Winston, Florida State Smack Clemson

Florida State

Quarterback Jameis Winston and Florida State are the real deal.

The Seminoles’ redshirt freshman Winston, threw for three touchdowns and 444 yards as No. 5 Florida State beat No. 3 Clemson 51-14 Saturday night.

After that win some people are saying that the Seminoles should be No. 1.

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

This was the hottest game in the Atlantic Coast Conference so far this year, which was played in front of a crowd 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.”

Tajh Boyd threw two interceptions for Clemson, and fumbled the ball in the first quarter. That fumble was returned 37 yards for a touchdown by Mario Edwards. Clemson (6-1, 4-1) turned the ball over four times, with the first one coming on the first play of the game.

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

“We know we’re better than how we played, but nobody cares about that,” Swinney said.
