No. 1 Florida State, Winston look to improve

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles needed just 60 minutes to learn the 2014 season will be much different from their championship run a year ago.

Winston bullied his way to a Heisman Trophy by putting up numbers never seen from a freshman at the FBS level, but things didn't come easy in the season-opener against Oklahoma State.

The Seminoles struggled on third down and Winston threw more interceptions than touchdowns in a game for just the second during his career.

Winston will have to play better for the Seminoles to win another title, but he also needs more help from the skill positions than he got in the season-opener.

Florida State has the chance to work out some kinks when it hosts FCS opponent The Citadel on Saturday.
