Jameis Winston threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns and No. 3 Florida State scored 35 points in the first quarter on the way to a 49-17 victory against North Carolina State on Saturday.

Winston completed 16-of-26 passes with one interception and left the game after the opening series of the second half.

Rashad Greene topped 100 yards receiving for the third consecutive game with eight receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown for the Seminoles (7-0, 5-0).

The Wolfpack upset the Seminoles in Raleigh, N.C., last season, but this year it was no contest as Florida State put on a show for its old coach. Hall of Famer Bobby Bowden was honored at Doak Campbell Stadium.

N.C. State (3-4, 0-4) had quarterback Brandon Mitchell back for the first time since breaking his foot in the season opener. He completed 17-of-33 passes for 129 yards with two interceptions.
