TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (AP) - Kevin Parks ran 10 yards for a touchdown with 1:16 left Saturday to give Virginia the lead and Florida State's Dustin Hopkins missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt in the closing seconds as the Cavaliers upset of No. 23 Florida State 14-23 to set up a showdown with intrastate rival Virginia Tech a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.

Florida State (7-4, 5-3 ACC) got two fortunate breaks on its final drive that gave Hopkins, the ACC's leading scorer, a chance to win it.

An facemask penalty on Virginia allowed the Seminoles to convert a fourth down and a pass initially ruled complete in bounds and would have killed the clock was overturned by replay and rule incomplete.

Another Virginia penalty moved Hopkins' kick 5 yards close, but he boomed it wide left with 3 seconds left.

Virginia (8-3, 5-3) snapped Florida State's five-game winning streak with its fourth straight win.
