ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jameis Winston threw for 370 yards and scored on a sparkling 28-yard run, and No. 1 Florida State held off Oklahoma State 37-31 to begin defending its national title.

Playing on the same field where this year's national champion will be crowned, Winston wasn't nearly as efficient as he was in the college debut that jump-started his Heisman Trophy season a year ago. But he made plays when it mattered.

The Cowboys were 19-point...
