When it counted, Jameis Winston came through.
His two-yard scoring pass to Kevin Benjamin has put Florida State in the lead.
Does Auburn have one more miracle?
Tre Mason isn't super flashy, but he just showed why he was a Heisman Trophy finalist.
Mason just broke free on a 37-yard run for a touchdown.
He has run for 195 yards in 34 carries.
Levonte ("Kermit") Whitfield just turned around a national championship game in 11 seconds.
That's how long it took him to run 100 yards.
Taking the kickoff at the goal line, he ran straight up the field for about 15 yards, cut to the left sideline, and scored without being touched.
If Whitfield looked fast -- very fast -- it's because he is. A freshman, he was the state high school champion in Florida last season in both the 100- and 200-meter sprints.
He came into the game averaging 30.8 yards in 13 kickoff returns. He had one previous touchdown.
Auburn just did -- almost -- what it needed to do.
The Tigers answered Florida State's drive with a time-consuming -- 6 minutes 13 seconds -- that covered 69 yards in 13 plays and ended in a 23-yard field goal by Cody Parkey.
