The 2013 college football season provided plenty of drama from start to finish, so it may be fitting that the season's final minutes delivered some intense moments with the championship on the line. As you know by now, Florida State snapped the SEC's winning streak in the BCS championship game, but the fall of the SEC may be a tad exaggerated.

Listen to what we have to say and then share your thoughts with a comment below.
