North Carolina State 17,

Georgia Tech 14

-- Jay Davis threw two long touchdown passes to Brian Clark, including an 80-yard go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, and Garland Heath's interception in the end zone with 26 seconds left protected the lead as North Carolina State beat No. 24 Georgia Tech, 17-14, on Thursday night.

Georgia Tech had a first-and-goal at the 2 with 33 seconds left. Reggie Ball fired a pass in the end zone that hit the hands of receiver Calvin Johnson, who was in the air as he was hit by Marcus Hudson. Heath grabbed the ball and got two feet down before going out the back of the end zone.

Johnson set a career high with 10 receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn't enough to keep North Carolina State (2-2, 1-2) from snapping a six-game losing streak in Atlantic Coast Conference games and a four-game losing streak against the Yellow Jackets (3-2, 1-2). The Wolfpack won in Atlanta for the first time since 1988.

Clark, who had only three catches this season because of an ankle injury, had four receptions for 148 yards and the two touchdowns.
