ATLANTA (TheBlaze/AP) — With 6 seconds left in Saturday night's tie game against underdog Georgia Tech, Roberto Aguayo — one of the most accurate kickers in the country — attempted to win the contest for ninth-ranked Florida State with a 56-yard field goal.

But the kick was low, and Georgia Tech's Rod Rook-Chuncong managed to get a hand on it.

Amid the celebration, Georgia Tech's Lance Austin ran back to retrieve the ball, which was rolling along inside the 25-yard line.

Then he took off the other way in front of the Tech bench. He avoided Aguayo's diving attempt, then cut back on the final guy who had a shot at him to win the game 22-16 for Georgia Tech (3-5, 1-4).
