Same week, same story for head coach Jimbo Fisher and this 2013 version of the Florida State Seminoles as they continue the quest to Pasadena.
On Homecoming weekend and with a large portion of the 1993 national championship winning team in attendance, the ‘Noles cruised easily to a 59-3 victory over the visiting Syracuse Orange.
The score was 38-0 at the half, and once again, Jameis Winston did not play the second half in this one. With the absence of Jacob Coker for the rest of the year, Sean Maguire got some reps at quarterback, and even tossed a touchdown of his own.
As for Jameis, when he was in, he was spectacular once again. The redshirt freshman phenom went 19-of-21 for 277 yards and two touchdowns.
Florida State also had four running backs with double-digits on the ground. Karlos Williams led the way in that category with 78 yards on four carries, while freshman Levonte Whitfield came in second with his 74 yards on his one carry in the first quarter which went straight to the house for the touchdown. Kermit is starting to emerge as an overall threat for this team, as everyone expected.
The defensive unit once again did a phenomenal job. They were able to hold Syracuse to 247 total yards on offense.
