(GAINESVILLE, FL) — Jameis Winston threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns as No. 2 Florida State capped off an undefeated regular season with a 37-7 rout of Florida on Saturday.
The Seminoles (12-0, 8-0 ACC) are undefeated in the regular season for the first time since 1999. They will face Duke next week in the ACC championship game. If they win they all but likely guarantee themselves a spot in the BCS national title game.
All three of Winston’s touchdown passes went to Kelvin Benjamin, who caught nine passes for 212 yards in the victory.
“Tremendous,” Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher said. “KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and he’s starting to develop into that guy.”
DeVonta Freeman rushed 13 times for 44 yards and a score as Florida State outgained the Gators 456-193 in total yards.
Florida (4-8, 3-5 SEC) lost their final seven games and ended its worst season since 1979. They missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990.
