Semifinal 1 - Blue Bracket - No. 1 vs. No. 4

Intro: Throughout the NCAA Tournament, will look back on the top 16 plays from the 2013 season. The plays will be broken down into two eight-play brackets and fans will vote on their play of the year.





INDIANAPOLIS – It's Final Four Week and while your NCAA brackets are likely busted, our #ColtsBracket has reached its own quartet.

The four quarterfinal matchups have been decided and now it's onto the Final Four plays of 2013.

On one side of the bracket we have a pair of Wild Card plays with Andrew Luck's leap versus Robert Mathis strip/sack.

On the other side it's Robert Mathis forcing a safety (surviving a very close vote) versus the Colts special teams scoring on a blocked field goal.

Voting for the semifinals will run Wednesday and Thursday before the final matchup debuts Friday. Voting for the final will extend through Monday.

Our first semifinal matchup comes from the Blue Bracket.

Which is your favorite (Vote Below)?Andrew Luck's Touchdown Leap Against Kansas City

-The Scene: Down 41-31, the Colts face a second-and-goal from the Chiefs two-yard line with 10:45 left in the fourth quarter.

-The Play: The comeback was building but before it reached its crescendo, a little Luck was needed. It was a "sandlot" play as a Donald Brown fumble quickly turned into chaos for everyone but No. 12. Luck picked up the bouncing ball, off of Samson Satele's helmet, and leaped over the goal line to keep the Colts comeback hopes alive. NBC color man Mike Mayock said it best after the touchdown: "You can't make this stuff up, folks."

Robert Mathis Strip/Sack Against Kansas City

-The Scene: Up 38-17, the Chiefs face a second-and-six at the Colts 46-yard line with 9:11 to go in the third quarter.

-The Play: The Colts were making their comeback but you had the feeling it wouldn't be complete until Mathis made his mark. This one was a little more taxing than most of his 2013 sacks but Mathis eventually got to Smith as the Chiefs quarterback tried to roll away from No. 98's pressure.
