ATLANTA (AP) – D.J. Shockley threw two touchdown passes to Sean Bailey and Bryan McClendon set up another score with a blocked punt to give Georgia a 34-14 win over LSU in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Fla. St. 27, (5) Va. Tech 22

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – The constant questions. The stinging criticism. The growing cries for change. They’re all history.

At least for now.

The Florida State Seminoles are conference champions – again.

Willie Reid returned a punt 83 yards for a touchdown, the defense continually harassed Marcus Vick and Florida State upset No. 5 Virginia Tech 27-22 Saturday night in the inaugural Atlantic Coast Conference title game.

The Seminoles (8-4) snapped a three-game losing streak – the program’s first since 1983 – and won the league title for the 12th time in 14 years. They turned around a disappointing season and earned a Bowl Championship Series berth in the Orange Bowl, where they likely will face No. 4 Penn State.
