ATLANTA (AP) — Everett Golson is not with Florida State for its Peach Bowl game against Houston.

The school announced on Saturday after practice for the Dec. 31 game that the quarterback did not make the trip due to personal reasons.

Golson, who was a graduate transfer from Notre Dame, played in nine games and started eight as he led the ninth-ranked Seminoles (10-2) to wins in their first six. He lost the starting job to Sean Maguire though in November after throwing three interceptions in 17 attempts. He also committed turnovers on four of seven drives, starting with the fourth quarter of a Oct. 24 loss at Georgia Tech.

Golson finishes the season completing 67.1 percent of his passes (147 of 219) for 1,778 yards with 11 touchdowns and three interceptions.
