CFB Recap: FSU Stakes Claim to #1 After Whipping Florida

The game was over shortly after Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo drilled a 49-yard field goal in the 1st quarter.

FSU scored as needed and the University of Florida--well, they barely scored at all as the Seminoles beat their in-state rivals 37-7 in Gainesville.

Jameis Winston threw for 327 yards and 3 TD's, all to WR Kelvin Benjamin as Florida State climbs to 12-0 and after Alabama's loss, likely becomes the #1 team in all the land.

As for Florida, the loss, their 7th straight drops them to 4-8 and an offseason of change. The Gators offense, injuries aside struggled in every game and the defense while good, wasn't good enough to make a difference.

FSU moves on to the ACC title game next Saturday vs. Duke, a game where they likely will be heavily favored. And while the specter of Winston possibly being charged in a 2012 incident still hangs over the team, it doesn't appear it will change their status.
