BCS National Championship Game: Jameis Winston throws game-winning TD (GIF)

When the Florida State Seminoles went down 21-3 very early on in the BCS National Championship game, the thinking all over the country was that we had vastly underrated the Auburn Tigers. While that statement is still true, despite the final minute of the game, we all collectively forgot about the swagger of the Florida State Seminoles and the ice water running through the veins of Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

After letting the lead slip back into the hands of the Auburn Tigers, Winston led the Noles down the length of the field to cap the drive off with a huge touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin which gave the Seminoles a 34-31 lead with under 0:20 left to play in the game.


For some reason we knew the Noles were capable of such a comeback but refused to indulge in the thought. But there is just something about the Rose Bowl that brings out the best in college football and we saw that in the final drive of the Seminoles season and game winning touchdown drive from Jameis Winston.
