CFB Twitter goes wild for McKenzie Milton's return in FSU-Notre Dame game
Football fans everywhere are thrilled to see McKenzie Milton back in a college football game.
Two years after his gruesome injury, Milton was back in action. The former UCF quarterback came in off the bench for Florida State when Seminole starter Jordan Travis left the game.
Milton showed no signs of rust, leading FSU down the field on a scoring drive that cut Notre Dame’s lead to 38-35 in the fourth quarter.

McKenzie Milton completely blew out his knee November 23rd, 2018.
He was never supposed to play again, but today, 1,017 days later he enters the game as the Florida State QB & immediately leads his team to a touchdown.
