Watch: Ga. Tech stuns No. 9 FSU on blocked FG, 78-yard TD return
Georgia Tech won’t be making an appearance in the College Football Playoffs this season, and now ACC rival FSU may not be either.
On Saturday, the Yellow Jackets handed the No. 9 Seminoles their first loss of the year when Lance Austin returned a blocked last-second, 56-yard field goal attempt by FSU’s all-American kicker Roberto Aguayo to hand Georgia Tech a thrilling 22-16 victory.
It was the first time in Aguayo’s career that he had missed a field goal in the fourth quarter.
The win snaps a five-game losing streak for the Yellow Jackets (3-5, 1-4 ACC), who began the year with CFP aspirations and a No. 16 ranking.
Meanwhile, the loss all but guarantees FSU (6-1, 4-1 ACC) will not make the football version of the Final Four this season.
