Tallahassee, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Upon further review, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not play against Clemson on Saturday.
Florida State announced late Friday night that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner will sit the entire game. The school had originally suspended Winston for just the first half after he made a lewd comment about women on campus earlier this week.
"Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," the school said in a release.
Several students tweeted on Tuesday that Winston shouted an obscene phrase from an Internet video. Winston apologized for his actions.
Tuesday's incident was the latest in a growing list of off-the-field news for Winston, who was investigated in 2013 for sexual assault -- a Florida State Attorney declined to press charges. He was also suspended from the baseball team after being cited for stealing crab legs and crawfish in April.
Backup quarterback Sean Maguire will start in Winston's place for the No. 1 Seminoles against the 22nd-ranked Tigers.
