On February 23, 2013, officials from both Florida State and Pittsburgh, as well as the commissioner of the Atlantic Coast Conference announced that the Seminoles and the Panthers would open the season at Heinz Field on Labor Day in what would be Pittsburgh's first game as a member of the ACC.[19]

In the game that would serve as the debut of Jameis Winston as quarterback, the Seminoles had to overcome an early deficit to defeat the Panthers, 41–13.[20] After Pitt scored on their first possession to take a touchdown lead, Florida State quickly responded on their first drive with a touchdown pass from Winston to Nick O'Leary to tie the game. Winston and O'Leary would connect twice more for touchdowns in a game where the offense rolled.

The first quarter would end with a tie game. Driving down the field, Florida State took their first lead of the game with another touchdown pass to Nick O'Leary.[21] Pittsburgh was able to close the gap to four points after a twenty-eight yard field goal.[21] The Seminoles would extend their lead with a rushing touchdown from Jameis Winston and a pass to Rashad Greene following an interception to give Florida State an eighteen-point lead at halftime.[21] The third quarter was mostly uneventful with a pair of field goals from Florida State and a single field goal from Pittsburgh.[21] The Seminoles held a three score lead going into the fourth quarter. Winston would add another touchdown in the final quarter.[21]

Following Pitt's touchdown on the first drive, Florida State kept them out of the end zone for the remainder of the game and held the Panthers to just two field goals. After a slow start for the defense, Pitt was held to only 297 yards of offense and one touchdown.

For his four touchdown and 356 all-purpose yardage rookie performance, Winston was recognized as the Davey O'Brien Quarterback of the Week[22] while tight end Nick O'Leary was named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week.[23] The victory improved Florida State's all-time record against the Panthers to 4–5.[24]

The game drew 4.5 million viewers and a 2.9 rating for ESPN, a three-year high for the network's Labor Day game. It was the third-most viewed game of college football's opening week.[25]

The Seminoles would strike first courtesy of a field goal from Roberto Aguayo, which would serve as the only score of the first quarter.[28] Going into the second quarter, the Seminoles held a three-point lead but they would eventually trail after Nevada scored the first touchdown of the game to take a four-point lead.[28] However, this would be the only points allowed by the Seminole defense. Florida State scored touchdowns on two consecutive drives[28] with two passes from quarterback Jameis Winston to Kenny Shaw and Rashad Greene to take a ten-point lead into the half.

Florida State rolled during the second half of the game, scoring thirty-one points in the third quarter and fourteen more points in the fourth quarter while holding Nevada scoreless.[28]

2012 Florida State, 33–20

Miami Leads Series: 31 – 26[18]

Pregame Line: Florida St −22

Following an emotional game, Florida State took on their rival, the Miami Hurricanes. In 2012, Florida State was victorious with a 33–20 win in Miami Gardens.[72] Miami last traveled to Tallahassee in 2011, where the Hurricanes lost to the Seminoles 23–19 in a game dominated by questionable calls from the referees.[73] College Gameday was on campus to witness the top ten clash,[74] marking the tenth time that the program has visited campus and the twenty-sixth appearance for the school.

In front of a record crowd,[75] Florida State defeated their rival for the fourth straight time, 41–14.[76]

The Seminoles scored the first points on the opening drive of the game when Devonta Freeman ran the ball into the endzone to give Florida State an early seven-point lead.[77] Miami then drove the ball down the field only to be stopped in the red zone; the Hurricanes then attempted a field goal that sailed wide left.[77] As the Seminoles were once again going down the field, Jameis Winston threw his first interception of the season that led to a Miami touchdown five plays later to tie the game at 7.[77] The first quarter ended in a tie game. Florida State responded by scoring the fourteen unanswered points courtesy of a rushing touchdown from James Wilder, Jr. and a receiving touchdown from Devonta Freeman.[78] Looking to go up by more before the half, Jameis Winston made his second mistake of the game with an interception that led to another Miami score, to make the score 21–14 at halftime.[78]

The Seminoles went on to dominate the second half, scoring twenty points while holding Miami scoreless.[79] James Wilder, Jr. and Devonta Freeman each scored a touchdown in the third quarter to give Florida State a fourteen-point lead heading into the final quarter.[80] In the fourth quarter, the Seminoles were held to two field goals from Roberto Aguayo,[80] one with only a minute remaining, to secure the win over their rival.

Florida State amassed 517 yards of offense while the defense held the Hurricanes to 275 total yards and a season-low 14 points. Quarterback Jameis Winston completed 21 of 29 passes for 325 yards and one touchdown. Devonta Freeman led the team in both rushing and receiving with 23 carries for 78 yards and two touchdowns along with six receptions for 98 yards and one touchdown.[81]

This was the 58th meeting between Florida State and Miami, the 8th meeting as conference opponents. The victory improved Florida State's all-time record against the Hurricanes to 27–31.[82]

After holding Wake Forest on the first drive of the game, Florida State scored on their first possession to take the lead.[89] Following their opening drive, Terrence Smith intercepted Tanner Price's pass and set up Devonta Freeman to score on a one-yard touchdown run.[89] Price was then picked off again by Mario Edwards, Jr. to set up another rushing touchdown from Karlos Williams.[89] In the second quarter, the Florida State defense continued their impressive performance when Nate Andrews returned an interception for a touchdown.[90] On the next play, Jalen Ramsey returned a fumble for a touchdown.[90] The offense put together another drive to go up by 42 points before halftime.[90]

Another interception would lead to a touchdown at the start of the second half.[91] A field goal extended the lead to 52 going into the final quarter.[91] Wake Forest's only points of the game came courtesy of a field goal in the fourth.[92] Florida State would add a score on special teams with a sixty-two yard punt return.[92]

In the final conference game of the year, Florida State faced the Syracuse Orange. The teams last met during the 2005 season in Tallahassee, a 38-14 win for the Seminoles.[96]

On a day when the 1993 national title team was recognized to honor the twentieth anniversary of Florida State's first national championship, the Seminoles continued their own run by defeating Syracuse 59-3.[97]

The Seminoles seized control of the game, scoring on the first drive of the game with a six-play drive culminating in a three-yard touchdown run from James Wilder, Jr. to put the Seminoles up early.[98] Florida State went on to score on three straight possessions, with touchdown runs from Levonte Whitfield and Devonta Freeman and a touchdown throw from Jameis Winston to Rashad Greene, to put the Seminoles up by twenty-eight going into the second quarter.[98] Florida State scored on their first possession in the second as well courtesy of a Jameis Winston pass to Kelvin Benjamin.[99] The Seminoles extended their lead with a 53-yard field goal from Roberto Aguayo to go into halftime with a 38-0 lead.[99]

Syracuse would get their first points of the game as a result of a ten-minute drive that ended in a field goal. [101] With the clock ticking down, Florida State held Syracuse in the end zone to preserve a fifty-six point homecoming win.

Florida State amassed 523 yards of offense while the defense held the Orange to 247 total yards. Amid speculation of an alleged sexual assault, quarterback Jameis Winston completed 19 of 21 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns, leading the team in passing; backup quarterback Sean Maguire, who played for much of the second half, also threw for a touchdown. Karlos Williams led the team in rushing with 4 carries for 78 yards. Kenny Shaw led the team in receiving with 7 receptions for 99 yards.[102]

Off the field incidents[edit]

On November 14, 2013, it was announced that the Florida State Attorney’s Office would re-open an investigation involving Freshman quarterback Jameis Winston with regards to sexual assault that was originally filed on December 7, 2012.[181] The incident involving Winston was originally investigated by the Tallahassee Police Department and closed in February 2013 with no charges being filed.[182][183] On November 20, 2013, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement confirmed that DNA provided by Winston matched a sample taken from the underwear of the victim accusing him of sexual battery.[184] On December 5, 2013, Willie Meggs announced that Winston would not be charged, citing lack of evidence.[185]
