On January 1 of last year, the Seminoles (led by EJ Manuel) dominated Northern Illinois 31-10, and later that week, the Orange Bowl hosted the BCS National Championship Game for the 20th time. The No.2 Alabama Crimson Tide, with running back Eddie Lacy and QB AJ McCarron, rolled over No.1 seed Notre Dame onto their third BCS National Championship title in four years, ousting the Fighting Irish 42-14.
