PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – If Jameis Winston heads to the NFL as everybody expects, the Florida State quarterback will remember the Rose Bowl as the site of his greatest achievement and his most disappointing day.
   
Just under a year after the Seminoles won the national championship on the same hallowed turf, Winston lived a nightmare against Oregon on Thursday.
   
Winston threw an interception and made a comical fumble during the Seminoles’ disastrous second half in their 59-20 loss to the Ducks in the first College Football Playoff semifinal.
   
The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner was outplayed by current trophy-holder Marcus Mariota, but Winston only deserved a portion of the blame for the thorough thrashing received by the Seminoles, who had the worst defensive game in the 101-edition history of the Granddaddy of Them All.
