Jameis Winston is in his 'sanctuary' at Rose Bowl

Dec 27, 2014 7:35 PM

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Jameis Winston says football is his "sanctuary" from his off-the-field troubles, and the Florida State quarterback is hoping he can stay there for two more games.

In his first public appearance since he was cleared of violating Florida State's student code of conduct in an alleged sexual assault, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner said he's only thinking about academics and the No. 2 Seminoles' meeting with Oregon in the Rose Bowl on Wednesday.

At the Disney California Adventure park, Winston made no extensive comments about the latest step in the lengthy proceedings around the allegations stemming from an encounter two years ago.

The ruling likely means Winston is free to chase another title into the championship game Jan. 12, if the Seminoles beat Oregon.
