Tallahassee, FL - The sixth-ranked Florida State football team was named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl National Team of the Week on Monday following the Seminoles’ 63-0 victory over No. 25 Maryland.

The victory over the Terrapins was the largest shutout win ever over a ranked team in college football history.

FSU improved to 5-0 (3-0 in the ACC) by racking up 614 total yards and nine touchdowns against a Maryland team that entered the game ranked No. 6 in the country in total defense.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston also picked up four more honors on Monday.

The Bessemer, Ala., native was named the Dave O’Brien Quarterback of the Week after throwing for season highs in passing yards (393) and touchdowns (five) while completing 23-of-32 passes and tossing zero interceptions in the shutout win over Maryland.

The Manning Award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, announced Winston as one of eight “Stars of the Week.” Fans can go to the Allstate Sugar Bowl Facebook page to vote for who they think was the best performance from the past weekend. Fan voting closes Thursday at 11 a.m. The top vote-getter will be announced as the Manning Award Player of the Week.

The College Football Performance Awards named Winston the National Performer of the Week and the National Quarterback of the week.

Junior tight end Nick O’Leary collected Honorable Mention Tight End of the Week accolades from the CFPA.

Winston also nabbed ACC Rookie of the Week honors for the third time this season. Last week Winston was named the ACC’s Offensive Back of the Week. He has received a weekly award from the ACC in four of five weeks this season.

On Sunday, Winston was named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week and the Athlon Sports National Player of the Week and Freshman of the Week.
