LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Florida State star Jameis Winston has won the Davey O'Brien Award, given to the nation's top quarterback.

The redshirt freshman was presented with the award Thursday during the 23rd College Football Awards Show at Disney.

Winston, the Heisman Trophy favorite, hopes to join the past three Davey O'Brien winners, who all went on to take home the Heisman in the same year.

He led top-ranked Florida State to a 13-0 record and a berth in the BCS national championship game against Auburn. Along the way, Winston completed 67.9 percent of his passes for 3,820 yards and 38 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.

He becomes the third Seminoles player to win the award.

Winston was selected over fellow finalists AJ McCarron of Alabama and Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.
