The home opener turned out to be a disappointing loss as kicker Roberto Aguayo missed both a fieldgoal and PAT leading to the losing margin after a pair of two-point conversions failed.  Both offenses moved the ball well all day with Jameis Winston passing for over 400 yards and three scores, both Mike Evans and Adam Humphries recording 100-yard games.
