Corso, Saban, Red Lightning All Cameo In Title Game's Turning Point

For most of the first half last night, Auburn looked unbeatable while Florida State looked like a team that spent its season beating up on nobodies. Just before halftime, that changed. A masterful Jameis Winston scramble on third down sparked FSU's first touchdown, one that cut the Tigers' lead to 11 and suggested that, just maybe, the Seminoles had a chance.

The play features much of what will make 2013 memorable; Winston making an escape, Nick Saban standing by, Lee Corso looking confused, and Red Lightning. It's all too beautiful to let go unrecognized.
