Seminoles score again, lead Yellow Jackets, 14-3

Streeter Lecka

Florida State scored its second touchdown of the first half of the ACC Championship on a 16-yard jaunt by James Wilder, and Georgia Tech answered with a field goal.

The Seminoles have pushed their lead over Georgia Tech to 14-3 in the ACC Championship thanks to another touchdown run, this one coming from James Wilder.

After opening the scoring with a touchdown on its first drive, Florida State went six plays and 38 yards, only to lose momentum at its own 45-yard-line with five-and-a-half minutes left in the first quarter. The Seminoles pinned the Yellow Jackets behind their own 10-yard-line, however, and held Georgia Tech to its third straight non-scoring drive.

Off the ensuing punt, Florida State methodically moved down the field. Two long rushes by E.J. Manuel—one for 10 yards across midfield, and another for 20 yards on a 3rd-and-2 to take the Seminoles into the red zone—set up Wilder's 16-yard touchdown run.

Georgia Tech answered back quickly, with a 42-yard pass from backup quarterback Vad Lee to Darren Waller to get the Yellow Jackets to Florida State's 23-yard-line. From there, Georgia Tech pushed all the way to the Seminoles' 12-yard-line, but the offense couldn't find its way to paydirt, and had to settle for a field goal with just under 10 minutes left in the first half.

The 42-yard completion from Lee to Waller has been Georgia Tech's only completed pass of the game. Tevin Washington is 0-3 with a sack. The Yellow Jackets have already run the ball 19 times for 63 yards. David Sims leads the team with 47 yards on nine carries. Manuel has done it all for Florida State, with 48 yards through the air and 30 on the ground.
