N.C. State stuns No. 3 Florida State

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 on 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 with 2:27 left, giving the ball back to Glennon 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, 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 EJ Manuel's desperation heave near the goal line to end it.
