Florida State and Northern Illinois are finished with the 2013 Orange Bowl. The Seminoles defeated the Huskies 31-10 in Sun Life after getting off to a slow start.

The Huskies fought valiantly, and the score was 17-10 entering the fourth quarter. Florida State scored on the first play of the fourth, and it was downhill for the Huskies from there.

Throughout the game, Florida State found out exactly why NIU made it to the Orange Bowl: The Huskies are fierce, even when outmatched.

Northern Illinois never gave up, and the Huskies proceeded to prove that a one-loss team from the MAC is certainly capable of winning a game like this.

Florida State capped a great season off with a BCS bowl win in its first appearance since 2005. Click through the slides to see the complete postgame grades for the Seminoles.
