FSU’s Jameis Winston is trying to stay humble



Despite the national hype surrounding quarterback Jameis Winston after Florida State’s blowout victory over Pittsburgh last Monday, the redshirt freshman is doing his best not to let it affect his preparation or his team.

“I’m focused on [Nevada],” Winston said on Wednesday. “I know for my team’s sake — and I know for everybody just looking around this program — it’s one game, so I’ve just got to move on.”

Winston was 25 of 27 for 356 yards and four touchdowns against the Panthers.

• With the Wolf Pack bringing its up-tempo offense to Tallahassee on Saturday, FSU’s defense is likely to have its conditioning tested.

“A lot of these guys are veterans, so we know when we get out there what it’s going to be like,” linebacker Telvin Smith said. “We’ve been in that situation before with the hurry-up offenses and the high-tempo offenses. The biggest thing this week is you have to have a sense of urgency.”
