Having already exceeded some pundits expectations of the team by playing in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had opportunities to pull of the upset against No. 13 Florida State Seminoles, but an interception on the last drive put the final nail in the coffin.

Yellow Jackets quarterback Tevin Washington talked about the game-ending interception he threw -- which was intended for junior running back Robbie Godhigh -- with reporters, including Ken Sugiura The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The senior Washington did not blame anyone but himself for the interception, knowing he could have made a better throw and certainly played better than completing 4 of 14 passes. Washington passed for just 76 yards on the day.

"I thought if I would have made a better throw and put it on his outside, he would have had a chance to catch the ball and get up the field. I kind of left it inside and got undercut and they made a play on the ball."

Seminoles safety Karlos Williams, who caught the interception, talks about the play he made to catch the interception and seal the game for Florida State and avoid an upset in the title game.

"I just broke on it and tried to tip it up and bat it down, but luckily it tipped up in the air and I just tried to make a sure catch and that's what happened. I'm just happy I got the call and we're ACC champs."
