ORLANDO -- Florida State running back Dalvin Cook has seen comebacks like Monday's before.

Go back to 2014, when the Seminoles seemed to trail in every game en route to the College Football Playoff. Think back to the 21-0 deficit against Louisville, or the 16-0 hole at Miami.

"I ain't trying to go through them heartaches like I did in 2014, man..." Cook said after Monday's wild 45-34 win over No. 11 Ole Miss. "We ain't gonna start that up." 

Considering the comeback by No. 4 FSU was the biggest (in a win) in school history, the 'Noles probably won't accomplish many more like it. I've never witnessed a game quite like it. None of the nearby writers in the pressbox at Camping World Stadium could, either. 

So where does Monday's rally rank in college football history? How historic was it? What other games come to mind?
