TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- T.J. Yates threw for 439 yards and three touchdowns and Casey Barth kicked his third field goal of the game with 55 seconds left Saturday as North Carolina overcame a near disastrous fourth quarter turnover to surprise No. 24 Florida State 37-35.
Florida State's Dustin Hopkins missed two field goal tries in the fourth quarter, including a possible game-winner from 40 yards with seven seconds left -- wide right, naturally.
Florida State (6-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) took a 35-34 lead with 5:49 left on Lonnie Pryor's second touchdown, which was set up by a botched North Carolina snap.
The Seminoles got the ball at the North Carolina 1 after Mark House's snap sailed over the head of punter C.J. Feagles, who then illegally kicked the ball out of the end zone.
North Carolina (6-3, 3-2) trailed 28-21 at the half.
