Jack Nicklaus is a wise man. He bought tickets to the BCS National Championship game in the fall, hoping to see either his alma mater, Ohio State, or his grandson’s school, Florida State, play in Pasadena.
OSU faltered, but Nick O’Leary and FSU did not. So Nicklaus was on hand Monday night to watch the Seminoles snap the SEC’s streak of seven straight national titles. The ACC champs defeated Auburn, 34-31.
Nicklaus posted a shot on Instagram of him and his wife, Barbara, outside the Rose Bowl prior to the game:
And Nicklaus congratulated O’Leary on the field afterward:
Add another championship to the ledger for the Nicklaus family.
