Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the second-ranked Seminoles took care of business like usual on Saturday.
Florida State broke a school record for points in a game and Winston threw for 225 yards and four touchdowns in their 80-14 victory against Idaho.
“The football field is a sanctuary to me,” Winston said. “And it’s like that for all of our teammates. When all of us are on the field everything is just zoned out. We focus.”
Undefeated Florida State is second in the BCS standings behind Alabama. They are only two wins away from making it to the BCS championship game. This is the best start for the team since their 1999 National Championship season.
Freshmen quarterback Winston, who is a Heisman Trophy front-runner, played only one series in the second half.
“It’s not right for the game,” Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. “People know he played well. … He played exceptionally well and he’s on a great team.
To me, stats aren’t the key for awards. It’s how well you play, how you dominate your opponent and what you do. That’s my opinion. People who look at numbers don’t really know the player.”
