Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston has been living up to the hype in his first year on the field thanks to an incredible season-opener against Pittsburgh, and now he is focused on continuing to put together a Heisman worthy campaign this weekend when he takes on the Nevada Wolf Pack.

Winston is very eager to get back on the field, but when Winston spoke about why he is so excited to play Nevada it may not be for the reason you think.

From ESPN’s David Hale:

That’s right, Winston is looking forward to a showdown with the Wolf Pack so that he can witness a beautiful mullet first hand.

Nevada defensive end Brock Hekking is the player rocking the mullet, so he will be hoping to get Winston very familiar with his flowing head of hair throughout the game.

So, just how great is Hekking’s mullet? Here is a visual:

If you are a mullet fan, then you can certainly see why Winston is excited to go head-to-head with this man.

In the end, we can expect to see Winston get the better of the Nevada defense and we may get plenty of shots of Hekking’s mullet chasing down Winston from behind.
