Ohio State 31, Miami 24 (2OT) – Jan. 3, 2003 (BCS National Championship)

This game is most remembered for the controversial pass interference penalty that ripped a national title out of Miami’s hands. The game went into overtime tied at 17-17. Miami, with a 34-game winning streak at stake, quickly took a 24-17 lead and appeared to have the national championship wrapped up when a fourth-down Craig Krenzel pass to Chris Gamble fell incomplete. But field judge Terry Porter threw a late pass interference flag on Miami’s Glenn Sharpe, allowing OSU to force a second overtime. From there, OSU freshman RB Maurice Clarett would put OSU ahead before the defense stopped Miami to seal the program’s first national title since 1970.

Yep, another UCLA comeback makes the list. This was the wildest game of the 2019 season, especially when you consider that UCLA entered as a hapless 0-3 and Washington State was 3-0. The Cougars were up 49-17 with 6:52 to go in the third quarter after Anthony Gordon threw a TD pass to Dezmon Patmon. UCLA somehow got the deficit to 11 by the end of the third quarter and pulled ahead halfway through the fourth. The second half featured 11 — 11! — touchdowns.
