TUESDAY SPORTS: FSU wins title; USC, Clemson finish in Top 10

January 7, 2014

Number 1 Florida State topped Number 2 Auburn 34-31 Monday night in Pasadena to win the last-ever BCS national championship and seal their perfect season, getting the victory on a two-yard touchdown pass from Heisman Trophy-winning freshman quarterback Jameis Winston to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left in the game. The Seminoles rallied after being down 21-10 at halftime to the Tigers, becoming the first team to come back from a halftime deficit to win the BCS title game. Their comeback included a 100-yard kickoff return by Kermit Whitfield with 4:31 left to play. Winston — who was playing on his 20th birthday — went 20 of 35 for 237 yards with two touchdown passes.


South Carolina has finished the football season with hits highest-ever ranking. The Gamecocks are ranked #4 in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Polls.  Clemson was voted 8th and 7th respectively in the two rankings. Newly crowned national champion Florida State was #1 in each with Auburn second. Michigan State, South Carolina and Missouri complete the top five in both rankings.


Furman needed the full 2013 season to crack the national polls, but the Paladins finally made it — at No. 21 — in the final Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Coaches Poll, which was released Monday afternoon. It marked the Paladins’ first appearance in a final season poll since 2006. North Dakota State is the #1 team.


American Lindsey Vonn says she will miss Sochi Olympicks because of a knee injury. Vonn broke the news to Matt Lauer in an interview aired Tuesday on the Today Show on NBC.


UNCG shot 67.9% in the second half and scored on 13 of its final 15 possessions to overcome Kendrec Ferrara’s career-high 21 points and edge Furman, 90-82, in Southern Conference men’s basketball action on Monday night at the Greensboro Coliseum.


In the NBA Monday, Joe Johnson snapped out of a slump with 23 points against his former team, and the Brooklyn Nets matched a season high with their third win in a row by beating the Atlanta Hawks 91-86.
