Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was named the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner on Saturday night, marking the second straight season the award has gone to a redshirt freshman quarterback.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, also a finalist, became the first freshman to win the award in 2012.

Winston won the award with 2,205 points, 1,501 more points than Alabama’s AJ McCarron. It’s the seventh-largest margin of victory in Heisman history. And while Winston won in a landslide, winning each region of the vote, he was left off 115 ballots.

Winston led Florida State to a 13-0 regular season finish that included the school’s second straight ACC Championship and a bid to the BCS title game against Auburn in Pasadena. With Winston at the helm of the offense, the Seminoles tore through their schedule with a margin of victory of more than 42 points per game.
