DAPHNE, Alabama - in the BCS National Championship Game on Monday night is the final entry in the College Football Game of the Year lineup for the 2013 season.

The U.S. Sports Academy's College Football Game of the Year Committee selects a Game of the Week throughout the season. Each week's winner joins the competition to become the College Football Game of the Year. The BCS National Championship Game was selected to represent the bowl season among the College Football Game of the Year choices.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left in the game to lift the Seminoles over Auburn in the title game at Rose Bowl Stadium. The TD capped a comeback for a team that hadn't been behind since the fourth game of the season until Auburn jumped on FSU for a 21-3 lead.
