Winston leads FSU back from deficit against BC

It seems like every year, Florida State lays an egg against at least one overmatched ACC foe.

Last year, the Seminoles were upset by NC State. The year before, it was Wake Forest and Virginia. The year before THAT, it was North Carolina.

But those FSU teams didn’t have Jameis Winston.

Just when it looked like history might repeat itself against Boston College on Saturday, the freshman quarterback stepped up.

The Eagles led the No. 6 Seminoles, 17-3, with 11 minutes left to play in the first half. The defense was struggling, the run game was non-existent and Winston was off to a slow start.

Then he got hot.

After starting out two of six passing, Winston completed his last seven throws, with three of them going for touchdowns. The last one came on an amazing Hail Mary play where Winston somehow avoided a sack and chucked the ball 55 yards into the waiting arms of Kenny Shaw.

FSU went into the half leading, 24-17, with Winston going 9 of 13 for 217 yards and the three scores. Disaster averted?

Stay tuned.

    Is he this years Johnny Football? He’s has had some just SPECTACULAR TD passes…

    He’s obviously not the same style of player that Manziel is, but he’s a fish making crazy plays in a big pond.
