COL FB: Virginia 14, Florida State 13

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Kevin Parks scampered for the decisive score with 1:16 remaining Saturday, rallying Virginia to a 14-13 win over 22-ranked Florida State.

After the touchdown, Virginia held on to survive the Seminoles' final drive even though Florida State saw some breaks go their way down the stretch.

It looked as though Florida State would be stymied on 4th-and-1 from midfield when E.J. Manuel was sacked, but a facemask penalty kept the drive alive.

Seconds later, Bert Reed made a 4-yard grab at the Virginia 26-yard, but the clock kept ticking because the referees ruled his knee came down inbounds -- preventing FSU from being able to get off a field goal try.

A video review overruled the call, however, and Dustin Hopkins was allowed a 43-yard attempt -- but it went wide as time expired.

Virginia (8-3, 5-2 ACC) kept its ACC Coastal Division title hopes alive with its fourth straight win.

Meanwhile, the Seminoles (7-4, 5-3), saw their five- game winning streak snapped.
