Heisman Watch 2013: Florida State QB Jameis Winston struggling against Miami at the half


Halftime has hit in Tallahassee in the primetime showdown between the Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles and this game, so far, has not been what many expected.

Florida State came into this one ranked number three in the country and a 21.5-point favorite over the undefeated and seventh-ranked ‘Canes and were expected to blow Miami off the field early, much like Clemson two weeks ago.

Well, that hasn’t been the case so far. Florida State does have the lead, but it’s very slim at 21-14.

Much of that has to do with the struggles of their redshirt freshman QB phenom, Jameis Winston. With the way he’s started his career off this season, many have asked of he’s human.

Yes, he is, if that first half was any indication.

Through 30 minutes, Winston is just 9-of-15 for 161 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions–the first two-interception half of his young career.

What’s even worse for the ‘Noles is that both of those Winston turnovers were turned into touchdowns by Miami.

Can Winston regroup and pick this up in the second half?
