Jameis Winston Adds to Heisman Resume with Dominant Win over Miami
The freshman was at it again on Saturday.
This time the victim was the Miami Hurricanes as Jameis Winston led the Florida State Seminoles to a massive 41-14 victory over their bitter in-state rivals.
Winston struggled in the first half with two costly interceptions that led to Miami touchdowns, but those ended up being the only points the Hurricanes would score on the night.
The two touchdowns are an issue, but Winston still finished with 325 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Any time that sort of line is considered bad against the No. 7 team in the nation, it's clear the guy is a Heisman candidate.
Even better, Winston's Heisman candidacy may come under fire because it was not his typical eye-popping stat night, but put it in perspective—a freshman threw for over 300 yards and only fired eight incompletions against a top 10 team in what is his worst game to date.
Yeah, Winston's Heisman chances are just fine.
Florida State remains undefeated and has a legit shot at a national championship. While wins should mean little in the definition of a team sport, it remains something Heisman voters look at when making the all-important decision.
Winston has the perfect combination of wins, stats and more. One questionable performance that may very well be the low light of his Heisman résumé here won't change things. If it were anybody else, the stats would be considered acceptable.
If this is as bad as it gets for Winston, they might as well already hand him the trophy.
