During his time at Florida State, Winston notched 7,964 passing yards and 65 touchdowns, leading the Seminoles to an undefeated record and a national championship in 2013. In his second season, he led the Seminoles to an undefeated regular season before losing to Oregon in the Rose Bowl.
After his time at Florida State, Winston was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was the starter for the Bucs until 2019, when he joined the New Orleans Saints.
Across his career, Winston has recorded 22,063 yards and 141 touchdowns.
Florida State is looking for its first championship since Winston led them to one in 2013. The Seminoles seem poised for the College Football Playoff, but have to finish the regular season strong before playing in the ACC Championship.
