ATLANTA (AP) --

EJ Manuel threw a fourth-quarter touchdown pass
to stop a South Carolina rally and lead Florida State to a 26-17
victory over the turnover-plagued Gamecocks in the Chick-fil-A Bowl
on Friday night.

Chris Thompson ran for 147 yards and a touchdown and Dustin
Hopkins kicked four field goals for the No. 23 Seminoles (10-4),
who reached 10 wins for the first time since 2003.

Manuel took over for senior quarterback Christian Ponder, who
left early in the second quarter with a concussion. No. 19 South
Carolina lost running back Marcus Lattimore when he was hit hard on
the Gamecocks' first drive.

South Carolina (9-5) was seeking its first 10-win season since
1984.
