Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston finished ahead of Johnny Manziel, AJ McCarron, Jordan Lynch, Tre Mason and Andre Williams in the 2013 Heisman Trophy voting.

|Jameis Winston, FSU||668||84||33||2,205|
|AJ McCarron, Alabama||79||162||143||704|
|Jordan Lynch, NIU||40||149||140||558|
|Andre Williams, BC||29||127||129||470|

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.
While Florida State's dominance was a team effort aided by Winston, the redshirt freshman stood out from the rest of the competition with impressive individual accomplishments as well. Winston finished with 3,820 passing yards and 38 passing touchdowns -- an ACC record and FBS freshman record -- while maintaining the nation's highest pass efficiency rating (190.06).
Winston joins Charlie Ward (1993) and Chris Weinke (2000) as the only Seminoles to win the award. Florida State becomes one of just ten schools to have at least three Heisman Trophy winners -- Notre Dame (7), Ohio State (7), USC (6) and Oklahoma (5) are the only schools with more.
