Watch: Jameis Winston slips, throws ball backwards as FSU implodes

Friday January 2nd, 2015

Things are not going well for Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles in the Rose Bowl.

Already down 39-20 in the third quarter and facing a 4th-and-5, Winston tried to scramble and ended up slipping and falling while fumbling the ball backwards. Oregon's Tony Washington then picked it up and easily ran it in for a touchdown to go up 45-20, and with the ball careening towards him, the referee near the play even fell:

Twitter's reaction was predictably amazing:

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher, meanwhile, was not amused.

Winston would go on to throw an interception on the next possession, and the Seminoles' first possession of the fourth quarter would end in a fumble as well. 

Oregon would go on to win 59-20, snapping Florida State's 29-game winning streak.
