NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was thrilled with the way Jameis Winston ran the two-minute drill to win the BCS national championship.


That wasn't the case leading up to the big game.


Fisher says he kicked the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback out of the final practice before the Seminoles left Florida to travel to California.


Fisher says he took issue with how Winston was performing during a two-minute drill and sent him to the locker room. Fisher recalled Tuesday that Winston's mindset was drifting at the practice a week before the title game.


Winston led the top-ranked Seminoles on an 80-yard drive Monday night inside the Rose Bowl. He threw a 2-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left to beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 and finish off a perfect season for Florida State.
