FINAL: Florida State 21, Georgia Tech 15
For much of the game Florida State was able to out option Georgia Tech. EJ Manuel gained 49 rushing yards, most coming on option runs, and Florida State was able to hold on to become the 2012-2013 ACC Champions.
Florida State got the scoring off early as Devonta Freeman scored on the Noles first possession of the game. James Wilder, who led FSU in rushing, gave the Noles a 14-point lead with a 16-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Wilder scored twice in the second quarter and FSU led going into the locker room 21-6.
The second half was all Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets have struggled defensively this season but they stepped up in a big way in the second half tonight, holding Florida State scoreless.
Georgia Tech would kick a field goal in the third quarter and score a touchdown to make it a one possession game with 6:27 left in the fourth but couldn't complete the comeback.
