North Carolina 37, Florida State 35
Nick Weiler made a 54-yard field goal as time expired to lift North Carolina past Florida State, snapping the Seminoles’ 22-game home winning streak.
It was the first field goal make by either team after the kickers combined to miss their first four attempts. Weiler also atoned for a blocked extra point that allowed the Seminoles to take a late lead.
After Florida State took a 35-34 lead with 22 seconds remaining on Deondre Francois 2-yard touchdown run, the Tar Heels were able to drive 38 yards in three plays. They also took advantage of a pass interference call on Tavarus McFadden to get them in range.
It is the second straight week that the Tar Heels (41, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won in the final seconds. Last Saturday, they beat Pittsburgh 37-36 with 2 seconds remaining on Mitch Trubinsky’s touchdown pass.
