Well, it was almost more of the same as the ‘Noles were able to pull this victory off on the first sub-par outing for their Heisman-hopeful quarterback, Jameis Winston.
People have been asking if this young man was human, and tonight we found out he was. Winston threw two interceptions, both of which were turned into touchdowns by Miami, in the first half to make it just a seven-point deficit at the break.
Winston did finish with another 300+ yard game, though, finishing up with 325 total through the air.
So, with Winston not playing like himself, the FSU ground game stepped up in a big way. Devonta Freeman finished with 78 yards on 23 carries with two scores, and also added in a receiving touchdown. James Wilder Jr. also found the end zone twice in this one.
Now, the Florida State Seminoles and their fans turn their attention to Thursday night’s game between Stanford and Oregon. If the Cardinal can knock off the Ducks, then the ‘Noles would be in prime position to play for the national championship.
