TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Florida State Seminoles fans are still celebrating their big win in last night's BCS title game, but it may be Auburn fans who were getting a last laugh this morning.

The shirt shown for sale earlier today on Seminole Shop -- the "official online store for Florida State athletics" -- showed an incorrect final score on the shirt.  Instead of a 34-31 Seminole victory, the graphic reversed the score, depicting a 34-31 victory by the Tigers.

"It features custom Champs graphics and the final score of the game, so you can show off your FSU pride in style," the description read.

The 'Noles won, of course, on a dramatic final-minute touchdown throw by Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

A spokesman for Fanatics, Inc. -- the site's Jacksonville-based parent company -- later blamed the product's quick turnaround for the problem with the T-shirt image.

"As a company that prides itself on providing the best shopping experience for sports fans, we go to great lengths to display hundreds of championship items as efficiently as possible immediately following each championship game," Meier Raivich stated in an email to FOX 13 just after 3 p.m. "Unfortunately, during the process of uploading images quickly so Seminole fans can celebrate the big victory, one FSU t-shirt image inadvertently reflected the incorrect final score. Once the error was detected, it was immediately corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."

The updated version of the shirt can be found here. Meanwhile, other championship gear arrived at local stores as early as this morning.
