Florida State coach Mike Norvell: 'Going to be monumental' for us to build off win vs. No. 5 UNC


Three weeks ago, Florida State coach Mike Norvell sat alone at home watching his team lose in embarrassing fashion to rival Miami in yet another dispiriting loss for a program searching for a way to turn a corner.


Florida State entered the game as a double-digit home underdog, in large part because of its poor performance to open the season.


All of that would have been hard to imagine at the end of September, when Norvell missed the Miami game because of a positive coronavirus test and the Seminoles unraveled in front of a national television audience.


It's so special because since Dec. 8, the first time I walked into that meeting room with my team and this group, every moment we tried to grow and improve, believing in what was coming.


"It was the greatest feeling I've ever felt in my life seeing the defense come up big like that," Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis said.


Norvell sees plenty to clean up, including an inability to score in the second half, and too many undisciplined penalties that nearly cost them the game.
