Monday night brought an end to an era, and Florida State sent the BCS out with a bang. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston led a furious fourth quarter rally and the Seminoles prevailed over Auburn, 34-31, in the BCS Championship Game.

Florida State remained unbeaten and was the unanimous No. 1 team in the season’s final Legends Poll. Despite the loss, Auburn held on to its No. 2 spot.

Michigan State, Missouri and South Carolina rounded out the top 5.

No. 6 Oklahoma jumped seven spots and finished ahead of No. 7 Alabama, after knocking off the Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl.

Alabama was followed by Clemson, Oregon and Ohio State in the top 10.
