And so the longest winning streak in America ends in a hurry. The painstakingly slow FSU Seminoles died a quick death Thursday night. The Oregon Ducks could not wait to run their next play, and the one after that, and the one after that. They were in a rush to end FSU's dominance, and the Seminoles could not keep up.

They play offense in the fast lane, without pause, without breath.
