"Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium is known to haunt visitors but that didn't stop No. 6/8 Florida State from earning a come-from-behind 28-22 victory in the final moments Thursday night."

USA Today: Late TD propels No. 6 Florida State past Virginia Tech

"It looked like it was going to be another heartbreaking Thursday night for the Florida State Seminoles...Then EJ Manuel and Rashad Greene came to the rescue, hooking up for a 39-yard touchdown with 40 seconds left to lift No. 6 Florida State to a 28-22 win over Virginia Tech."

Washington Post: Virginia Tech vs. Florida State: Hokies fall to 4-6 with loss to No. 8 Seminoles

"For more than 59 minutes Thursday night, Virginia Tech’s defense delivered a vintage performance. Facing the ACC’s top offense, the Hokies swarmed Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel, sacking him five times, creating two turnovers and even scoring on a fourth-quarter safety...But with the game on the line, defensive coordinator Bud Foster’s unit wilted on the one play that mattered most and for the second time this season Virginia Tech had a come-from-behind win snatched away in demoralizing fashion."

NBC: Seminoles win a squeaker; No. 8 Florida State rallies to score late TD, defeat struggling Virginia Tech 28-22 on Thursday; Florida State survives VaTech, stays atop ACC Atlantic

"On the same day that Clemson lost the verbal commitment of the No. 1 recruit in the nation for the class of 2013, it also lost a little more hope in getting back to the ACC championship game. The Tigers, at 8-1 overall and 5-1 in the ACC, are on the wrong end of a head-to-head tie with Florida State atop the conference’s Atlantic division and would need some help to leapfrog the Seminoles."

Orlando Sentinel: FSU scores dramatic 28-22 win at Virginia Tech; Quarterback EJ Manuel led the Seminoles on a critical scoring drive to secure the win

"Florida State was supposed to have already learned the lesson...The stunning, unexpected emotions of quiet sideline stoicism were supposed to be done. After all, they had already happened on the road at North Carolina State. With the Calamity in Carolina still fresh in their minds, the sight of shocked, surprised and astonished Seminoles faces wasn't supposed to rear its ugly head once again, right?"

Miami Herald: Rapid Reaction: FSU 28 Virginia Tech 22

"Florida State snuck out of Blacksburg with a win after the Hokies gave the Seminoles a serious scare on Thursday night. It took a Rashad Greene touchdown reception on the definitive drive of the game after Virginia Tech went ahead on a safety and a field goal to settle the game for Florida State."

Sites using the wires:

ESPN: Virginia Is For Seminoles

"E.J. Manuel and No. 8 Florida State had no reason to panic when they got the ball with 2:19 to go needing to score...That fearlessness might have had a lot to do with Manuel being the one in charge."
