    Tar Heels Upset #3 Virginia Tech in One for the Ages
    The North Carolina defense was able to keep the Hokies out of the end zone, and survived a late rally to punch their ticket to the Orange Bowl. QB Bryn Renner had a solid day throwing for 209 yards and 2 TDs, and HB Giovani Bernard added 92 yards and a TD of his own. Trailing by 2 with just 30 seconds left in the 1st half after Virginia Tech's third field goal, the Heels came roaring back to take a 14 - 9 lead into halftime after a spectacular touchdown grab by WR Jheranie Boyd. Midway through the 3rd, North Carolina had opened the lead to 12 points after a 6-yard TD catch by WR Erik Highsmith. The Hokies managed to penetrate the red zone several, but never could punch it in for 6 and had settle for 5 field goals. Virginia Tech pulled to within 6 with just over 4 minutes remaining, but the Tar Heels were able to melt the clock down to under 2 minutes and the Hokies started their last possession from their own 8 yard line. To his credit, QB Logan Thomas was able to nearly drive the length of the field but CB Jabari Price picked off the game-winning touchdown as time expired.

    Early miscues sunk #1 Auburns perfect season and National Championship hopes. A pick 6 for Florida on Auburns first drive set the tone early. Auburn was able to answer with a huge 73 yard TD run by QB Kiehl Frazier, but the momentum would switch back to Florida shortly after and stay with them through the rest of the game. The Gators rattled off 27 straight points the rest of the first half including another pick 6.
    The Gators would not score in the second half, but at that point, they didn't need to. Auburn was able to score a fourth quarter TD but they were never able to sustain enough drives to get back into the game.
    Florida wins the SEC! After starting the season 4-3 the Gators won 6 straight to get to 10-3 on the year and puch their ticket to a BCS bowl.
