TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jameis Winston's passing was almost perfect in his college debut working with a receiving corps that was flawless as 10th-ranked Florida State opened its season with an impressive road victory.

Winston's record-setting debut on the collegiate scene showcased his pinpoint accuracy as he narrowly missed perfection with a 25 of 27 passing performance to a group of sure-handed receivers.

"Those guys were where they were supposed to be, catching the ball, making plays in critical situations," coach Jimbo Fisher said of his receiving corps. "I think they did a great job of making (Winston) comfortable and allowing him to function."

The Seminoles are off this week and host Nevada on Sept. 14.

But against Pittsburgh, the coaches raved about the passing game.

Neither Fisher or receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey, an All American wideout at Florida State in 1990, could recall a game where a receiver didn't drop a pass.

The Seminoles' starting wide receivers combined for 17 catches good for 293 yards, an average of 17.2 yards per catch in Monday's 41-13 victory at Pittsburgh.

"They made plays," Fisher said. "They got to where they were supposed to be at the time they were supposed to be there which allowed him (Winston) to get to his progressions very well."

Eight different Seminoles made catches in the game.

"Those guys ran very good routes," Fisher said. "Those guys were where they were supposed to be, catching the ball, making plays in critical situations."

The team's leading receiver, junior Rashad Greene, latched onto eight passes for 126 yards and his 14th career receiving touchdown to move into 20th place on the school's career list for scoring aerials.

Another junior, tight end Nick O'Leary, had his biggest career night in the opener with three touchdown grabs among his four catches. The three TD catches matched his total from last season.

"I didn't know he (Winston) was going to call on me that many times in the red zone but I'm glad he did," O'Leary said. "I knew I was going to be more of a part of the offense this year."

The veteran of the group, senior speedster Kenny Shaw, caught four passes for 94 yards and 6-5 sophomore wideout Kelvin Benjamin had five catches for 73 yards.

Shaw, who surpassed the 1,000 mark in receiving yardage in the opener, has nothing but praise for his quarterback's accuracy.

"He gets the job done, even if he's only 19," Shaw said.

Benjamin and O'Leary each said Winston makes it easy for them to catch the ball.

"He's got more zip on it so once it hits your hands it sticks," Benjamin said. "Most of them are right there for you so you just have to reel them in."

O'Leary agreed.

"He knows when to light up and when to dart it in there," O'Leary said. "Most of them were right to us."

While Winston has said he appreciates that praise that he's received, it's all about team to him.

"We're not selfish," Winston said. "We're trying to build that mentality where it's us. If we can get that us factor, who is going to beat us?"
