The Florida State Seminoles were not caught looking ahead to a future game against Miami as they took care of North Carolina State 49-17 on Saturday.
Jameis Winston played only one drive in the second half after a solid first half performance, during which he threw for three touchdowns as Florida State took a 42-0 lead into halftime.
FSU also got their running game going, as Devonta Freeman and Karlos Williams both found the end zone and had solid days on the ground.
For NC State the game was not as close as the scoreboard would indicate. They kept their starters in the game for the entire second half against backup defensive players for FSU, and managed to find the end zone thanks to do-it-all running back Shadrach Thornton.
