In Monday’s BCS Championship Game against the Auburn Tigers, the Florida State Seminoles did not look the part of their usual dominant selves in the first half as they were getting blown off the field by the Tigers.
Some of this was in large part due to the Auburn defense throwing the vaunted FSU offense out of its rhythm. More specifically, they did a great job of preventing Jameis Winston from getting the ball to his favorite 6-6 wide receiver, Kelvin Benjamin.
The second half was a different story, though, as not only did Benjamin begin to see the ball, he made the biggest impact of the game.
With 13 seconds to go and his team down 31-27, Benjamin hauled in a two-yard pass in the end zone, under tight coverage, from Winston which ultimately gave the ‘Noles their first title since 1999.
That specific play will now be what the folks at Sports Illustrated will feature on their cover for this week, with quite the fitting headline to go along.
