Here is the relevant quote:

"How can you manage as many top-five finishes and win the title only
twice? And one of those two was a lifetime achievement award from
sportswriting cronies.  FSU was 'awarded' the 1993 title over Notre
Dame, even though the Irish beat the Seminoles head to head on the
penultimate weekend of the regular season."

No.

Boston College's field goal kicker and Notre Dame's overconfident defense
took away that #1 from you.
