Jameis Winston (Florida State -- 2013-14)

Best season
2013: 257-384, 4057 yds, 40 TDs, 10 INTs; 219 yds, 4 TDs

Career
27 games: 562-851, 7964 yds, 65 TDs, 28 INTs; 286 yds, 7 TDs

As a redshirt freshman, Winston led the Seminoles to an undefeated season (14-0) and the university’s third national championship. He set national freshman records with 4,057 passing yards and 40 TDs, the latter which was also single-season FSU record. This prolific output earned him the Heisman Trophy and Walter Camp Award. In 2014, Winston led FSU through a second straight undefeated regular season. In just 27 career games, he's third on FSU's passing list for yards and second in TD passes. He was 26-1 as a starter, the highest winning percentage in school history.
VS

Daunte Culpepper (UCF -- 1995-98)

Best season
1998: 296-402, 3,690 yds, 28 TDs, 7 INTs; 463 yds rushing

Career
33 games, 721-1,097, 9,341 yds, 72 TDs, 32 INTs; 1,003 yds rushing

A four-year starter, Culpepper's tenure coincided with UCF's jump to Division I-A and he would rewrite the school's record books. In his final season, UCF's third in I-A, he led the Golden Knights to a 9-2 record and finished sixth in the Heisman voting after setting the NCAA's single-season record for completion percentage (77.6%). At the time he left the school, he was only the third player in NCAA history to throw for more than 10,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000. He was the first UCF player to be chosen in the first round of the NFL draft (No. 11).
