ATLANTA – Iain Vance kicked a 33-yard field goal in overtime to give Georgia State a 20-17 win over North Carolina Central on Saturday.
It was the second game-winning field goal of the season for Vance, who also had a 32-yard field goal in the second period. The senior has now made 10 of 12 field goals and his kick in overtime enabled the Panthers (5-2) to extend their winning streak to five games.
North Carolina Central's Frankie Cardelle, who sent the game to overtime by making a career-long 44-yard field goal with five-seconds remaining in regulation, missed a 45-yarder in the first portion of the overtime to give Georgia State a chance.
Cardelle's game-tying kick at the end of the fourth quarter came after the Eagles (2-4) had driven 36 yards in the final 30 seconds with no timeouts.
