Jameis Winston Becomes First Freshman QB To Win BCS National Championship
Posted January 7th, 2014 @ 12:00am by Bill Galluccio

The Florida State Seminoles were down heading into the half for the first time all season. It didn't matter to freshman quarterback Jameis Winston. He acted like a seasoned vet, leading the Seminoles to a thrilling 34-31 victory.

With 1:11 remaining Winston drove the Seminoles down the field. He capped off the drive with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds reamining. 

The final five minutes of the game were wild. It started with a 100-yard kick-off return by Kermit Whitfield which gave FSU their first lead since it was 3-0. Aubrun answered back with a touchdown to retake the lead. That left Winston with 1:11, and the game in his hands.  

The Seminoles wrapped up an undefeated season earning their first National Championship since 1999.
