INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



Final Score: (1) Florida State 34, (2) Auburn 31

Florida State Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with only 13 seconds remaining lifting the Seminoles to a 34-31 win over No. 2 Auburn in the BCS Championship Game on Monday at the Rose Bowl.

The Seminoles (14-0) captured their third national championship and second BCS title, the last one coming in 1999.

 

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall passed for 216 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for a score, but threw a fourth-quarter interception that led to a Florida State TD.

 

Tre Mason gained 195 yards on 34 carries and also caught a touchdown pass for the Tigers (12-2), who were trying to win the SEC's eighth straight BCS title.

 

 

This is the last season of the Bowl Championship Series. The four-team College Football Playoff starts next season.
