
