TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --
A week after missing a game-winning kick in the final seconds, Dustin Hopkins booted a career-best 55-yard field goal Saturday night as time expired to give Florida State a 16-13 victory over Clemson.
Hopkins missed a 40-yard kick last week that allowed North
Carolina to escape with a 37-35 win.
Chandler Catanzaro's second field goal for Clemson -- a 29 yard
kick with 53 seconds left, tied the game.
EJ Manuel, who started in place of an injured Christian Ponder
at quarterback, scored Florida State's only touchdown on an 8-yard
run with 10:08 left to give the Seminoles a 13-10 lead.
Florida State (7-3, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) remained
alive in its pursuit of a berth in next month's ACC title game
along with Maryland and North Carolina State.
Jamie Harper ran for a career high 126 yards and a touchdown for
Clemson (5-5, 3-4).
