'Noles Pummel Panthers, 41-13, in Jaboo's Debut.

Jameis Winston's first start at quarterback for Florida State is a memorable one as the No. 11/12 Seminoles open 2013 with a win at Pittsburgh.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

PITTSBURGH, PA -- He'd thrown fastballs in the 90s and runners out at third base from right field. He'd thrown a touchdown on his first toss of the 2013 spring game and he'd thrown a football up and over a fraternity house. He'd even joked with reporters and debuted a flawless MC Hammer impersonation.

But there was one thing Jameis Winston hadn't done in a whirlwind, hype-producing eight months: Florida State's redshirt freshman quarterback hadn't played a single snap of college football. So when the nation turned its collective gaze to ESPN's Labor Day broadcast of No. 11/12 FSU's season-opening game at Pittsburgh Monday night, the game's central theme was crystal clear.

Can the player they call "Jaboo" live up to the hype?

If the box score from the Seminoles' (1-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) 41-13 thrashing of new league member Pitt (0-1, 0-1) is any indication, Winston is more than capable of handling the pressures of his growing fame and expectations. And then some.

In perhaps greatest debut by a 'Noles quarterback ever, Winston went 25-of-27 for 356 yards with four passing touchdowns and one rushing score. His 92.6-percent completion percentage was enough to set the school record, breaking the 87.5-percent mark that Danny Kanell unleashed on NC State back in 1995.

"It's one ballgame guys," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "He played one game. That's it. But he did a great job. As long as he keeps the process in mind and keeps working with great habits, everything's going to be fine, and that's what he has to do. It's not about age. It's about habits. If you have good work habits, you get results if you have ability."

Not to be overlooked was an FSU offense that saw Nick O'Leary match his 2012 full-season total with three touchdown receptions and become the first Seminoles tight end to haul in more than one score in a single game since Marvin Pearsall in 1994.

Rashad Greene grabbed eight catches for 126 yards and one score and Kelvin Benjamin added 73 yards on five catches. Kenny Shaw nearly hit triple digits with his 94 yards on four catches and tailbacks James Wilder, Jr. and Devonta Freeman combined for 110 yards on 19 carries.

The Seminoles racked up 533 yards of total offense on 8.5 yards per play. With Winston effortlessly running Fisher's pro-style offense, the 'Noles were 7-of-11 on third down.

"I've got a veteran offensive line and I've got receivers that are going to get open, and I've got 'backs that are going to block," Winston told ESPN's Samantha Ponder moments after his first win. "... I am not even thinking about [the hype] right now. It's a process and we've got to keep doing it and keep winning.

"That's the most important thing and I'm just happy to celebrate this with my dad and my family and the FSU 'Noles."

Defensively, the Jeremy Pruitt-led new-look 'Noles bent early but they didn't break. Despite a handful of losses in personnel to the NFL Draft and an off-season overhaul in defensive schemes, FSU allowed just 297 yards and forced Pittsburgh quarterback Tom Savage into two turnovers -- one by true freshman starting cornerback Jalen Ramsey and another by senior safety Terrence Brooks.

The Seminoles allowed an 80-yard drive and score to start the game, but gave up just 217 yards and six points over the next 49:10 of game action -- and 52 of those yards came on a garbage-time bomb from Savage to star receiver Devin Street. Savage finished 15-of-28 for 201 yards and Street posted 141 yards on six catches.

Lamarcus Joyner had a role in the pressure Savage faced all night, as the senior registered two sacks off the cornerback blitz and led the team with nine tackles. Linebackers Telvin Smith and Christian Jones each had eight tackles and Tyler Hunter had five. Brooks, Ramsey and Timmy Jernigan notched four tackles of their own.

Pitt wasted little time introducing itself to the ACC as Savage orchestrated that nine-play drive on the first series that concluded with a four-yard touchdown pass to Manasseh Garner and sent the 65,000-fans sellout crowd at Heinz Field into a frenzy.

The Winston era then officially began with back-to-back completions to Benjamin and Shaw for a combined 33 yards. But the drive stalled after Benjamin's toss sweep failed to convert on 3rd-and-1.

After Cason Beatty's first punt of the season, Pittsburgh's ensuing drive fared much worse. With 'Noles defensive line pressure in his face, Savage threw a pass right into Ramsey's waiting hands. Two plays later, Winston tossed the first touchdown of his career on a beautifully thrown 24-yard pass to O'Leary in the endzone.

Florida State led the nation in forced three-and-outs a season ago and on the next drive registered its first of the young 2013 campaign. Winston was again sharp on FSU's resulting drive, connecting on long passes to Shaw and Benjamin before a 15-yard Wilder, Jr. run to the Panthers' four yard-line.

A perfectly executed play-action pass with defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel in as a lead blocker then resulted in another Winston-O'Leary touchdown connection -- this time a two-yard score for a 14-7 FSU lead with 13:41 left in the second quarter.

Pittsburgh then trimmed that one-touchdown deficit to 14-10 on a short field goal moments after Brooks' nearly snared an endzone interception.

But a 14-play, 78-yard drive by the Winston-led offense halted any sort of potential Panthers comeback. The drive concluded with WInston's first career rushing touchdown, a five-yard scamper with 2:13 remaining in the first half. And the 'Noles wanted more.

Brooks made up for his dropped interception earlier by making a diving takeaway for Savage's second interception on the night. Wasting little time, Winston led the 'Noles to pay dirt once again. Highlighted by a 36-yard Greene catch on 1st-and-30, the three-play, 41-yard drive ended with Greene's own 23-yard reception.

It won't get the same publicity as Winston's Monday-might performance, but fellow redshirt freshman Roberto Aguayo then saved a potential Pittsburgh score on the resulting kickoff a few moments later. His tackle halted what would have likely been a long kickoff return by Tyler Boyd -- instead, the 'Noles took a 28-10 lead into the break.

Aguayo then hit 22- and 28-yard field goals in the third quarter and Winston capped off the night with a 10-yard touchdown toss to O'Leary with 9:32 left in the game.

"I wasn't surprised," Joyner said about Winston's performance. "I told him pregame you go against the best every day ... and the way you rip us apart sometimes in scrimmages, we know you can do it against anyone in the nation."

Winston was later replaced by redshirt Jacob Coker, who finished 2-0f-2 for 21 yards.

FSU Scores 59 Unanswered in 62-7 Nevada Rout.

Jameis Winston completes all 13 of his final passes, Karlos Williams has a memorable debut at tailback and the No. 10/9 'Noles defense shuts down the Wolf Pack Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- No. 10/9 Florida State's lopsided 62-7 victory over Nevada Saturday was more than just the team's second tally in the win column this season.

The Seminoles' (2-0) triumphant 2013 home opener also provided answers to some key offensive questions moving forward.

With a record-breaking debut in his rearview, Jameis Winston, a redshirt freshman quarterback that has taken college football by storm, had yet to show what he could do when things weren't going right. Against Pitt in the 'Noles' season opener, Winston had just two incompletions and, other than briefly playing from behind at the very beginning of the game, was never put in position to show his mental makeup in the face of adversity.

Against the Wolf Pack (1-2), he got that chance.

After throwing his first career interception and more incompletions in the first quarter at Doak Campbell Stadium than he did in all four against the Panthers, Winston found his team trailing 7-3 in the second quarter in front of an unhappy crowd. As he came to the sideline, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher had a simple message for his young pupil.

"Go higher," Winston said. "Adversity is here; how are you going to respond?"

A final stat-line of 15-of-18 for 214 yards and three total touchdowns as the 'Noles scored 59 unanswered points means that Winston responded by completing all 13 of his final passes for 184 yards following Fisher's brief words of advice.

"Adversity, you can't live on that," Winston said. "You've got to keep going."

And keep going he did. Aided by his playmaking wide receivers, a stable of capable tailbacks and the blocking up front, Winston connected on a pair of 24-yard touchdown passes to Kenny Shaw and Rashad Greene in the second quarter that put the Seminoles ahead for good.

His pinpoint pass to Christian Green moments after the Shaw touchdown grab that set up Greene's score was the type of throw that won't soon be forgotten. And his 10-yard scamper to pay dirt on the heels of a third-quarter Tyler Hunter interception further his proved the threat his poses as as a passer and runner.

In total, FSU's offense racked up 617 yards at a clip of 9.8 yards per play while the defense allowed just 214 yards at 3.5 yards per Nevada snap.

On the ground, juniors Karlos Williams and Devonta Freeman ran for 110 and 109 yards, respectively, with one score each while true freshmen Ryan Green added 78 late-game yards and one touchdown and fellow rookie Freddie Stevenson posted one more running score. Shaw added 94 yards and his touchdown grab and Greene and Kelvin Benjamin combined for 76 yards and a touchdown.

On the other side of the ball, Terrance Brooks and Lamarcus Joyner both had six tackles as 24 different defenders registered stops.

"We dealt with adversity very well, we adjusted on the sideline well," Fisher said. "... I loved the way our players responded. A lot of young guys touched the ball tonight. Defensively a lot of guys got in the game and made plays."

Including Williams, who made news during FSU's bye week thanks to a position switch from safety to running back.

While Winston's ability to handle adversity was the prevailing question entering the showdown with the Wolf Pack, Williams' role as a runner was the other. But after spending two seasons as a backup safety before being added to a depth chart that already featured proven players in Freeman and James Wilder, Jr., Williams wasted little time in showing just what he brings to the tailback rotation: speed, size and explosion.

Oh, and the ability to score from anywhere on the field.

Williams' first carry went for 65 yards and touchdown on a sweep to the right that he had been working on all week at practice.

"Kelvin [Benjamin] and Rashad [Greene] looked at me and said, 'When you catch the ball, bro, just ride. Just run. Just run, run, run, run, run. Don't look back, don't cut, don't shake. Get the ball, head to the sideline and just run,'" Williams said. "And I did exactly what they told me and it led me to a touchdown."

Added Fisher: "[Williams] is a talented cat, now. He's very dynamic with the ball. He's big, strong and explosive [and] he's natural. When he gets space he can hit home runs and he's hard to tackle because he's a big, physical guy."

Noles Run Over Wildcats, 54-6.

No. 8/8 Florida State moves to 3-0 overall with ACC play looming, after blasting Bethune-Cookman at home Saturday night.

By: BrandonMellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Telvin Smith intercepted a pass and dashed 68 yards for the touchdown on the game's first drive and No. 8/8 Florida State sprinted past Bethun=e-Cookman 54-6 Saturday night at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Now, the 'Noles (3-0) turn their attention to the Atlantic Coast Conference race.

FSU heads to Boston College next weekend having accomplished exactly what it wanted to accomplish against the FCS-level Wildcats (3-1): the Seminoles got to rest some starters, get one game stronger and give plenty of valuable snaps to its stacked roster of talented youngsters.

"We've got a lot of room to grow but we did the things we had to do," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "Now we get back to our conference on the road and need to clean a lot of things up but we're getting to where we need to be."

Unlike the first two games of his career, FSU quarterback Jameis Winston didn't fill up the box score with eye-popping numbers in the win. But the young signal caller did make some magic on Bobby Bowden Field.

Winston only played until the 8:13 mark of the third quarter, completing 10-of-19 passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns -- all career lows. Don't the numbers fool you, though. Winston had two potential touchdown tosses dropped and he unleashed this 11-yard touchdown throw to Kelvin Benjamin that won't soon be forgotten.

Winston admitted that the memorable play shouldn't have ever happened; he should have hit Chad Abram in the flat or Nick O'Leary on a hot route. But you can't take those points off the board and that play off the ESPN highlight reels.

"I should have sighted them out and we should have ran one of our sights on the backside," Winston said. "I was like, 'Oh man, I messed up. Now I gotta do something so I at least can throw a touchdown while I get yelled at in the film room.'"

Winston may have to answer to Fisher even on scoring plays, but his performance was enough to impress B-CU coach Brian Jenkins.

"You are looking at a future Heisman Trophy winner," Jenkins said. "I don't know if there's a better quarterback in the country."

Rashad Greene also grabbed a 19-yard touchdown catch from Winston. Greene finished with 44 yards receiving on four catches while Kenny Shaw had four catches of his own for 89 yards. Levonte Whitfield added one catch for 42 yards from backup Jacob Coker, who played a series with the first-team offense in the second half and threw for 78 total yards on 3-of-6 passing.

Of FSU's 492 total yards, 266 of them came on the ground.

Devonta Freeman registered his second 100-yard game in a row and the sixth of his career as his 10 total rushes went for 112 yards and one touchdown. Through three games as the team's leading rusher, Freeman is averaging 9.5 yards per carry and has not lost yardage on any run.

"I am very pleased with Devonta," Fisher said. "I thought he had a great game."

The other members of the 'Noles' talented tailback trio -- James Wilder, Jr. and Karlos Williams also left their mark. Wilder, Jr. finished with 56 yards on just eight carries with a touchdown run and Williams showed the same flash in the backfield as he did in his first game at the position last weekend after his switch from safety.

Williams played in the second half only but scored twice on the ground and ran for 83 yards on nine carries. After the game, Fisher said that Williams is progressing so well on offense that he will start getting earlier carries and more opportunities.

Williams also laid out a Wildcats returner on special teams, showing he hadn't forgotten how to notch one of his trademarks hits despite his position switch across the line of scrimmage.

"Oh man that felt good," Williams said, smiling.

The Seminoles averaged 8.1 yards per play and had the ball just 24:01 compared to B-CU's 3.3 yards-per-play average in 35:25 of offensive work. FSU's defense, which has yet to give up a 300-yard game this season, let Bethune-Cookman gain just 242 yards.

Starting for the first time in his career in place of suspended middle linebacker Christian Jones, Terrance Smith showed off with a game-high 12 tackles and one sack. Redshirt freshmen Chris Casher and Ukeme Eligwe added 10 and six tackles, respectively, and E.J. Levenberry, Reggie Northrup, Telvin Smith and Terrence Brooks all had five stops apiece.

Five-star freshmen Jalen Ramsey and Matthew Thomas each both added three tackles and a sack.

The 'Noles started slow defensively, giving up four BCU first downs on the opening drive before Terrence Smith's big second-down sack set up 3rd-and-16. Telvin Smith then stepped in front the pass and raced untouched for the Seminoles' first defensive score of the year and a 7-0 lead.

"I was going!" Telvin Smith said. "I just kind of put my head back and let it go; put the pedal to the metal. Nobody was catching me, I know that."

It took until the 4:31 mark of the first quarter for the FSU offense to get the ball for the first time. Freeman's 18-yard run, a 14-yard Benjamin catch and then a 24-yard Shaw grab set up a 45-yard Roberto Aguayo field goal for a 10-0 score.

After Wilder, Jr.'s fumble near the goal line, B-CU quickly gave the ball right back with a holding penalty that resulted in a safety and 12-0 FSU lead. Then on FSU's ensuing drive, Winston unleashed his 11-yard touchdown play to Benjamin to give the 'Noles a 19-0 advantage.

That lead extended to 26-0 late in the second quarter after Wilder, Jr. found redemption with a two-yard touchdown plunge on the heels of an 82-yard drive. Florida State added one more score -- a one-yard Freeman run -- before the break to take a 33-0 lead into the break.

Winston's 19-yard pass to Greene just 1:21 in the second half then gave FSU a 40-0 lead. The scoring play marked Winston's final play of the night before Coker took over.

Following a B-CU scoring drive that halted the would-be shut out and produced 75 of the Wildcats' 242 total yards, Coker fired a 29-yard completion to Shaw and then Williams burst through the line for a 19-yard gain. One play later, Williams scored his second rushing score in as many games as he's played tailback with a three-yard rumble to pay dirt for a 47-6 score.

Williams later added a one-yard late-third-quarter run that was set up by Whitfield's 42-yard grab and dash.

"They better be," Fisher said, when asked if he thought his team was ready after three games for the full ACC slate of games. "It's coming in seven days; we'll find out."

Winston Leads FSU to 48-34 Win at BC.

Jameis Winston's masterful game -- and memorable time-expiring play -- highlight the No. 8 Seminoles' conference victory at Boston College Saturday.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

NEWTON, MA -- No. 8 Florida State's defense bent but didn't break and Jameis Winston bent out of two potential sacks on the same play and broke Twitter Saturday night in the Seminoles' come-from-behind 48-34 win at Boston College.

FSU's defense struggled throughout most of the game to stop the run and slow down BC's different offensive looks as the 'Noles (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell behind 17-3 early. But while the defense started generating stops, Winston and the offense began rolling -- and no play was more memorable and meaningful than the young quarterback's 55-yard touchdown throw to Kenny Shaw on the senior receiver's "snake route" as the first-half clock expired at Alumni Stadium.

The play, which featured Winston calmly rolling out of two would-be sacks, was followed by a social media frenzy in which word -- and video -- of the miraculous play spread across the Internet at an eye-popping, reload-at-your-own-risk rate.

"I just wanted to score a touchdown before the half and Kenny made a play," Winston said. "He's an outstanding target that I've got and he made a great play."

For Winston, the play one was part of an 8-for-8 completion streak that saw him lead FSU from a two-score deficit to a advantage it would never relinquish. For FSU's defense, the Eagles (2-2, 1-1) got their yards by gashing FSU for a season-high 200 yards rushing on the ground. Boston College also added 198 yards through the air with four Chase Rettig touchdown passes.

His counterpart Winston finished the game 17-of-27 for 330 yards with four touchdowns and one interception. He also added 67 yards rushing on 14 carries. Winston's do-it-all effort propelled the Seminoles to 489 yards of total offense -- 330 of them through the air and 159 on the ground.

"Let me say this now, I am glad [Winston] is on my team," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "He's a great competitor [and] he's a fun guy to coach. When he comes over he makes the adjustment and is very coachable."

Rashad Greene hauled in two of Winston's touchdown throws to move to 12th all time on FSU's career receiving scores list. The true junior now has 17 scores on just 147 touches. Greene finished with 90 yards on four catches while his buddies Kelvin Benjamin (three catches for 103 yards) and Shaw (four catches for 93 yards and a score) also put up big numbers.

Starting fullback Chad Abram also had a touchdown catch for his first career score.

Devonta Freeman added 49 yards on nine carries and Karlos Williams posted a one-yard touchdown run. Redshirt freshman Roberto Aguayo contributed two made field goals and six extra points to set the school record for consecutive made kicks to start a career.

On the opposite side of the ball, FSU's defense will have a lot to watch and learn from in the film room in preparation for Maryland next weekend and then high-powered Clemson in three weeks -- but the 'Noles still made plays and the Eagles were never closer than 10 points in the final 24-minutes plus to end the game.

P.J. Williams' pick-six early in fourth quarter gave the Seminoles a more comfortable lead and Nate Andrews' game-sealing takeaway on the goal line with less than two minutes kept the Eagles form making it a one-score affair. Telvin Smith also had a big sack on that second-to-last BC drive that helped set up what would be Rettig interception throw.

Smith registered a team-high 10 tackles while Terrance Brooks, Timmy Jernigan, Christian Jones and Jalen Ramsey all had seven stops. Ramsey moved from his starting corner spot to safety in the game in place of Tyler Hunter, who was out with a neck injurey. P.J. Williams took Ramsey's starting spot at cornerback.

Desmond Hollin and Eddie Goldman also added first-career sacks for the Seminoles.

"We've got to get better in all three phases," Fisher said. "But guys, we are a work in progress. We are a work in progress but we are learning to win on the road and I am very proud of that. We are 4-0."

Like Pittsburgh did in the 'Noles' first road game of the year, Boston College scored a touchdown on its first drive to take an early 7-0 lead. After a 38-yard completion from Winston to Benjamin, Aguayo drained a 40-yard field goal to get a few of those points back and make it a 7-3 game with 6:34 left in the first quarter.

Unlike that Pittsburgh game, though, the Eagles wouldn't go away as Rettig tossed his second touchdown of the day on the ensuing drive to give BC a 14-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. That lead appeared destined to be even bigger to start the second frame but FSU held on third-and-short and the Eagles' eight-play, 52-yard drive ended in a field goal.

Down 17-3, the FSU offense finally had an answer thanks to Winston's 56-yard touchdown toss to a wide open Greene. The scoring play was the longest completion of Winston's career.

After trading punts, FSU forced a second consecutive Boston College three-and-out before starting what would turn out to be a beautiful offensive drive orchestrated by FSU's redshirt freshman under center. Starting with three consecutive first down passes before adding a career-long 20 yard run, Winston capped the seven-play, 80-yard drive with a 10-yard scoring throw to Abram to tie the game with 4:44 left in the second quarter.

The FSU defense then forced a three-and-out and the 'Noles took the lead on Winston's play-of-the-year-caliber Hail Mary as time expired.

Trailing 24-17 to start the second half, Boston College exploded for a 71-yard kick return on the first play of the third quarter. The play put the Eagles into the redzone but the 'Noles' defense stiffened and allowed just a 24-yard field goal.

On the next drive, Winston's completion streak ended at eight but his 24-yard third-down throw to Benjamin moved the chains and five plays later he found Greene on the 10-yard score. Up 31-20 at that point, FSU went 60 yards on eight plays and Williams extended the Seminoles' advantage to 38-20 on his one-yard scoring plunge.

But Boston College wasn't quite ready to go away. Rettig's season-high 52-yard touchdown heave to Myles Willis trimmed the deficit to 38-27. The 'Noles then got three of those back on Aguayo's 20-yard field goal on the third play of the fourth quarter.

P.J. Williams' interception return for a score pushed the lead back to 48-27 a minute a half later but Rettig answered with a 17-yard touchdown throw to C.J. Parsons. The Eagles got the ball back looking for more but Andrews stepped in front of the pass and raced down the sidelines with 1:53 to put the game out of reach.

"We adjusted to them well, we just didn't take on blockers as well," Fisher said. "We've got to take on blockers better. There was not an unsound thing we did, we just have to take on blockers better. We have to defeat blockers better."

FSU Delivers Record-Tying 63-0 Maryland Knockout.

No. 8 'Noles tie college football record for most lopsided win over a ranked opponent in their all-three-phases domination of the No. 25 Terps Saturday.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Playing with a chip on its shoulder, No. 8 Florida State's defense delivered whistle-to-whistle sustained blows to No. 25 Maryland in a 63-0 win at Doak Campbell Stadium -- an outcome that tied the college football record for most lopsided victory ever over a ranked team.

As the score would indicate, the previously untested Terrapins (4-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) couldn't do anything against an FSU (5-0, 3-0) defense that had to listen to a week's worth of negative fan and media chatter in the wake of its subpar performance at Boston College last weekend.

After allowing the Eagles to generate nearly 400 yards of offense in the come-from-behind win, the 'Noles held Maryland and its 18th-ranked offense to just 234 total yards -- including a paltry 33 on the ground.

"We had to play with that way, man," FSU redshirt senior defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel said. "As a defensive player you can't play soft no matter what. We came out with a chip; we heard the doubters. Florida State football is based on defense and we know as a group we had to come out and prove ourselves and show the offense that we are there for those guys."

McDaniel, who knocked Maryland starter C.J. Brown out of the game for good with a vicious blast to the quarterback's chest in the second quarter, and the FSU defense held the Terps to just 2-of-15 on third-down conversions and just nine total first downs. Maryland managed just 4.1 yards per play in what was the final meeting between the two programs as conference foes before the Terrapins shuffle off to the Big Ten next year.

Speedy wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who came into the game averaging 100 yards receiving per contest, was held to just 24 yards, too.

"The defense I thought was the story of the day -- and the special teams," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "I thought they really took the show. They dominated from start to finish against some great some skills guys. ... They have a great scheme and I thought our guys covered well, rushed well, we pressured the quarterback, we hit them with great leverage on the football and tackled well."

The Terrapins didn't tackle 'Noles quarterback Jameis Winston so well when the redshirt freshman made yet another Sportcenter Top-10 play on this 12-yard touchdown throw to Nick O'Leary in the third quarter.

Like he did at Boston College when he shucked would-be sackers to launch a 55-yard Kenny Shaw touchdown, Winston slid his way from underneath Maryland defenders for the memorable score. So while the defense was delivering its blows, Winston was throwing haymakers en route to a 23-of-32 for a career-high 393 yards and a career-high five touchdowns performance.

As an offense, Florida State racked up 614 total yards and picked up 33 first downs while churning out 7.5 yards per play with no turnovers.

Devonta Freeman ran for 63 yards a score, Karlos Williams added two more touchdown runs and Rashad Greene grabbed four catches for 108 yards. Shaw also added 96 yards on five catches with a touchdown to bring his season total to 463 yards and Kelvin Benjamin snatched two touchdown catches and 60 yards.

O'Leary also finished with two touchdown catches for an offense that excelled at spreading the football around.

"It's fun when you look at the [stats] and everybody is contributing," Shaw said. "That's what I like, is to see everybody doing well."

Speaking of doing things well, the Seminoles once again were terrific in the final moments before halftime and the first few minutes after the break. For the fifth consecutive game, FSU scored on its final possession of the first half and on its first possession of the second.

The 'Noles now head into the bye week with the Death Valley showdown against No. 3 Clemson looming. If the Tigers can get past Syracuse Saturday and then Boston College next weekend, the top-10 matchup could very well be an ESPN Gameday destination.

"We've got to take this off week to get better," Fisher said. "Get fundamentally better, work on some of our future opponents with some things we are going to do and get ready to get on the stretch of seven straight without an off week.

"... But I'm proud of where we are at so far and we have done what we were supposed to have done and put us in position to play some good ballgames."

FLORIDA STATE 51, CLEMSON 14

FSU Dominates Clemson in Top Five Battle, 51-14.

Jameis Winston throws for 444 yards in victory at No. 3 Clemson.

CLEMSON, SC - Jameis Winston and Florida State didn't take long to hush Death Valley, making a statement that could be heard from Alabama to Oregon.

The Seminoles' remarkable redshirt freshman threw for 444 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Florida State crushed No. 3 Clemson 51-14 Saturday night. When the first BCS standings of the season come out Sunday, Florida State should be right there with the top-ranked Crimson Tide and second-ranked Ducks, fighting for the top spots.

"Do we deserve to be in the top two? We deserve to be No. 1," Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith said.

The Atlantic Coast Conference's game of the year, billed as maybe the league's biggest game ever, quickly became a Seminoles' seminar on how to take apart a top-five opponent on its hostile home turf in front of 83,428.

"We don't play against noise. We're playing against the Clemson Tigers," Winston said. "It was amazing, when we were out on the field that first snap. It was loud and we started smiling because we don't play against noise."

The game started with two Heisman Trophy contender quarterbacks. It ended with one.

Playing in one of the loudest stadiums in the country, Winston was unfazed, going 22 for 34 for Florida State (6-0, 4-0). His first throw was a 22-yard touchdown to Kelvin Benjamin, and he scrambled for a 4-yard touchdown that made it 41-7 with 4:04 left in the third quarter.

"They took advantage of our mistakes," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "They might be the best team in the country."

Tajh Boyd threw two interceptions for Clemson, and his first-quarter fumble was returned 37 yards for touchdown by Mario Edwards. Clemson (6-1, 4-1) turned it over a season-high four times, the first one on the first play from scrimmage.

"We know we're better than how we played, but nobody cares about that," Swinney said.

Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 146 yards and two scores, including a 72-yard sprint that made it 24-7 Florida State in the second quarter.

The Seminoles broke a five-game losing streak at Memorial Stadium, scored more points than any opponent ever has in Death Valley and gave fourth-year coach Jimbo Fisher his biggest victory since taking over for Bobby Bowden.

Florida State is also perfect through six games for the first time since 1999, the last time Bowden's `Noles won the national championship.

Maybe after all these years, the Seminoles are finally back to that level?

"They're mature, they're growing, they're older, they understand the moments," Fisher said of his team.

As for Clemson, the Tigers can't be accused of `Clemsoning' this one away. They were simply outclassed.

Florida State tight end Nick O'Leary punctuated the beatdown in the third quarter, running over Clemson's Travis Blanks as he tried to make a tackle. Seminoles by a knockout. O'Leary finished with five catches for 161.

The game marked only the fourth time that the conference better known for basketball has matched two top-five football teams, and the first time since 2005.

Not long after Clemson made its grand entrance, sprinting past Howard's Rock and down the hill onto the field, orange balloons filling the sky above Memorial Stadium, Florida State took control. On the first play from scrimmage Smith stripped Stanton Seckinger and Terrence Brooks recovered for the Seminoles at the Clemson 34.

Two plays later, Winston lofted deep down the sideline to the 6-foot-5 Benjamin, who went up high for the perfectly thrown ball and landed with it inside the pylon for a touchdown.

Winston has been even better than advertised in his first season as a starter, hard to believe considering the hype. But this opponent and this setting represented by far the biggest challenge of his young career. Turns out, it was just another showcase - for Florida State's defense, too.

Lamarcus Joyner forced Clemson turnover No. 2, coming free on a blitz and knocking the ball free from Boyd. Edwards scooped and scored. It was 17-0 with 3:07 left in the first quarter and Death Valley suddenly didn't seem so daunting.

Clemson made a much needed response, Boyd hitting Sammy Watkins with a 3-yard touchdown pass to trim the lead to 10 late in the first quarter. But Winston and his talented receivers struck again.

Winston beat a Clemson blitz with a quick pass to Greene, who slipped a tackle and was gone, 72 yards for a touchdown that made it 24-7 midway through the second. Greene made a shush gesture to the Clemson fans. He didn't need to. He had already quieted them.

Joyner's interception of Boyd in Florida State territory turned it into another field goal to make it 27-7 at halftime.

Boyd finished 17 for 37 for 156 yards.

The last sounds heard booming from Memorial Stadium were from the Florida State band, playing that familiar Seminole war chant with its fans chopping away.

Bowden Returns, 'Noles Roll.

With legendary former coach Bobby Bowden in attendance for the first time since his 2009 retirement, No. 2 FSU moves to 7-0 with a 49-17 win over NC State Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Bobby Bowden planted Osceola's spear and then major college football's all-time winningest coach watched his former team bury NC State, 49-17, Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

In a performance reminiscent of Florida State football's glory years when Bowden's teams were the baddest in the land, steamrolling lesser opponents and competing for national championships, Jimbo Fisher's No. 2 'Noles dropped 35 points on the Wolfpack (3-4, 0-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) in the first quarter before moving to 7-0 overall and 5-0 in the ACC.

"The emotions of coming off a big win at Clemson, I was very proud that we are learning to handle that better," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "I thought we prepared well all week."

The last time FSU started a season 7-0 was 1999 and the Bowden-led 'Noles would eventually win the national title.

If this year's Seminoles hope to turn the same perfect start to a season into a championship crown at year's end, sustaining its October dominance is key.

Saturday, the Seminoles' first-team defense only played in the first half and star quarterback Jameis Winston and the first-team offense only played the first series of the second half and NC State scored all 17 of its points against the 'Noles' second and third string players. Not counting the points that FSU's backups allowed, the Seminoles dismantled Maryland, Clemson and NC State by a combined score of 156-14 in 10 consecutive quarters.

Next up for the `Noles on the championship quest? No. 7 Miami at home next weekend with ESPN College Gameday set to broadcast live from outside of Doak Campbell Stadium.

"After coming off a big win, the main thing is you've got to keep that same kind of focus," FSU senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner said. "Just keeping that focus is critical and I was proud of how we did that. We weren't looking ahead and we weren't looking back."

Winston's numbers weren't as eye-popping as they were a week ago at Clemson, but the Heisman Trophy candidate did add three more touchdown tosses to his 2013 totals in the win. The rookie now has 23 scoring throws seven games, matching first-round NFL draft selection EJ Manuel's 2012 season total. Winston finished the day 16-of-26 for 292 yards, the trio of scores and one interception that bounced off Kelvin Benjamin's hands on the final first-team offensive drive.

Rashad Greene was Winston's favorite target, hauling in eight catches for 137 yards and one touchdown. Benjamin added four catches for 89 yards and a score and Nick O'Leary also found the endzone. Devonta Freeman ran 12 times for 96 yards with two touchdowns and Karlos Williams had 13 runs for 86 yards and Levonte Whitfield took a reverse 31 yards for late fourth-quarter score.

FSU racked up 550 yards of total offense and tied the school record for most points scored in a single quarter with 35 in the game's opening frame.

"These last two weeks we have just started off fast," Winston said. "If you get early turnovers and you get good field position, that's what happens when you have an offense like ours."

Just as they did against the Tigers, the 'Noles forced a turnover on the game's first drive when Terrence Brooks hauled in a diving interception off NC State quarterback Brandon Mitchell. Brooks later added a forced fumble. Ronald Darby also added an interception.

FSU's top four tacklers were all linebackers with true freshman E.J. Levenberry posting a team-best eight stops. Reggie Northrup and Telvin Smith each had six tackles and Terrance Smith had five tackles and a sack. Christian Jones also had a sack while matching DeMarcus Walker, Jacobbi McDaniel, Joyner, Marquez White and Nate Andrews with four tackles.

The Seminoles' defense didn't allow NC State to cross midfield until early in the second quarter and the first team defense allowed just 80 first half yards. NC State finished the game with 316 total yards as Mitchell finished 17-of-33 for 128 yards.

"I feel like our coaches harped on the most in this game was not settling," Brooks said. "Don't look at the scoreboard, just go out there and play every play."

No. 3 'Noles Remain Perfect, Crush No. 7 'Canes, 41-14.

Florida State now 8-0, with four games left to play.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Jameis Winston threw for 325 yards and No. 3 Florida State rolled to a 41-14 victory against No. 7 Miami in another matchup of undefeated Atlantic Coast Conference rivals that turned into a Seminoles' blowout.

Winston threw two interceptions in the first half after throwing four in the first seven games, but the Florida State defense shut out the Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1) in the second half after it was 21-14 at the break.

The Seminoles (8-0, 6-0) went on a 20-0 run after a skirmish broke out midway through the third quarter. The two teams were called for offsetting personal fouls and James Wilder Jr. scored on a 5-yard run on the next play. The rout was on from that point, not much different from Florida State's 51-14 win at Clemson last month.

The Seminoles have handily defeated all three Top 25 teams they played this season. Their national championship hopes are alive and well with Florida being the last real challenge in the regular season.

"Just like baseball, sometimes you go out there and strike out," Winston said. "Then you've got to come back and bounce back."

Florida State and Miami seemed ready for a civil outing when they lined up before the game to shake hands. Outside of a little trash-talk, there wasn't much fury between the two teams separated by 500 miles. Both were flagged for offsetting personal fouls midway through the third quarter when pushes and shoves were exchanged. Florida State right tackle Bobby Hart was chewed out by coach Jimbo Fisher for getting involved with Miami defensive end Anthony Chickillo.

Wilder scored on a 5-yard touchdown run on the next snap and the Seminoles were energized. Miami's night was all but over at that point.

Freeman ran for 81 yards and two touchdowns against his hometown team while Miami running back Duke Johnson posted 97 yards on 23 carries, before leaving with a leg injury.

Winston threw one touchdown and Miami quarterback Stephen Morris threw for 192 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Winston and the No. 3 ranked scoring offense in the FBS didn't waste any time putting points on the board in the first quarter. The Seminoles opened the game with a 13-play, 72 yard drive that ended with Freeman's 5-yard touchdown run. They converted three third downs as Winston showed off his arm with completions to Kelvin Benjamin, Rashad Greene and Freeman and his legs with a 19-yard run on third-and-12.

The Miami offense responded with an impressive drive of its own that included 28 yards from Johnson on his first three carries. Coach Al Golden didn't open with a slow, ball-control plan as many expected to keep the Florida State offense on the sideline. Miami went hurry-up with a heavy dose of Johnson to move to the FSU 27-yard line, but Matt Goudis missed a 44-yard field goal wide left.

The Miami defense forced two huge turnovers in the first half that kept Florida State from running away. Safety Deon Bush picked off a Winston overthrow intended for Greene. The Hurricanes scored five plays later on a 33-yard pass from Morris to Allen Hurns to tie the game at 7-7.

The Seminoles got their groove back on the ensuing possession and put together another drive capped by a Wilder Jr. 1-yard touchdown run to go up 14-7.

The game was on the verge of being a first-half blowout after Freeman took a screen pass 48 yards for a touchdown. Miami overloaded the right side of the Florida State line and came with a heavy blitz, but Fisher caught them with the perfect call - the screen to the left where there were more blockers than defenders.

The Seminoles went up 21-7 with 5:08 left in the second quarter and the Hurricanes promptly went three-and-out. Winston took the field ready to bury Miami under a 21-point lead, but Rayshawn Jenkins picked him off and gave the offense the ball near midfield. Morris found Hurns again with a 14-yard touchdown pass eight plays later to send the game into halftime with the Hurricanes up 21-14.

No. 2 'Noles: 2013 ACC Atlantic Division Champions.

FSU's defensive dominance leads to a 59-3 win at Wake Forest -- and a spot in the Dec. 7 Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game in Charlotte.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- How did No. 2 Florida State respond after being handed control of its own national-championship destiny Thursday night? It's defense delivered an ACC Atlantic Division title Saturday at Wake Forest.

FSU will have to win its next four games to punch a ticket to Pasadeana, but in a 59-3 walloping of Wake Forest at BB&T Field, the Seminoles (9-0, 7-0 ACC) used a dominating defense to at least guarantee itself a trip to Charlotte and the chance to defend its conference crown come Dec. 7.

The Seminoles were so good defensively against the Demon Deacons (4-6, 2-5) that Heisman Trophy hopeful Jameis Winston and his high-powered offense were merely an afterthought in the drubbing. From a statistical standpoint, the victory won't turn any heads -- Winston threw for a career-low 159 yards in a little more than two quarters of play (but did set the ACC freshman record passing touchdowns in a season with his 25th and 26th of the season) and the `Noles generated a season low 296 total yards -- but the team did extend the school record of consecutive games scoring at least 40 points to nine.

The offense didn't have to be its usual special self. Instead, the defense, which rested its starters after the first drive of the second half but still forced seven total turnovers, was spectacular enough for both.

"[The defense] played a hell of a game," FSU wide receiver Rashad Greene said.

FSU tied a school record in the blowout with six interceptions, matching a mark that had been set against Louisville in 1991. The Seminoles had 107 interception return yards with one score while Wake Forest only had 166 total yards of offense.

Starting in place of injured starter Terrence Brooks (concussion), rookie Nate Andrews shone brightest in star-studded defensive showing. Andrews finished with two interceptions -- one of which he took back 56 yards for FSU's first defensive score -- and then forced a fumble that was scooped and scored by fellow freshman Jalen Ramsey that gave the Seminoles a 35-0 second-quarter lead.

Andrews now leads the team with four interceptions this season.

"Nate has been surprising us and he's been doing a good job so far," FSU senior linebacker Christian Jones. "We are looking forward to seeing him keep improving; he's a good player. He had a big game. We prepare for situations when some guys go down and we have younger guys that can step in if something happens.

"And Nate Andrews capitalized on this opportunity."

He wasn't the only one to make an impact Saturday.

Jones also had a hand in the turnover party, smashing Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price in the first quarter and forcing an errant pass that was intercepted by Mario Edwards, Jr.

Jones then intercepted Demon Deacons backup quarterback Tyler Cameron on the first and only play the first-team defense would play in the second half.

Edwards, Jr.'s interception gave FSU the ball on Wake Forest's 27-yard line and two plays later resulted in an 18-yard Kelvin Benjamin score that padded the `Noles' lead at 21-0 after two Devonta Freeman and James Wilder, Jr. scoring runs put the visitor on top for good earlier. Jones' interception gave FSU the ball at the Wake Forest five-yard line and was immediately followed by a short Karlos Williams touchdown run that extended the Seminoles' advantage to 49-0.

Short fields and quick scores for the FSU offense.

Terrance Smith and Marquez White both had interceptions as well. Collectively, Wake Forest's three quarterbacks that played had nearly as many interceptions (six) as completions (seven).

"That's something we always talk about doing is getting a lot of turnovers," Jones said. "It worked out in our favor today."

Reggie Northrup led the way with eight tackles and a half tackle for loss for the Atlantic Division champs. Timmy Jernigan and E.J. Levenberry both had six stops and Demonte McAllister and Lamarcus Joyner had four tackles apiece.

FSU limited the Demon Deacons to 2.6 yards per play and just five third-down conversions on 17 attempts.

"It was talked about a little bit," Edwards, Jr. said, when asked about any national championship chatter before Saturday's game," but Jimbo [Fisher] just said that's part of the clutter. We have to get rid of that and just focus one game at a time. Everybody is putting the clutter to the side and we are doing just what we've been doing the past eight weeks, just going out and playing assignment-sound football."

Offensively, Greene hauled in five of Winston's passes for 47 yards while Nick O'Leary and Karlos Williams each had three grabs. One of Williams catches came from Jacob Coker, who replaced Winston early in the third quarter. Chad Abram caught Winston's second touchdown toss.

Rookie wide recover Levonte Whitfield didn't get involved in the offense but that didn't stop him from updating the scoreboard. His 97-yard special-teams touchdown in the fourth quarter was Florida State's first kick return score since 2008.

No. 2 FSU Smashes Syracuse, 59-3.

The 'Noles cap off an undefeated ACC regular season and become the first team in league history to score at least 40 points in 10 consecutive games.

By Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Were there two national championship teams inside Doak Campbell Stadium Saturday?

That's obviously still to be determined but on a day when Florida State honored its 1993 title team in a pre-game ceremony, this 2013 edition of the Seminoles continued its dominant march toward a potential trip to Pasadena in a 59-3 shut-down of Syracuse (5-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

"That's one of the best football teams I've seen in my 23 years coaching," Syracuse coach Scott Shafer said. "They are big, they are fast, they are talented and they know what they're doing."

No. 2 FSU was relentless in securing its 10th victory of the season and moving to 8-0 in the ACC for the first time since 2000. The Seminoles raced to a 28-0 first quarter lead, didn't face a third-down situation until 5:28 left in the second quarter and held the Orange to just 3.2 yards per play.

Heisman Trophy contender Jameis Winston needed just two quarters of play to complete 19 of his 21 passes for 277 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers while `Noles great Charlie Ward, who knows a thing or two about post-season hardware, watched from the sideline.

"I thought Jameis played exceptionally well," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "He made good decisions, got the ball where he had to get it to to guys coming in and out of the right runs and checks. I thought he played a very efficient game today."

Sean Maguire, who stepped into the role of No. 2 quarterback this week in the wake of Jacob Coker's season-ending knee injury, played the entire second half -- the most on-field action of his career -- and kept the offensive freight-train moving.

Maguire finished 3-of-5 for 21 yards with his first career touchdown pass and in the process Florida State became the first team in ACC history to score at least 40 points in 10 consecutive games.

James Wilder, Jr. was responsible for 12 of those points, scoring on touchdown runs of three yards (first quarter) and a career-long 37 yards (third quarter). True freshman speedster Levonte Whitfield also added a 74-yard first-quarter touchdown dash in which a downfield diving block by Winston helped spring the rookie for the stretch run to the endzone.

The Seminoles also got rushing scores from Devonta Freeman (four yards in the first quarter) and Kelvin Benjamin and Rashad Greene also added touchdown catches. Nick O'Leary caught a 19-yard scoring pass from Maguire to set the FSU school record for career touchdowns by a tight end with 11 and counting.

"Sean made a beautiful throw," Fisher said about record-breaking scoring toss to O'Leary. "You can see some of Sean's talent. Sean has arm talent, he just needs reps."

Karlos Williams led the way on the ground with 78 yards on just four carries for a 19.5 yards-per-carry average and Kenny Shaw caught seven passes for a game-high 99 yards. In total, the Seminoles racked up 523 yards -- 298 through the air and 225 on the ground -- despite a 41:42 to 18:18 time-of-possession edge in favor of Syracuse.

"The balance is what defines this offense," Wilder, Jr. said. "Jameis Winston throwing the ball it makes it easy for the `backs and the running game. We've got great receivers and gas them in the passing game. It's a great balance between the two and that's the difference."

As has been the case nearly almost all season, FSU's defense was just as stellar as its offense.

The `Noles forced two turnovers -- its fifth consecutive game with more than one takeaway -- when Chris Casher stripped Syracuse backup quarterback Drew Allen and scooped and scored from 31 yards out and then Dan Hicks intercepted a pass on the next Orange drive.

FSU now has 18 turnovers in its last five games -- a total that is more than many teams have generated over the course of the entire season.

"It just gives you something to really want to go out and work for every day, day in and day out," FSU defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan said about creating turnovers. "There's nothing better than working hard and seeing results."

Syracuse was averaging more than 200 yards rushing per game but the `Noles stymied that attack, limiting the visitors to 143 yards on the ground (139 of which occurred in the final two quarters against the second- and third-team FSU defense). The Orange finished with just 247 yards.

The Seminoles have now outscored their opponents 527-111 this season.

Sophomore Reggie Northrup picked up a game-high 11 tackles while E.J. Levenberry, Lamarcus Brutus, Nate Andrews and Jernigan each had six stops. Dan Hicks added five tackles to his interception and Terrance Smith had five tackles, too.

Star defensive back Lamarcus Joyner added to his team-high sacks total with two more in the victory.

Roberto Aguayo posted a career-long 53-yard field goal to cap off the `Noles' complete domination.

"I thought offense, defense and special teams were able to execute," Fisher said. "They played well and they impacted the game in all three phases. That was critical."

FSU Sets School Record for Points Scored in 80-14 Win.

No. 2 'Noles update the history books in a dominating victory over Idaho Saturday night in the final game at Doak Campbell Stadium this season.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

TALLAHASSEE, FL -- No. 2 Florida State sent its seniors off in style Saturday night, setting a school record for points scored in a game in an 80-7 victory over Idaho.

The Seminoles (11-0) officially broke the 18-year-old record (the 1995 team hung 77 on NC State) after linebacker E.J. Levenberry housed a 78-yard interception return with less than five minutes to play in the game.

While a rookie capped off the dominating performance, several `Noles playing in their final game at Doak Campbell Stadium got it all started. Wide receiver Kenny Shaw registered his first 100-yard game of the season, linebacker Telvin Smith turned in a highlight-reel 79-yard interception return and defensive tackle Jacobbi McDaniel picked off the second pass of his career -- all of which occurred in a 42-7 first half.

"I don't think my high school basketball team scored 80 points," Shaw said jokingly afterwards.

Of course, Levenberry and the rest of the younger players did their part in making plays, too.

Jameis Winston continued his stellar, Heisman-Trophy contending season, despite once again not having to play an entire game. The redshirt freshman played in just the first quarters and one series in the second half -- a short final drive that concluded with a rocket-armed 21-yard strike to Kelvin Benjamin in the endzone.

Winston finished the game 14-of-25 for 225 yards and four touchdowns, moving to within one scoring pass of tying Chris Weinke's school-record 33 touchdown tosses he accumulated in 2000. Winston's 32 touchdowns this year is tied with Danny Kanell for No. 2 all time at FSU.

"I thought [Winston] played very solid," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said.

Benjamin grabbed two of those scores. He also had a 32-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and finished with three grabs for 61 yards. Shaw had 107 yards and two touchdowns after coming within 11 yards of hitting the century mark in six previous games this season.

The `Noles three-headed monster at tailback did work on the ground as well. Devonta Freeman took all the carries in the first quarter and finished the day with 11 runs for a season-high 129 yards and a 60-yard first-quarter score. James Wilder, Jr. only had to carry four times -- the quartet of carries all taking place on the same second-quarter drive -- and finished with 85 yards and one touchdown. Karlos Williams came on in the second half and added 114 yards on just 10 carries.

True freshman Ryan Green ran six times for 32 yards and added a two-yard touchdown catch from Sean Maguire in the fourth quarter. Maguire finished 9-of-14 for 84 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

"We wanted to send those seniors out with a win," Freeman said. "Those are our brothers and you want them to win their last game. We had big holes to run through and just made plays."

The Seminoles were remarkably balanced in the win, rushing for 336 yards and passing for 309. The `Noles' 645 total yards were a season high and marked the third time this year they have eclipsed 600 yards.

With 607 total points this season, Florida State set a school and ACC record for most points in a year, breaking the short-lived record of 550 the Seminoles set in 2012. FSU also set a new conference record for most touchdowns in a year with 80, breaking the 1995 FSU team's previous benchmark of 72.

Defensively, FSU continued its dominance. Led by star junior nose guard Timmy Jernigan, the Seminoles accrued a season-best eight sacks. Jernigan finished with 2 1/2 of those sacks while adding 4 1/2 tackles for loss and six total stops in just a first half of play.

"It was changing the line of scrimmage," Fisher said about Jernigan. "He was making plays by knocking guys into guys. His physicality, he is really becoming a technician."

Already the nation's leader in total interceptions, FSU's defense padded those stats against the Vandals (1-10) with four more interceptions to push their 11-game total to 23. In addition to McDaniel, Smith and Levenberry, true freshman Marquez White also intercepted a pass. Sixteen different `Noles now have an interception this season and for comparison's sake, 14 different players have catches on the offensive side of the football.

Senior Lamarcus Joyner and Smith both finished with four tackles and DeMarcus Walker, Derrick Mitchell, Eddie Goldman, Dan Hicks and Desmond Hollin were all involved in FSU's sack total.

Not to be outdone, Roberto Aguayo continued his sensational rookie year kicking. Agauyo set the national record for consecutive made extra points when he drilled his 78th point-after of the season early in the fourth quarter. Agauyo is now 80-for-80 this season.

The Seminoles now cap off the regular season in Gainesville, Nov. 30 at noon on ESPN. Florida (4-7) is coming off a Saturday loss to FCS-level Georgia Southern and is ineligible for a bowl game.

"I guarantee this," Fisher said, despite the Gator's historic struggles, "they'll be ready to play us when we go down there next week. ... We'll be ready and focused and locked in and ready to play Florida. We know we'll get their `A' game. It'll be a hostile and nasty environment."

FLORIDA STATE 37, FLORIDA 7

11/30/2013, GAINESVILLE, FL

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

No. 2 Florida State Overpowers Florida, 37-7.

Jameis Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards.

GAINESVILLE, FL -- Kelvin Benjamin shook off one tackler and then three more, bullying his way into the end zone to finish off Florida State's most impressive play on a day filled with them.

Benjamin was clearly a mismatch -- just like the game.

Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Benjamin, and No. 2 Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship with a 37-7 victory against rival Florida on Saturday.

"Tremendous," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and he's starting to develop into that guy."

The Seminoles improved to 12-0 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next Saturday.

Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979.

The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Florida's bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida State.

"We hit rock bottom this year," Florida guard Max Garcia said. "I feel like the only way we can go is up."

The Seminoles were four-touchdown favorites in a lopsided matchup that lived up to advance billing.

Although the outcome was never in doubt, the Gators made it interesting early with some stout defense. They hit Winston several times, even late once, and stuffed FSU's running game.

But with its offense floundering once again -- Florida managed just three first downs in the first half -- the defense eventually wore down.

And Winston & Co. took advantage.

"His competitiveness is ridiculous," Fisher said of Winston. "He's a competitor. Nothing fazes that guy. He thrives on that. ... The guy's ability to learn and process information is what puts him over the top. He can think. He understands what he's doing at all times. And when he makes a mistake, he can come off and tell you exactly why he did it, what he did or didn't do right."

Winston, the Heisman Trophy candidate being investigated for his role in an alleged rape, hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6-foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen down while making the catch.

Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0.

Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth.

FSU outgained Florida 456-193, most of it through the air.

Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin caught nine passes for a career-high 212 yards, beating Loucheiz Purifoy early and often. Benjamin's previous high was 103 yards receiving at Boston College earlier this year.

"Just doing the little things to be a great receiver, basically," Benjamin said.

About the only thing that went wrong for FSU was that testy exchange between Winston and coach Jimbo Fisher in the fourth quarter. Fisher was upset that Winston let the play clock wind down, forcing the team to call timeout. Winston screamed back at Fisher, who grabbed Winston's facemask on the sideline.

The coach and player downplayed it afterward.

Florida's defense held tough early, giving up just 33 yards and a field goal in the first quarter. Purifoy even intercepted Winston's fifth pass of the game, but the Gators failed to capitalize on the turnover. Austin Hardin missed a 49-yard field goal wide right. It was Florida's ninth missed field goal of the season.

As the offense kept stalling, the defense started fading.

"Everybody started looking at the scoreboard as a collective group and saying, 'Dang, the offense is just three-and-out, three-and-out, three-and-out,'" Florida defensive lineman Jon Bullard said.

It certainly didn't help that Florida had to throw its offensive game plan out the window after four plays.

Trey Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game, a fitting finale for the injury-riddled Gators.

Coach Will Muschamp said the plan was to line Burton up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder up the middle on his first carry. He injured his shoulder on his second run, Florida's fourth offensive play.

He went to the locker room and later returned wearing street clothes. His left arm was in a sling and wrapped with ice.

"Obviously you don't want to go out like that," Burton said. "I felt like I let my team down a little bit."

Without him, Florida turned to freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. He struggled in his two previous games, throwing for 229 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.

Mornhinweg finished 20-of-25 passing for 115 yards.

No. 1 'Noles Capture ACC Crown in 45-7 Duke Defeat.

Florida State moves to 13-0 as the Seminoles retain their perch atop the conference and potentially punch their ticket to Pasadena.

By: Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com Managing Editor

CHARLOTTE, NC -- For the 14th time in program history, the Florida State Seminoles are champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

After a 45-7 victory over No. 20 Duke Saturday night, the No. 1 `Noles now await official word on whether or not they'll get to compete for the program's third national championship. The decisive BCS Selection Show is Sunday at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

"Very happy for our team, our university," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "This championship means a lot to us. This is where we want to be every year and we have to get here to keep achieving and going to BCS games and the other games in which we want to get to, but the ultimate goal is to always win your conference and I think this conference is a great conference."

FSU (13-0) assuredly punched its ticket to Pasadena with yet another blowout victory built on an explosive offense and a dominating defense. The `Noles out-gained the Blue Devils (10-3) 569-239 and eclipsed 40 points on the scoreboard for the 12th time this season.

The Coastal Division champion Blue Devils had entered the game in Charlotte averaging nearly 423 yards of offense per game and 34 points.

FSU redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston likely locked up the Heisman Trophy in the triumph, beating Duke with both his arm and legs. Winston finished the night 19-of-32 for 330 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also added 59 yards rushing on 10 carries and a leaping score.

In the process, Winston set the single-season record for the ACC and among FBS freshman for passing touchdowns in a season and also set the FBS single-season passing-yardage record among freshmen. Winston now has 38 touchdowns this year with one game to go, shattering the previous record of 36 held by Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd (previous ACC record holder) and former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford (previous FBS freshman record holder).

The passing yardage mark was held by UCLA's Brett Hundly, who set the mark a season ago.

For his efforts against Duke, Winston was named the ACC Championship Game MVP.

"It means a lot, but as a teammate and having the guys right here beside me, our team is trying to make history, we're not trying to look at individual stats and things like that," Winston said. "We're trying to do something so much bigger than this, and then obviously the defense put us in a predicament for us to break all those records because defense wins championships, and they definitely won this game for us today."

Kelvin Benjamin continued his stellar play, catching five of Winston's passes for a game-high 119 yards with two touchdowns. Rashad Greene finished with 67 yards on six grabs and Kenny Shaw caught four for 74 yards.

The talented trio will head to the bowl game with the chance for each to end FSU's streak of no 1,000-yards receivers since Anquan Boldin in 2002. Greene now has 981 yards receiving this year, Benjamin has 957 and Shaw has 929.

The Seminoles haven't had a 1,000-yards rusher since Warrick Dunn but Devonta Freeman is now up to 943 yards rushing this season after gaining 91 against Duke on 18 carries with one touchdown. Karlos Williams added 55 yards and a touchdown of his own.

The 'Noles head to the bowl game just 28 points shy of setting the FBS all-time record for points scored in a season. The 689 points FSU has racked up this year is already third-most all time.

Of course, Florida State's defense was just as impressive as its offense.

Duke had just 99 yards rushing and were held to a 7-of-20 mark on third downs. Duke quarterback Anthony Boone was limited to 138 yards through the air and was intercepted twice -- once by Lamarcus Joyner and then again by Telvin Smith. FSU tied the school record for interceptions in a season as the `Noles are up to 25 picks this year.

Timmy Jernigan had another monster game from his nose guard position, racking up a game-best 10 tackles. Smith finished with eight tackles, a sack and that takeaway and Nate Andrews had five stops, a sack and a forced fumble.

The Seminoles had double the amount of first downs than Duke (31-15).

"They were outstanding," Fisher said about his defense. "This is one of the best defenses I've ever been around."

The first big play of the night went Duke's way when Freeman fumbled at the end of a 22-yard dash into the redzone early in the first quarter. It was just the fourth fumble lost by the `Noles all season and Freeman's first giveaway since Oct. 27, 2012, which was also against the Blue Devils.

After taking over at their own three-yard line, the Blue Devils strung together an impressive 6:03 drive into FSU territory but shanked a 48-yard field goal that would put FSU into a deficit for the first time since the September Boston College game.

What Duke did do in the first quarter was hold the `Noles scoreless -- a feat that previously hadn't been accomplished against FSU this season.

A moral victory for Duke, no doubt, but it wouldn't last. Winston needed just five plays to find a leaping Benjamin in the endzone for the game's first score. Leading 7-0, Duke registered a 40-yard punt return into FSU territory two drives later but a Joyner interception halted any hopes the Blue Devils had of getting on the board.

The Joyner turnover would then turn into points. Freeman's impressive 22-yard screen-pass reception was followed by a big Benjamin third-down conversion on a slant pattern. Williams then came into the lineup and trucked a few Duke defenders before rumbling 12 yards for the touchdown and a 14-0 FSU lead with 3:37 left in the second quarter.

"I'll just say the power of preparation, the way we prepare week in and week out," Joyner said. "That's where our confidence comes from. So when the game comes, it's easy."

FSU's Roberto Aguayo then connected on a 45-yard field goal with 33 seconds left in the half that pushed Florida State's lead to 17-0 heading into the break. For Aguayo, the 3-pointer officially gave him the FSU and ACC single-season scoring record -- breaking the mark set by Dustin Hopkins a season ago.

The record-breaking would then extend to another `Noles redshirt freshman.

After Andrews' big hit on Boone forced the Duke quarterback to throw a bad pass that was intercepted by Smith, Winston connected with Shaw for an 11-yard scoring strike to give FSU a 24-0 lead. The touchdown toss was Winston's 37th of the season and officially gave him that ACC overall record and FBS record among freshmen for scoring throws in a single season.

Winston then threw a 54-yard touchdown to Benjamin on the next drive that gave him that single-season passing yardage record for an FBS freshman. If that wasn't enough, Winston then added to his record-breaking night with a 17-yard touchdown run -- his fourth score -- one drive later that tied the ACC Football Championship Game mark for most touchdowns by one person in the annual league title game.

The Winston score was set up by Andrews' forced fumble that was recovered by Mario Edwards, Jr. on the previous FSU defensive series.

On his final drive of the night, Winston orchestrated one last scoring possession that concluded with a seven-yard Freeman touchdown run. The Blue Devils then avoided the shutout by marching 75 yards against the FSU second-team defense. Sean Maguire replaced Winston on the last series of the night.

FSU heads to the bowl game having outscored ranked opponents in 2013 by a combined score of 200-35. The Seminoles have now gone 571:49 since they last trailed in a ballgame.

Florida State finishes the 2013 calendar year as the only undefeated FBS team.

"We came out and we said we've got one job to do, and that's win," Smith said. "Whatever happens we're going to win. Whatever it takes, believing in the man next to you. Love is the reason for the fight. That's what we've been going by all season. Our attitude."

The 'Noles Win!

Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdown passes.

PASADENA, CA - Jameis Winston and Florida State faced down adversity for the first time this season, and showed they could take a punch if that's what it took to win a national championship.

The Heisman Trophy winner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left and No. 1 Florida State beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 to win the BCS championship game on Monday night.

"There's a lot of heart and guts down in Tallahassee, too," coach Jimbo Fisher said.

The Bowl Championship Series went out with a bang, with one of the best championship games in its 16-year history. And the Southeastern Conference's seven-year winning streak in college football's biggest game was snapped.

Winston struggled much of the night but was near perfect when the Seminoles (14-0) needed it most, going 6 for 7 for 77 yards on the game-winning 80 yard drive. A pass interference penalty on Auburn's Chris Davis gave Florida State a first-and-goal at the 2 and on the next play Winston hit his big receiver, Benjamin, for the touchdown in traffic.

There was no miracle finish this time for the turnaround Tigers. They tossed the ball around on one final play, but it ended with Florida State jumping on a fumble, and the Seminoles sprinting onto the field under a storm of garnet and gold confetti.

Tre Mason had given Auburn (12-2) a 31-27 lead with a 37-yard touchdown run with 1:19 left after Kermit Whitfield had put Florida State in the lead for the first time since the first quarter with a 100-yard kickoff return to make it 27-24 with 4:31 left.

Mason ran for 195 yards and Nick Marshall threw two touchdown passes for the Tigers.

"I told them in the locker room, we put together the biggest turnaround in the history of college football. We were on the brink of making it one of those magical seasons," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.

Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdown passes. Florida State hadn't been challenged like this all season, winning by an average of 42 points.

The redshirt freshman, who turned 20 Monday, told his teammates: "I said 'Guys, we didn't come here for no reason.' I said 'Y'all, this is ours, man."'

The Seminoles were down 21-3 in the first half, and wobbling, but never fell over.

And now Florida State is national champion for the first time since 1999, the first team to win it after being down at halftime.

Winston was jumpy against a strong Auburn pass rush, led by Dee Ford. He was sacked four times.

The Seminoles cut it to 21-10 with a late touchdown in the second quarter and chipped into Auburn's lead with a 41-yard field goal by Roberto Aguayo with 6:05 left in the third.

Meanwhile, Florida State had found some answers to Auburn's spread offense. A holding penalty that wiped out a long pass also helped keep the Tigers scoreless in the third quarter, and the Seminoles began the fourth with P.J. Williams intercepting Marshall's pass and setting up Florida State at its 38.

When Winston tossed in the flats to Chad Abram, who hurdled over a tackler on the way to an 11-yard touchdown the lead was 21-19. Florida State was considering going for two to tie, but Devonta Freeman was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and that pushed the extra point back 15 yards and forced the Seminoles to kick and make it 21-20.

Auburn responded with its best drive since the second quarter, mixing runs by Mason and Marshall with one big pass to Ricardo Louis. But it stalled at the 6 and Cody Parkey added a 22-yard field goal to make it 24-20 with 4:42 left.

During Winston's record-breaking season, filled with blowouts and fourth quarters spent watching from the sideline, he never faced a situation in which he had to drive his team to a winning score.

Now he had a chance to add that last line to his remarkable resume - until Whitfield handled it for him.

Whitfield broke through a seam around the 30 and hit the sideline at full speed. Fisher ran down the other sideline yelling "Go! Go!" with Winston chasing behind pumping his arms and slapping his coach on the back. Florida State was on top, but Auburn was not done.

Mason and Marshall went to work, driving Auburn into Florida State territory, and Auburn's Heisman finalist, Mason, finished it off by bowling over Florida State safety Jalen Ramsey on the way to the end zone.

Auburn billed itself as a team of destiny, having gone from 3-9 to SEC champs under first-year coach Malzahn - with the help of some miraculous finishes.

But for much of the first half team destiny, the 10-point underdog, was dominating.

Marshall flipped into the flats for Mason, who followed a few wipe-out blocks and zipped into the end zone for a 12-yard score with 3:07 left in the first quarter. Florida State trailed for the first time since Sept. 28 against Boston College.

The hole got deeper.

With Florida State's linebackers and safeties peeking into the backfield again, Auburn broke another receiver free down the middle. Marshall threw a strike this time to Melvin Ray, who went 50 yards for his first career touchdown and a 14-3 lead.

Meanwhile, for maybe the first time this season, Winston looked rattled. After completing three of his first four passes, he went 1 for 7, including a simple short throw that sailed high and missed its target by at least 10 yards. Fisher could be seen yelling to his coaches that they needed to calm down Winston.

Auburn's defense certainly didn't look as if it ranked 89th in the country in yards allowed per game. Ford was getting pressure on Winston, Chris Davis defended three passes and the Tigers' D was playing like so many other SEC defenses that have controlled so many other BCS championship games during the conference's reign over college football.

Ben Bradley and Angelo Blackson sandwiched Winston as he tried to tuck and run and the ball came loose. Auburn recovered at Florida State's 27 and soon after Marshall swept in from 4 yards out for a 21-3 lead with 5:01 left in the first half.

Florida State finally came alive with the help of some trickery and some old-fashioned want-to from Winston. Facing fourth-and-4 in their own territory, the Seminoles faked the punt and ran a reverse to Karlos Williams that went for 7 yards.

Then Winston asserted himself in not the typical way for the most efficient passer in the country. On third-and-7, he broke free of the pocket, stiff-armed past one Auburn tackler and went for 21 yards to the 3. Freeman plunged into the end zone on the next play to make it 21-10 with 1:28 left in the half.

Fisher patted Winston on the helmet as the quarterback shook his head, as if to say, 'I'm better now.'
