Jameis Winston and No. 1 Florida State might have to play better for a return trip to the stadium where the next national title will be decided.
The national semifinals drew 79,444 AT&T Stadium, beating the previous record of 78,129 when Kentucky beat Michigan State in a regular-season game at Ford Field in Detroit on Dec. 13, 2003.
For the first time in decades, the University of Florida Gators football team will play an out-of-conference game outside the state of Florida.
The Florida State Seminoles have never been a team to shy away from playing the toughest non-conference opponents and that will be the case next year as well.
