The Florida State Seminoles found themselves in a 21-3 hole pretty fast against the Auburn Tigers in the BCS National Championship and had a hole to dig out of almost immediately. But while everyone was high on the Tigers for the first half of them game, rightfully so, the Noles came powering back in the second half to slowly but surely chip away at the Auburn lead.

After a Chad Abram touchdown run cut the lead to 21-20, the night was almost ruined by a Devonte Freeman penalty that pushed the Noles out of two-point range. But after the defense forced a field goal to keep the game at a manageable 24-20, kick returner Levonte Whitfield proceeded to suck the gravity out of the Rose Bowl with his kick off return for a touchdown that showed no regard for human life whatsoever.

The touchdown not only made the score 27-24, and not only gave the Seminoles their second lead of the night but it destroyed all of the momentum the Tigers had been building up all game long.
