No. 11 FSU 41, Pittsburgh 13

Seminoles off to a fast start

 

Redshirt freshman Jameis Winston had an impressive debut as FSU opened its season with a rout of Pittsburgh.

Associated Press

Redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston passed for 356 yards and four touchdowns in a spectacular debut and No. 11 Florida State dominated Pittsburgh 41-13 on Monday night.

Winston was nearly flawless, completing 25 of 27 passes and running for 25 yards and a score as the Seminoles gave the Panthers a rude welcome to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 126 yards and a score and Nick O’Leary hauled in three touchdown passes for Florida State.

The Panthers had been pointing to the opener from the moment the program announced the move from the Big East to the ACC nearly two years ago. Playing in front of a rare sell-out, Pitt simply couldn’t keep up with the defending league champions.

Tom Savage passed for 201 yards and a touchdown for Pitt but also threw a pair of interceptions.
