Billy Wiles QB vs. Jordan Travis QB
Billy Wiles‘ performance for the Golden Eagles has been noteworthy. Completing a commendable 75% of his passes from 28 attempts, Wiles chalked up 267 yards. A striking feature in his gameplay is his 9.5 yards per pass attempts, indicating a preference for mid-to-long throws. With 3 touchdowns to his name but countered by an interception and two sacks, Wiles has room for improvement but is undeniably a force in the quarterback position.
On the Seminoles’ side, Jordan Travis has been nothing short of exceptional. His stat sheet boasts a completion percentage of 74.2 from 31 throws, amassing a whopping 342 yards in the process.
