Jameis Winston threw an early pick, Nevada scored an early touchdown ... and then the universe corrected itself swiftly and violently.

If we're nitpicking, I could point out that FSU's passing downs success rate was quite unimpressive. Perhaps that's something to watch moving forward, but when you've got a 74 percent success rate on standard downs, you're not facing enough passing downs for that to matter. Florida State running backs could not be stopped, and Winston didn't throw an incompletion after his early pick. This was a romp.
