Jameis Winston showed no effects from a tumultuous week during No. 2 Florida State's 59-3 win against Syracuse on Saturday. The redshirt quarterback completed 19-of-21 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns as the Seminoles rolled during the Atlantic Coast Conference game.

News broke Wednesday that Winston was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that took place Dec. 7, 2012. The attention of college football enthusiasts moved away from his Heisman Trophy campaign to the many unanswered questions surrounding an investigation that is nearly a year old.

On the field, it was business as usual for the Seminoles (10-0, 8-0) on Saturday. They led 28-0 after the first quarter. Syracuse (5-5, 3-3) was held scoreless until late in the fourth quarter.

Florida State outgained the Orange 523-427.
