BLACKSBURG, Va.: E.J. Manuel hit Rashad Greene with a slant pass that Greene took 39 yards for a touchdown with 40 seconds to play and Florida State survived a scare to beat Virginia Tech on Thursday night.

The Seminoles (9-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their fourth straight and moved within a victory against Maryland on Nov. 17 of securing a spot in the ACC Championship Game Dec. 1.

The Hokies (4-6, 2-4) lost for the fifth time in six games and will have to beat Boston College and Virginia in their final regular-season games to qualify for a bowl game for the 20th straight year.

The Hokies had gone ahead 22-20 on Cody Journell’s 21-yard field goal with 2:19 remaining. The kick capped a 52-yard drive that stalled when Logan Thomas ran for 2 yards on third-and-3 from the 6.
