Florida State vs. Virginia Tech: Seminoles score late, lead Hokies 13-10 at halftime

After the two teams alternated field goals in the first quarter, the Virginia Tech Hokies broke through to the end zone in the second, but surrendered a late score to the Florida State Seminoles, who lead, 13-10, at halftime on Thursday night.

Late in the quarter, the Hokies took the 10-6 lead on a four-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Logan Thomas to wide receiver Corey Fuller. The reception capped a nine-play, 68-yard drive.

The Seminoles, though, were quick to respond, as quarterback EJ Manuel hit wide receiver Rashad Greene on a 25-yard touchdown strike with under a minute to play in the quarter to grab the 13-10 advantage.

That quick offensive outburst was set up by Florida State taking the lead back early in the frame, thanks to a 45-yard field goal from placekicker Dustin Hopkins that finished off a drive following Thomas's only interception, which was picked off by Tyler Hunter at Virginia Tech's 34-yard line.

After forcing a Hokies punt, Hunter fumbled on the subsequent return and Virginia Tech recovered on the Seminoles' 30-yard line. The offense went three-and-out and left the field without points, however, as Cody Journell missed a 43-yard field goal attempt, keeping the score at 6-3, Florida State, at the time.
