TALLAHASEE, Fla. – The No. 12 Florida State Seminoles could only watch as North Carolina kicker Nick Weiler kicked a 54-yard field goal with four seconds left in the game to shock the Seminoles in Tallahassee, 37-35.

FSU (3-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 21-0 early as UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky led three scoring drives for the Tar Heels.

The Seminoles rallied behind three Dalvin Cook touchdowns as they mounted a comeback attempt.

FSU quarterback Deondre Francois gave the 'Noles a 35-34 lead, scoring on a two-yard touchdown run with just :23 left in the game.

That last FSU score had seemingly sealed a comeback win for Florida State, but Weiler had different plans.

Weiler celebrated his game-winning kick by mockingly doing the FSU tomahawk chop as he ran down the field.

UNC's win snapped Florida State's 22-game winning streak dating to 2012.

The Seminoles next face the undefeated Miami Hurricanes in Miami Gardens.
