Something happened in the first quarter of Monday night’s BCS title game that hasn’t happened since Sept. 28 of last year.
Florida State fell behind in a football game.
Auburn punctured the armor of the Seminoles by jumping out ahead, 14-3, early in the second quarter on the strength of two Nick Marshall touchdown passes: The first a short inside screen to Tre Mason and the second a 50-yard strike to Melvin Ray.
Tigers head coach Gus Malzhan’s offensive wizardry put FSU’s nation-leading defense on its heels, while Heisman winner Jameis Winston looked very much like a freshman.
If this keeps up, we’ll have one of the biggest upsets in BCS history. We’ll see you again at halftime.
