Great article with, of course, the Buckeye National Championship win over Miami of Florida being the #1 BCS game in the scout ratings. GO BUCKEYES !
1. 2003 Fiesta Bowl … National Championship
Ohio State 31, Miami 24 2OT
In what can only be described as one of the greatest college football games of all-time, Ken Dorsey's fourth-and-goal pass in the second overtime fell short, and Ohio State won the national title.
In regulation, a punt return by Roscoe Parrish gave Miami great field position for Todd Sievers to hit a 40-yard field goal with :02 to play to put the game into overtime.
Craig Krenzel celebrates his overtime TD run against Miami in the 2003 national title game.
The Canes scored on a 7-yard touchdown pass to Kellen Winslow on their first OT possession. Following a broken up pass in the end zone by Glenn Sharpe that would've given Miami the national title, the official called pass interference to give the Buckeyes new life. Craig Krenzel capitalized with a one-yard TD run.
Maurice Clarett scored on a five-yard touchdown run on the Buckeyes' possession in the second overtime for what would be the winning points. For the game, Krenzel and Clarett each ran for two touchdowns.

Never in the history of college football has a quarterback made So many big plays in a game where he had a statline that bad.
Interesting that "all-time" goes back to 1999.
What year did the BCS start?
That game will live on for a long time and for a lot of reasons. All of the star power of both teams, the suspense, and it being a ncg makes it number one.
Im not sure there has been a team in the BCS era win a NCG with a worse offense. Outside of MoC and the occasional Krenzel QB draw we were terrible on offense. I will take a great defense over a great offense any day though.
I miss my Kate Upton Picture
