Florida State's Jameis Winston Pushes Referee Away vs. BC, Doesn't Get Flagged

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has no time for referees trying to get set.

During Saturday's game against the Boston College Eagles, Winston was trying to get under center, but a referee was in the way. Winston pushed the official out of the way and was somehow not penalized for doing so.



Mike Pereira from FOX Sports believed that Winston should have been ejected from the game, saying:

Contact with an official can clearly lead to an ejection. Webster was doing his job, which was to hold the snap until the referee cleared him in this situation. Winston clearly pushes him out of the way so he can get the snap off.
That's a foul, folks.

Update: November 23

The ACC reportedly says the incident did not warrant a penalty.
