The resurgent Wake Forest Demon Deacons’ improbable 5-1 start has been the ACC’s feel good storyline thus far. However, when faced with an intrepid and talented FSU Seminole squad, Wake Forest’s Cinderella tale will receive a stern test.
Though twice beaten on the season, FSU brings superior talent and home-field advantage into this pivotal ACC matchup.
Fresh off a thrilling 20-19 triumph over #16 Miami, the Seminoles have their sights set on another quality win.
Meanwhile, following a slew of victories over non-ranked competition, the Demon Deacons will attempt to legitimize their impressive record by downing a ranked opponent.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
One week following their lone setback, Wake Forest trounced Syracuse 28-9 to push their conference record to 2-1.
The Demon Deacons’ staunch pass rush wreaked havoc upon the Orange early and often.
Senior Linebacker Marquel Lee lit Syracuse QB Eric Dungey up with two huge sacks. Overall, Wake Forest recorded five sacks, with five different players getting in on the action.
Offensively, QB John Wolford did just enough through the air (13/22, 140 yards, 77 QB rating) to buttress a strong running attack.
Both Wolford (12 carries, 94 yds, 2 TD) and Freshman Cade Carney (29 carries, 104 yds, 1 TD) provided scoring pop while the defense held serve.
In an absolute thriller vs. intrastate rival Miami, FSU escaped with a 20-19 victory after thwarting what would’ve been a game-tying PAT with 1:38 remaining.
Though bested in total yardage, the Seminoles’ combination of QB Brad Kaaya and WR Stacy Coley (7 rec., 80 yds, 2 TD) provided just enough firepower to secure a second victory on the season opposite top-15 ranked competition.
Against quality opposition, Florida State’s outcome has been mixed.
Opposite highly-ranked Ole Miss and Miami, the Seminoles found ways to prevail. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the team’s two setbacks to Louisville and unranked North Carolina.
Focus has been a sticking point of late for FSU Head Coach Jimbo Fisher. Coming off a big win, FSU cannot afford to overlook a dangerous Wake Forest squad.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Prediction
The week five upset FSU suffered to North Carolina should be enough of a reminder that the same doesn’t happen again vs. Wake this weekend.
Look for an outmatched Demon Deacons squad to provide early fight, but eventually succumb to FSU’s superior skill.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: FSU -16
The winner of this matchup should receive an extra confidence boost heading into the lion’s den of their collective schedules.
While a week 7 Wake Forest upset is possible, it isn’t probable. Even so, Florida State’s mettle will be tested this weekend, how they respond will go a long way in determining their fate against Clemson.
