Consecutive Games with TD Pass by Winston

Jameis Winston’s 30-yard touchdown pass to Nick O’Leary in the second quarter extended the redshirt sophomore’s streak of throwing at least one touchdown pass to 24 consecutive games.

Consecutive Games with a Catch for Greene

Rashad Greene’s two-yard catch in the first quarter extended his streak of consecutive games with a reception to a school-record 40 straight games. The mark eclipsed the previous school record of 39 straight games held by Rodney Smith (2009-12).

Greene Is Number One

With Rashad Greene’s last catch of the night, Greene broke Ron Sellers' total receiving yard record of 3598 yards. His catch for 15 yards put him at 3613 career yards and 254 career catches. With Rashad Greene’s 25-yard reception to end the first quarter, the senior wideout moved ahead of Peter Warrick (3,517) for second place on the all-time career receiving yards list. The catch was also Greene’s 77th of the season, a new single-season career-high, and the second most catches in a single-season in school history. Greene’s previous high for catches in a season was 76 set in 2013. Greene finished the game with eight catches for 106 yards.

Beatty Booms Another, Gets One Inside the 20

Cason Beatty’s first punt of the game was a good one, as the junior punter boomed a 54-yard punt in the third quarter. It marked his seventh punt of 50 or more yards this season. Beatty has registered a punt of at least 50 yards in his last five games. Five of Beatty’s last seven punts have covered at least 45 yards. In the fourth quarter, Beatty placed his 13th punt of the season inside the 20-yard line, forcing the Eagles to start the drive at their own 8-yard line.

Spreading the Love

Jameis Winston has completed passes to seven or more pass catchers seven times this year. In Saturday’s game against Boston College, Winston found seven different pass catchers.

20 Completions

For the 11th straight game, Jameis Winston completed 20 or more passes.

O’Leary’s TD Catch Moves Up ACC Charts

Nick O’Leary’s 30-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter was his 14th career touchdown catch. He now sits second all-time among ACC tight ends for touchdown catches. The ACC record holder is Virginia’s Heath Miller (2002-04) with 20.

Roberto Connects

Roberto Aguayo finished the game with eight points (2 FG, 2 PATs) pushing his season totals to 20-for-22 in field goals and 46-for-46 in PAT’s. His career numbers moved to 42-for-45 in field goals and 139-for-139 in PAT’s. Aguayo connected on a field goal of 37 yards in the second quarter, before hitting the 26 yard game-winner with :03 left.

Andrews on the Tackles

Nate Andrews finished Saturday’s game with a career-high 12 tackles (seven solo), surpassing his previous career-high of 10, which he accomplished twice, the last time against Notre Dame on Oct. 18.

Scoring on Opening Drive

Florida State received the opening kickoff and marched 75 yards on 14 plays, capped off with a Karlos Williams three-yard touchdown run. The last time FSU scored on its opening drive was at Syracuse on Oct. 11 – a Mario Pender 12-yard touchdown run. It marked the fifth time in 2014 that Florida State has scored on its opening drive (previous four: Oklahoma State, The Citadel, NC State and Syracuse).

Today’s Captains

The captains for Florida State against Boston College were: Nick Waisome, Jarred Haggins, Desmond Hollin, and Josue Matias.
