Golson went 12-0 in his first year as a starter for the Fighting Irish in 2012, leading them to the National Championship Game but ultimately losing to Alabama. He was suspended from the team in 2013 for being academically ineligible, but returned to the team in 2014 and led the team to an 8-5 record and a win in the Music City Bowl over LSU.
Due to turnover problems, Notre Dame was prepared to move on from Golson even though he had a year of eligibility left, so Golson decided to transfer and will not be forced to sit out a year per normal NCAA regulations due to his having graduated.
Golson joins an FSU team that grew accustomed to winning in spite of turnovers in the past two years with Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston as their starter. Winston led the Seminoles to a 24-0 regular season record and two ACC Championships in two years as a starter, winning a National Championship in 2013 and leading the team to a Rose Bowl appearance the following season.
