Also back at the helm for a second run of his own is Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, who is trying to be just the second player ever after Ohio State’s Archie Griffin to win a second Heisman.

The conjecture left many FSU faithful looking for further confirmation, and they may just have receive it. Heisman and crystal football-winning Winston’s father Antonor, told AL.com on Wednesday that the plan for the QB is “to be in college until he gets that degree” which means “one more year in baseball and two more years in football.” All FSU fans need now is to hear it from the signal caller himself.

5/28/14 – The price of Florida State Seminoles tickets have started to drop; in the last two and a half weeks, FSU vs. Clemson tickets and Florida State vs. Notre Dame tickets have fallen 3 percent and Seminoles vs. Gators tickets 6.25 percent. When the two latter rivals faced off last year, the result was a 30-point blowout from FSU (37-7); but, expect Florida to put more points on the board this year. However, Florida State’s dynamic offense led by sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston behind a veteran O-line (Cameron Erving, Tre’ Jackson) should prevail. While the Florida State Seminoles football schedule may be tougher than last year, fans will be treated to some premier games at Doak Campbell Stadium.
5/9/14 - Florida State plans on making another run at the title alongside their Heisman winning quarterback. Their road might be a little more difficult with the introduction of a four-team playoff this year.

FSU opens the season against Oklahoma State in a highly anticipated neutral site game at AT&T Stadium on Labor Day Weekend.

2/6/14 - The Florida State Seminoles certainly had a stunning year. Your National Champs made the #1 rank all look so easy: from the 14-0 all-time school record, to the ACC Championship game against Duke and the BCS National Championship game against Auburn, even when they fell behind, everyone knew the Seminoles would come back on top. Super-athlete QB Jameis Winston, recently named a baseball All-American, had arguably the best freshman season in college football history, topping off with the coveted Heisman Trophy. Led by fourth year coach Jimbo Fisher, FSU won its 17th conference title and 3rd national championship, so it’s no wonder the Seminoles garnered one of the top five recruiting classes in the country. FSU needed to replenish multiple offensive positions with the loss of WRs Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin, and RBs Deconta Freeman and James Wilder Jr. early to the NFL Draft; they did so, landing 5-star Dalvin Cook and 4-star Travis Rudolph. Defensively, the Seminoles lost Jacobbi McDaniel and Demonte McAllister to graduation and Timmy Jernigan, Christian Jones and Telvin Smith early, but filled their spots with prized recruits: Derrick Nnadi, Jacob Pugh, Delvin Purifoy (brother of corner Loucheiz), 5-star Kain Daub and Demarcus Christmas. After such a spectacular season spearheaded by a dynamic HC and young gifted QB, and prolific new recruits, are we looking at college football’s next dynasty? Get you Florida State Seminoles tickets now and find out!

Florida State Seminoles Football 2014 Season
What is there to say about last season's Florida State Seminoles Football program other than flawless
? The Seminoles kept a pristine record on the year, before taking the final BCS National Champion title in history. In 2014, the Florida squad returns nearly all of their starters from their winning campaign and are ready for a repeat. This time, however, they’ll have to muscle through the first-ever College Football Playoffs to do it. Preseason polls favor Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and Company’s chances of doing just that, ranking them in the No. 1 spot.
Coach Jimbo Fisher and the reigning ACC Champs come into 2014 without their star wideout or running back (Kelvin Benjamin and Devonte Freeman), though Rashad Greene and Karlos Williams should be ample support. Standout Telvin Smith, Lamarcus Joyner and Timmy Jernigan are gone, leaving new defensive coordinator Charles Kelly some work to do, though PJ Williams and the secondary remain the most formidable in the NCAA.
The top tier team has a tough schedule in 2014, starting with the season opener against Oklahoma State at AT&T Stadium in Texas. FSU tickets for this neutral site game start at $61. Don’t miss out on these nail-biters: Florida State-Clemson ($58 min. on 9/20), Florida State-Notre Dame ($118 min. on 10/18), and Florida State-Florida ($92 min. on 11/29). The road also holds a few possible struggles in waiting, with games at NC State, Syracuse, Louisville and Miami-Florida. Buy your Florida State Seminoles Football tickets now and see if this team can stay No. 1 from start to finish!
Florida State has a tough road schedule this year playing three of the top 25 most intriguing College Football games away this season – Florida State Seminoles at Florida Gators (avg. $276), Florida State Seminoles at Clemson Tigers (avg. $151), and Florida State Seminoles at Pittsburgh Panthers on Labor Day (avg. $83). The matchup against #8 Clemson will likely determine the Atlantic Division Champion and could quite possibly play a role in a National Championship berth. As usual, the Seminoles will close out the season playing in-state rival Florida; last year the matchup was the sixth-most watched game of the season. FSU will play ACC Football rival Miami Hurricanes on November 2 (avg. $164) at home; the game is the most expensive at Doak Campbell Stadium in 2013. The Seminoles will also play Maryland, NC State, and Syracuse from the ACC at home.
Last year, the Florida State Seminoles football team won the ACC Football Championship and ranked No. 10 in the country. Heading into the 2013 season, FSU is ranked No. 12 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and are favorites again to win the ACC Conference. The last time an ACC football team won a national title in football was Florida State in 1999.
Despite putting out a quality product on the field, Florida State Seminoles tickets are averaging just $79. FSU football tickets are second cheapest of teams ranked in the Top 20, behind Louisville who has a very weak home schedule. Overall ACC College Football tickets average $76 on the secondary market, the fifth most expensive conference in College Football.
