Florida State Wins National Championship in Most Exciting Game in BCS History
Last night was the final BCS National Championship Game and it ended up being one most exciting game in BCS history. The game saw No. 1 Florida State Seminoles (14-0) taking on the No. 2 Auburn Tigers (12-2) with the Seminoles walking away with a 34-31 victory.
Florida State went into half time down 21-10 but with the help of their Heisman winning quarterback Jameis Winston, managed to come back to eventually win the game, thanks to Winston’s last second touchdown pass with 13 seconds left in the game.
The victory also ended the SEC’s dominance in the title game, stopping their streak at seven championships in a row. It was also Florida States second BCS Championship, their last one coming in 2000 against Virginia Tech.
One of the big plays of the night was the Seminoles fake punt, which they managed to convert to a first down and would later score on that drive in the final minutes of the first half.
And then there was the kick returned for a touchdown which gave Florida State a 27-24 lead with less than five minutes left in the game. Either play could be considered a game changer.
