    The Florida State Seminoles sent the BCS out in style on Monday, Jan. 6, winning their first national championship in 14 years in a 34-31 come-from-behind victory over the Auburn Tigers.

    Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston struggled throughout the first half, but made big plays when he had to down the stretch, completing the go-ahead touchdown pass with 13 seconds remaining to conclude a stellar second half for the Seminoles, who trailed 21-3 with under two minutes to play in the first half. 

    Winston would come away with game MVP honors. 

    Meanwhile, Auburn's Tre Mason racked up 237 total yards and two total touchdowns in a losing effort.

    Here we'll relive the best moments from the 2014 BCS National Championship Game.
