(2) Florida State Survives (5) Notre Dame

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) -- Notre Dame's Everett Golson's potential game-winning touchdown was intercepted in the end zone as Florida State held on for a 31-27 win in a battle of top-five teams. For the second-ranked Seminoles (7-0), it was their 23rd straight win while the fifth-rated Irish are knocked from the ranks of the unbeatens.

Notre Dame (6-1) jumped on the board early, scoring when Golson found Corey Robinson for a touchdown in the first quarter. The Seminoles responded with a touchdown pass from Jameis Winston at the end of the quarter, starting an exciting contest on the right foot.

Both squads traded scores in the second, with the Irish taking a 17-10 lead into halftime. However, Winston came out of the locker room and immediately led Florida State down the field for the tying score when he found Rashad Greene for a 10-yard strike. After Notre Dame regained the lead on another pass from Golson, Karlos Williams answered with a game-tying touchdown run, making it a 24-24 game after three quarters.

Kyle Brindza would put Notre Dame back on top with his second field goal of the night, but the Irish defense could not hold a potent Seminoles offense. It would be Williams once again, scoring from 1-yard out, that gave Florida State their first lead of the night at 31-30 with under eight minutes to play.

After an Irish drive got stymied, the defense helped Notre Dame get one more chance at an upset. That seemed to have happened when Golson found Robinson for a third touchdown catch with less than 20 seconds remaining. However, an offensive pass interference penalty took the points off the board and forced the Irish in a 4th and goal situation. 

With time winding down, Golson scrambled to keep the play alive, but his pass to the end zone was picked off by Jacob Pugh. The Seminoles took a knee on the next play and celebrated their victory.

Winston Under Investigation for Autograph Signings

Winston Under Investigation for Autograph Signings

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Florida State University compliance department is investigating how an authentication site received more than 340 items reportedly signed by quarterback Jameis Winston. 

Head coach Jimbo Fisher apporached Winston after the team's 38-20 win at Syracuse and asked if the quarterback was paid for his signatures. Winston reportedly denied that he received any money and his head coach expressed no concern in a postgame press conference.

Of the items that have been authenticated, many include the Florida State logo. According to reports, 75 mini helmets, over 50 jerseys and more than 76 Florida State logo footballs are among the pieces of memorabilia listed for sale.

The website, James Spence Authentication, also received over 500 items signed by University of Georgia running back Todd Gurley. The school suspended Gurley indefinitely as it conducts its own investigation.

Winston is already facing a disciplinary hearing from the university regarding his alleged 2012 sexual assault case. The second-ranked Seminoles host fifth-ranked Notre Dame this weekend in a battle of unbeaten teams.

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) -- Without suspended quarterback Jameis Winston, the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles got some late-game heroics from backup Sean Maguire. The sophomore, making his first career start, led a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter before helping the Seminoles beat No. 22 Clemson, 23-17, in overtime.

Karlos Williams rushed into the endzone from 12 yards out to cap off the comeback, but it was Maguire's 74-yard strike to Rashad Greene that tied the game at 17-17 with six minutes left in regulation.

That touchdown was the high point in an up-and-down game for the sophomore signal caller. Maguire threw a pair of interceptions prior to the score, but did rack up 305 total passing yards. Neither team led by more than a touchdown, but the Tigers (1-2) did score 10 unanswered points in the first half to lead 10-3. 

Florida State did get the ball back late in the fourth, but opted to play for overtime. The Seminoles defense stood tall, stopping Adam Choice on fourth down to give FSU possession. Two plays later, Williams would score to end the game.

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Citing new findings in their investigation to his sexual and profane outburst at a student union meeting, Florida State announced late Friday they were suspending quarterback Jameis Winston for the full game against No. 22 Clemson on Saturday. Winston had originally been suspended for only the first half.

"Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," interim Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement.

Winston, the reigning Heisman trophy winner, was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus earlier in the week. The top ranked Seminoles will start sophomore Sean Maguire against the Tigers. Maguire has completed 12 of 26 career passes while at Florida State.

(1) Florida State Survives Scare From Oklahoma State

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- The defending national champions got their first scare of the year in their season opener, holding off Oklahoma State 37-31 on Saturday. The Florida State Seminoles (1-0) had led 17-0 in the second half but the Cowboys (0-1) closed the gap to 27-24 late and had a chance to take the lead.

"We all preached it, but I do think they felt the pressure of being No. 1. I do," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. "Now I think we can relax and go play football."

Sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 370 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for one as well. The reigning Heisman trophy winner also threw a pair of interceptions that helped keep Oklahoma State hanging around. 

The Cowboys J.W. Walsh scampered 24 yards for a touchdown, making it a three-point game, before ultimately leading a drive back into Seminoles territory. However, Walsh fumbled when he was flipped into the air by Florida State's P.J. Williams. Winston then connected with Rashad Green for a 50-yard scoring pass, sealing the deal.
