Seminoles score third touchdown of half, lead Georgia Tech, 21-3

Streeter Lecka

James Wilder's second touchdown of the game has given Florida State a commanding lead in the ACC Championship.

Florida State is threatening to turn the ACC Championship into a blowout. After a one-yard touchdown run from James Wilder—his second of the day—the Seminoles now lead the Yellow Jackets, 21-3, as the first half winds down.

Georgia Tech put its first points on the board with a field goal five minutes into the second quarter, but Florida State didn't give them much time to celebrate. On their longest drive of the game—nine plays and 75 yards—the Seminoles marched down the field with a healthy balance of passes and runs. They were also aided by a 15-yard penalty on the Yellow Jackets after a 12-yard run by E.J. Manuel.

That play moved Florida State to Georgia Tech's 25-yard-line with eight minutes left in the half. From there, five straight rushes—two from Manuel and three from Wilder—led to the Seminoles' third touchdown of the game.

Manuel has been a one-man wrecking crew, completing 7-of-9 passes for 66 yards and rushing five times for 59 yards, giving him more total yards than Georgia Tech's entire offense. The Yellow Jackets have been stymied, with just the one field goal in four drives. David Sims has 52 yards on the ground, but Georgia Tech can't get anything going through the air.
