Watch the huge, last-minute play that saved Florida State's title hopes

Four lead changes in the final five minutes and a last-second touchdown send the BCS Championship out in ridiculous fashion

Florida State topped Auburn Monday night in the final BCS Championship game ever, following a wild finish that saw both teams explode for huge plays — including a 100-yard kick return — in the waning minutes. And for Florida State, no play was bigger than a last-minute, 49-yard strike that put the Seminoles in scoring range as the clock wound down.

Trailing by three with under a minute to go and the ball on their own 28 yard-line, Florida State had to move down field quickly to ensure they could at least nail a game-tying field goal to extend the game. That's when Heisman-winner Jameis Winston found Rashad Greene with a short pass that, after two Auburn players botched easy tackles, turned into a 49-yard gain.

Suddenly, Florida State had the ball deep in Auburn territory with plenty of time left on the clock. A few plays later, they scored on a short touchdown pass to go up for good.

College football will finally move next year to a playoff format, so this was the sport's last single-game championship.

So with that: So long, BCS. You won't be missed.
