Seminoles take early lead over Georgia Tech

Streeter Lecka

A three-yard touchdown run from Devonta Freeman has Florida State up 7-0 in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte.

Florida State wasted no time getting on the board in Sunday's ACC Championship Game against Georgia Tech. Using a six-play, 43-yard drive, the Seminoles got the first points of the match with a touchdown run from Devonta Freeman.

After stuffing Georgia Tech on a three-and-out on the game's first drive, the Seminoles got great field position thanks to a 20-yard Yellow Jackets punt. Florida State then went to the air to start the scoring, as E.J. Manuel hit Lonnie Pryor for a 21-yard completion to the Yellow Jackets' 22-yard-line at the 14-minute mark.

Manuel moved the chains again on a 3rd-and-4 with an 11-yard pass to Rashad Greene from Georgia Tech's 16-yard-line to put the Seminoles on the doorstep. From there, two rushes from Freeman led to the first seven points of the game with 11:31 to go in the quarter.

Georgia Tech responded with a long drive that got them as far as the Florida State 36-yard-line, but stalled out with an incomplete pass and two rushes that lost yardage.
