The Florida State Seminoles ended the Southeastern Conference's reign over the BCS championship, toppling the Auburn Tigers to take the crystal football out of the league for the first time since 2006.
The ACC's major victory almost didn't happen, as Auburn took a 31-27 lead with just over a minute left in the game. However, Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston methodically led FSU on a game-winning touchdown drive, giving the 'Noles a 34-31 victory.
It was just the second BCS title in 16 years for the ACC, both of which were won by FSU. It also marks the end of the BCS era.
As college football transitions into its new championship format, Florida State and Auburn will each move forward from outstanding 2013 campaigns.
