RALEIGH, N.C. -- Mike Glennon found Bryan Underwood for a 2-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 16 seconds left, helping North Carolina State rally to beat third-ranked Florida State 17-16 Saturday night.
The Seminoles (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) appeared poised to strengthen their grip on their division, leading 16-0 at halftime behind a dominating defensive performance. But the Wolfpack (4-2, 1-1) inched closer after halftime before coming up with a game-turning blocked punt by Mike Rose with 2:27 left, giving the ball back to Glennon (30-for-55 passing, 259 yards, two touchdowns) at the FSU 43 with a chance to complete a stunning comeback.
Glennon marched the Wolfpack down the field and completed a pair of fourth-down passes inside the 15, the second when he found Underwood alone over the middle to tie the game and take the lead on the ensuing point-after kick.
FSU drove near midfield in the final seconds, but the Wolfpack defense knocked down E.J. Manuel's desperation heave near the goal line to end it.
The Wolfpack players spilled onto the field in celebration, capping a stunning turn considering how overmatched they looked in the first half. -- AP
