Jameis Winston threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left and No. 1 Florida State beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 to win the last BCS national championship game on Monday night.
Jameis Winston left voters no choice but to give him the Heisman Trophy. And like every other Florida State victory this season, it was a blowout.
The Heisman Trophy will be presented Saturday evening in New York City. Winston’s name should be at the top of the list as college football’s most impressive player from the start of the season through the championship games. Everything else after that is purely a guess.
An unusually large group of six players will be in New York on Saturday as finalists for the Heisman Memorial Trophy. The finalists were announced by the Heisman Trust late Monday evening.
After leading Florida State to the ACC Championship on Saturday, quarterback Jameis Winston looks like he will become the second redshirt freshman in a row to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy.
A week ago, the Southeastern Conference looked as though it had finally been vanquished.
The last steps to the BCS championship game summed up their seasons. For No. 1 Florida State, it was a breeze. For Auburn, it took the unexpected.
After having their season saved on one of the most improbably finishes in college football history; the Auburn Tigers are just one win away from becoming the SEC Champion and possibly playing for the BCS Championship Game.
