TWTW Bowling: FSU Finds Way To Win In Atlanta


EJ Manuel threw a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to lead Florida State to a 26-17 victory over turnover-plagued South Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The guys from Columbia had five on the night... turnovers, not points... although it felt like it...

Chris Thompson ran for 147 yards and a score. Dustin Hopkins kicked four field goals for the Seminoles (now 10-4), who reached 10 wins for the first time since 2003.

Manuel took over for oft-injured Christian Ponder, who left early in the second quarter with a concussion. South Carolina lost running back Marcus Lattimore when he was hit hard on the Gamecocks' first drive by Greg Reid, and their offense was somewhat handicapped for the rest of the night.

South Carolina (now 9-5) was seeking its first 10-win season since 1984.

Here's CBS7's wrap-up from Atlanta...
