Game Result: W 48-34 at Boston College, Sept. 28
Why It’s Here
Surprisingly, the Seminoles trailed early in this game. In fact, the team was down 17-3 at one point in the second quarter; however, quarterback Jameis Winston answered with not one, not two, but three touchdown passes in the final 10 minutes of the half.
The third was a thing of beauty.
With just two seconds remaining in the half, Florida State had the ball at its 45. As Winston dropped back, the four-man rush of the Eagles broke through, and it looked like the half would end with a sack.
As he has done on a consistent basis in 2013, however, Winston broke free of the would-be tacklers, regained his footing and launched a ball deep toward the end zone. Somehow, the ball landed perfectly in the hands of wide receiver Kenny Shaw, who fell into the end zone for an improbable 55-yard touchdown to close the half.
It’s plays like this that helped Winston win the 2013 Heisman Trophy, but none stood out more than this particular strike.
