No. 4 Florida State Football defeated No. 15 Louisville 16-6 on Saturday night in Charlotte and won the ACC Championship.

Seminoles hope this result will be enough to land them a spot in the College Football Playoff.

In a postgame news conference Mike Norvell, Florida State coach, said it showed the team have what it takes to win.

Florida won the match without veteran starter Jordan Travis; they even played without backup Tate Rodemaker due to a concussion.

Brock Glenn, the third-string quarterback, got the start and finished the match with 8-of-21 for 55 yards.

It was the second-fewest in a conference championship win in the last 20 seasons, though.

However, Florida State Football successfully overcame injuries to win their first ACC title since 2014.

It was a monumental moment for coach Novell who took over the team at rock bottom in 2020 and built it from scratch. They even beat a top-15 team with a freshman quarterback.

Jim Phillips, the ACC commissioner, also praised Florida State Football as they finished the regular season undefeated and historically won the ACC football championship.

After all, the Seminoles’ offense struggled to move the ball on Saturday.

Their most effective play came from the Wildcat run with running back Lawrence Toafili who finished the game with a game-high 118 yards.
