Florida State is the 11th ranked team in the nation and they are a big 19.5-point road favorite facing Wake Forest. Wake is coming off a loss and they are already 0-1 in AAC play with their loss to Syracuse in the 2nd game of the season.
FSU is not only ranked and a big favorite in this game, but they are also coming off a bye so they will be rested for this conference match up.
Wake Forest was embarrassed last season at Florida State where they lost to the Seminoles 43-3.
What is even worse is the last time these 2 teams met at Wake Forest the Seminoles crushed the Demon Deacons 59-3.
Even though Wake Forest has started 2 QB’s this season they have gotten good production, as they rank 25th in the nation in passing yards per game.
John Wolford has been the starter for most of the season and he is a question mark in this game after going down with an ankle injury in the last game, which was a 31-24 loss to Indiana.
The Demon Deacons do have 3 players that have over 200 receiving yards on the season, but FSU ranks 4th in the nation in pass defense that is led by CB Jalen Ramsey, who is one of the top CB’s in the nation.
Wake does not feature much of a rushing offense 108th in the nation in rushing yards per game, so whoever is QB must have a good game and the D has to play well for the Demon Deacons to have any chance at the big upset.
FSU is led by senior QB Everett Golson, who has not been spectacular this season, but he has 6 TD and has not thrown a pick.
He has a solid WR corps, but the main player that the Demon Dracons have to key on is RB Dalvin Cook, who has 476 yards after only 3 games with 5 TD and is averaging 7.4 yards per carry.
Cook may have a big game, as Wake has a good pass defense ranking 11th in the nation, but they rank 55th in rushing defense.
In their loss to Indiana Wake Forest gave up 211 rushing yards.
Wake’s 2 wins have come over Elon and Army, so how will they fare against a ranked FSU squad? Not well at all, as this game will get ugly just like the last2 match ups.
