Dustin Hopkins, kicker for the Florida State Seminoles, saved the day yesterday as the Seminoles hosted the Clemson Tigers.

The game was tied with three seconds to go in regulation, and Florida State set up to attempt a 55-yard field goal.

Talk about pressure for this sophomore from Houston, Texas!

Hopkins was cool, calm and collected as he split the uprights and sealed Clemson's fate in a 16-13 victory for Florida State.

Not only was the kick good, but Hopkins probably could have made it from another 10 yards out.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher fought back tears in a post-game interview, and the Seminoles look to salvage a lackluster season.
