Winston throws 4 interceptions in Florida State victory

Standard

This Saturday in Tallahassee, Florida, the Florida State Seminoles defeated the Florida Gators 24-19.

Winston being the first player in the FBS this season to throw 3 interceptions in the first quarter, also set a new mark this year by being the first quarterback to win while throwing 4 interceptions in a game.

Winston was under duress the entire game as he completed just 12/24 passes for 125 yards.

Behind true freshman running back Dalvin Cook’s 144 yard performance, the Seminoles managed to claw their way back from a 9-0 deficit.

The momentum swung in the Seminoles direction when senior linebacker Terrance Smith intercepted Florida quarterback Treon Harris, and returned it 94 yards for a touchdown with 1:12 remaining in the first quarter.

Florida’s Harris also struggled in the game, completing 13/32 passes for 169 yards and 2 interceptions.

Florida State would score the next 14 points by a pair of Nick O’Leary receiving scores.
