A 13-play, 70-yard drive has given Georgia Tech its first touchdown of the game as the Yellow Jackets try to rally against Florida State in the ACC Championship.

Thanks to a fumble by E.J. Manuel on a sack, the Yellow Jackets put a stop to a Seminoles drive that took them deep into Georgia Tech territory. From there, Washington led the charge, hitting Jeremy Moore for 18 yards to start the drive and then connecting with B.J. Bostic on a 32-yard completion on a crucial 3rd-and-13 at Florida State's 44-yard-line. Five plays later, Washington ran it in for the score, though he was unable to convert the two-point attempt, to make it 21-16 with six-and-a-half minutes to go in the game.

After piling 21 points on the Yellow Jackets in the first half, the Seminoles have come apart, committing two turnovers to let Georgia Tech back into the game. The fumble by Manuel killed a Florida State drive that had gone all the way to Georgia Tech's 25-yard-line. Just before that drive, the Yellow Jackets had booted a 36-yard field goal to cut the lead to 21-9.
