Jameis Winston accounts for 3 TDs, No. 10 Seminoles hammer Nevada 62-7 in home opener

Jameis Winston accounted for three touchdowns, Florida State's four tailbacks all scored and the No. 10 Seminoles routed Nevada 62-7 Saturday.

Florida State (2-0) looked just as good in its home opener as it did to start the season 12 days ago.

The Seminoles thumped Pitt 41-13 on the road, a game in which Winston grabbed headlines with a nearly flawless performance.

He shared the spotlight Saturday with his running backs.

Devonta Freeman ran nine times for 109 yards and a touchdown. James Wilder Jr. added 45 yards and a score.

Karlos Williams may have been the most impressive of the bunch. The former safety, who moved to offense after the opener, ran eight times for 110 yards and a score. His 65-yard scamper made it 31-7 early in the third quarter.

Winston, who threw two TD passes in the first half, scored on a 10-yard run in the third. That was his final play of the day.
