No. 13 Florida St. holds off Georgia Tech 21-15

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

James Wilder Jr. ran two touchdowns as No. 13 Florida State held off Georgia Tech 21-15 Saturday night to capture its first Atlantic Coast Conference champions since 2005 earn a trip to the Orange Bowl.
 
It was Florida State's 13th ACC title.
 
The heavily favored Seminoles (11-2) built a 21-6 lead at the half and held on to win, helping to erase some of the sting from last week's 37-26 loss to their bitter rival, No. 4 Florida.
 
Despite its record, Georgia Tech (6-7) is bowl eligible after receiving a waiver from the NCAA on Thursday.
 
It looked like Georgia Tech, a two-touchdown underdog, might get blown out, but the game wasn't decided until Karlos Williams intercepted Tevin Washington with less than a minute remaining.
 
The Yellow Jackets slowed down the Seminoles in the second half and forced two turnovers by quarterback EJ Manuel to get back in the game.
