Video: Florida State’s Levonte Whitfield has 100-yard kickoff return touchdown

BCS Championship Game, Florida State Seminoles

The Seminoles needed a big play. Levonte “Kermit” Whitfield gave it to them. The freshman took a kick return 100 yards to the end zone to give Florida State a 24-20 lead with just more than 4:31 remaining — the ‘Noles’ first lead since 3-0 in the first quarter. Whitfield didn’t have many touches this season, but he was explosive every time he got the ball.

As a sendoff to the BCS, this game has certainly delivered. Tigers running back Tre Mason scored just a few plays later to give Auburn a 31-27 lead with 1:19 left.


The only person he didn't leave in his wake was his teammate who was right on his heels.
