North Carolina lost its first game at home this season.
With his team down 10-0 in the second quarter, Travis threw his first touchdown pass to Malik McClain for five yards.
On Florida State’s next possession, Travis used play action to get some space, paused for a moment, then took off over left tackle and scored on a 53-yard run.
After the Seminoles got the ball back via interception, Travis found Ontaria Wilson for the first of two touchdown connections, a 32-yard touchdown for a 21-10 lead with 53 seconds left in the half.
The Tar Heels made it a four-point game in the third quarter after a defensive stand and a six-play, 70-yard drive that ended in quarterback Sam Howell’s 21-yard TD pass to Kamari Morales.
But Florida State, in winning its second straight game, scored two unanswered touchdowns and put the game away.
A 44-yard completion from Travis to Keyshawn Helton, plus a 15-yard roughing-the-passer penalty against North Carolina, set up a one-yard scoring run for Travis. Then the Seminoles drove 83 yards, with Travis finding Wilson for a six-yard touchdown with 1:02 left in the third quarter.
Florida State’s defense stopped North Carolina (3-3, 2-3) on downs early in the fourth quarter at the Seminoles’ 5-yard line.
Howell threw for 203 yards and two touchdowns, surpassing Darian Durant for second place in all-time passing yards in program history. His streak of four straight 300-yard games came to an end.
Howell had 11 carries for 108 yards and Josh Downs caught nine passes for 121 yards, including a touchdown.
The Tar Heels put together a lengthy drive in the fourth quarter, but it consumed far too much game clock despite Ty Chandler’s two-yard touchdown run and the trick-play two-point conversion with 2:47 left in the game.
