The first half saw auburn dominate on the ground with their read option attack which made FSU look completely confused. The Seminoles looked uncharacteristically out of sync having many false starts and defensive missed assignments leading to an eventual 21-10 halftime lead for the Tigers.
The third quarter saw much of the same, Tre Mason of the Tigers was still dominating the run game but the Seminoles defense managed to hold for the quarter leaving the score at 21-10. Enter the fourth quarter, this is when things started to become crazy. The Seminoles players started to feel that they were still well in this ball game and played inspired football.
Early in the fourth quarter in then perfect Auburn suffered their first turnover, a crucial interception thrown by Marshall which lead to an FSU touchdown making the score 20-21. Auburn moved the ball down the field burning the clock while Mason topped the 125 yard mark with the drive ending in a field goal. Up 24-20 Auburn kicked the ball of to FSU to give Jameis Winston a chance to have the final drive of the game. Let's just say he never had a chance.
I can't eve begin to explain just how good this game was, in all of my years of watching sports this ranks in the top 2 of every game I have ever seen. It also brings a run of 8 straight SEC BCS titles to an end and also ends the BCS national championship games as the format changes to a playoff next year.

Notes: FSU is the first team to win in the BCSNC when trailing at the half. Which makes Auburn the first team to lose winning at the half. FSU broke the single season scoring record that was held by OSU since 2008.
