Multiple leads weren’t followed up on in a timely manner, if at all.
The Florida State quarterback became the second straight freshman to win the Heisman on Saturday night, earning college football’s most prestigious individual award with a performance so spectacular and dominant that even a criminal investigation couldn’t derail his candidacy.
A lawyer for the woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault asked Friday for Florida’s attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems.

A prosecutor says Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not be charged in a sexual assault case.
The Tampa Bay Times is reporting that a Tallahassee detective pressured an alleged victim of sexual assault not to pursue the alleged assailant, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, because Tallahassee is a “big football town” and the victim’s life could “be made miserable.”
Northern Illinois looks to become the second back-to-back BCS Buster in the history of the BCS, joining TCU. Fresno State, currently the top team in the BCS-busting Mountain West Conference, is looking to reach their first BCS bowl game. So, who has the best shot?

This weekend, college football will shift its attention to the ACC. Playing in the shadows of the SEC the last few years, the ACC will offer this week’s game of the week when Clemson hosts Florida State.
