Florida State redshirt freshman Jameis Winston earned his second ACC Rookie of the Week honor and redshirt freshman kicker Roberto Aguayo picked up ACC Specialist of the Week announced by the league office Monday.


Winston completed his final 13 pass attempts of the day after a first-half interception to finish 15-of-18 for 214 yards, with two touchdown throws in Florida State’s 62-7 win over Nevada. Winston led the Seminoles to 45 unanswered points from 3:21 left in the first half until 58 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Winston led a streak of six consecutive touchdown drives, which included his two touchdown throws and was capped by his 10-yard scoring run with 4:41 left in the third quarter for a 45-7 lead.

The heir to NCAA and ACC all-time scoring leader Dustin Hopkins, Aguayo remained perfect on the season on both field goals and PATs. He converted field goal of attempts from 23 and 33 yards in the win over Nevada and is now 4-of-4 on the season. Aguayo capped his career-best 14-point performance by converting all eight of his PAT attempts and is 13-of-13 on the season. He is the first FSU kicker to convert his first 17 combined kick attempts since Derek Schmidt (1984), who set the record with 29 consecutive made kicks to start his career.
