PASADENA, CALIF. - The Florida State Seminoles came to one of the shrines of American football on Monday with a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and a major point to prove.

For a while, it looked like both would crash spectacularly in their bid to end the powerful Southeastern Conference’s hold on college football’s biggest prize.

Instead, in a classic sendoff to the now deceased Bowl Championship Series, a two-yard touchdown pass from that Heisman winner (Famous) Jameis Winston to Kelvin Benjamin with just 13 seconds remaining on the clock gave the Seminoles a clutch 34-31 win.

The setting was spectacular, with kickoff coming not long after the sun set behind the San Gabriel mountains. But the finish was truly unforgettable.
