Florida State University officials say Seminole's quarterback Jameis Winston will 'undergo internal discipline' after he made lewd comments about women.
Winston will also be withheld from competition for the first half of the home game against Clemson.
The university handed down the punishment in a joint statement Wednesday by Interim President Dr. Garrett S. Stokes and Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox.
Several students tweeted Winston standing on campus Tuesday, shouting a lewd comment.
No. 1 Florida State hosts No. 22 Clemson Saturday.
Florida State University released this statement Wednesday:
JOINT STATEMENT BY FLORIDA STATE INTERIM PRESIDENT DR. GARNETT S. STOKES AND DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS STAN WILCOX
As the university's most visible ambassadors, student-athletes at Florida State are expected to uphold at all times high standards of integrity and behavior that reflect well upon themselves, their families, coaches, teammates, the Department of Athletics and Florida State University. Student-athletes are expected to act in a way that reflects dignity and respect for others.
As a result of his comments yesterday, which were offensive and vulgar, Jameis Winston will undergo internal discipline and will be withheld from competition for the first half of the Clemson game.
The University and athletics department will have no further comment on the matter.
