Has anyone been more consistent than quarterback Jameis Winston?
From Week 1 to last week’s ACC title matchup, the redshirt freshman has conquered every obstacle in his path. Furthermore, he’s done so with flying colors.
Against Duke last Saturday, Winston threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns while adding another 59 yards and a score on 10 carries. It followed up yet another sensational effort against Florida and its tough secondary the week before (19-of-31, 327 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT).
Now, Winston will take on the Tigers in the BCS title game.
Through 13 games, the team ranks No. 102 against the pass (259.3 YPG). Auburn has given up 17 passing touchdowns and allows a little more than seven yards per attempt.
It would be surprising if Winston didn’t have his way in this one.
Winston gets the job done.
Throughout the season, the Bessemer, Ala. native has faced some tough secondaries. However, he has had success each and every time.
Against a Tigers secondary that has been vulnerable to the pass, don’t expect Winston to struggle.
