Gainesville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Jameis Winston threw three touchdown
passes to Kelvin Benjamin as the second-ranked Florida State Seminoles
concluded an undefeated regular season with a 37-7 victory over rival
Florida.

Winston continued to put any distractions from an ongoing sexual assault
investigation aside, completing 19-of-31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin
accounted for the bulk of the yards as he totaled a career-high 212 on nine
receptions.

Devonta Freeman added a rushing touchdown for Florida State (12-0).

The last 12-0 Florida State team reached that mark by capturing the 1999
national championship. The current incarnation is now seemingly a win over
Duke in the ACC championship game away from contesting for another national
title. Whether Winston will be available to play is unclear.

For the first time this season, the Seminoles failed to score at least 40
points. They had tied the 2005 Texas squad’s single-season FBS mark for the
most consecutive 40-point games.

Skyler Mornhinweg connected on 20-of-25 passes, but had just 115 yards and a
touchdown for the Gators (4-8), who wrapped up their first losing season since
1979 on a seven-game slide.
