The Virginia Cavaliers pulled out a last minute 14-13 victory over the Florida St. Seminoles on Saturday night. But it was a bizarre series of events that led to it. The game appeared to end with Florida State having completed a pass with the clock at zero. But it was reviewed and called an incomplete pass, putting eight seconds back on the clock.
Florida State came back on the field for a 48-yard field goal and had it it move to a 43-yard attempt once Virginia was called for drawing the offensive line into early movement. But then Dustin Hopkins missed the kick, in typical Florida State fashion.
On Virginia's game-winning drive, Michael Rocco, who threw a touchdown pass to Perry Jones in the first quarter, completed four straight passes for 65 yards to put the Cavaliers on the Seminoles' 10-yard line. Kevin Parks finished the drive with a 10-yard touchdown run to take the 14-13 lead with 1:16 left in the game.
The Cavaliers still have a shot at the ACC title game with this victory, but they will need to beat the Virginia Tech Hokies next week.
