Tallahassee, FL (SportsNetwork.com) -
Upon further review, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not play against Clemson on Saturday.
Florida State announced late Friday night that the reigning Heisman Trophy winner will sit the entire game. The school had originally suspended Winston for just the first half after he made a lewd comment about women on campus earlier this week.
"Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," the school said in a release.
Fresno State free fall

This time last year, Fresno State football was at the start of something good, but the Bulldogs have lost their bite here in 2014.
After three games a season ago, not only was Fresno State undefeated, but it had also gotten off on the right foot in Mountain West Conference play by defeating league favorite, Boise State, by a score of 41-40. Granted, the victory came by the narrowest of margins, but it was still a tally in the win column regardless, setting the Bulldogs up for some impressive accomplishments the rest of the way.
The Bulldogs, with quarterback Derek Carr at the helm, rattled off 10 wins in as many games and became one of those teams from outside the power conferences that the BCS had to keep on eye on because they were setting themselves up as the latest underdog to crash the party.
