Auburn controlled much of the first three quarters of the game, and entered the final frame up 21-13. All the Tigers had to do was hold on. But FSU had other plans. An interception to start off the fourth quarter led to a Chad Abram touchdown. Auburn responded with a field goal, but the ‘Noles answered right back with speedster Levonte Whitfield‘s 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Auburn’s Tre Mason scored on a rushing touchdown on the next series, giving the Tigers a 31-27 edge. It was then that 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston took over, leading FSU down the field, and sealing their national title with a touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds remaining.
