FLORIDA STATE

In a battle between two ranked teams, only one team looked like it deserved to be there.  Behind Jameis Winston’s five touchdown passes, No. 8 Florida State defeated No. 25 Maryland, 63-0.  It was the second time that the Seminoles have scored 60 or more points this season.  It was also the largest shutout over a ranked team since 2000.  The previous high was between two future ACC teams.  Here are the six best all-time in this category:

  • 2013: No. 8 Florida State over No. 25 Maryland,  63-0
