Both teams are pretty much out of the race for the ACC title. This game will be more about trying to reach the 6 win mark to ensure they have a bowl game after the season concludes.
The Seminoles won last year’s game on the road 26-19. Florida State also has not lost to Wake since 2011 and will be looking for their 7th straight win.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The Demon Deacons have yet to win an ACC game, so they will again be looking for their first. They are manhandled by Clemson last week, losing 3-63. They cannot play much worse than they did against Clemson, so this will be their chance for a bounce back win.
The Demon Deacon offense was almost non existent last week. One category they have been solid in this year is their rushing attack. They are ranked 20th in the country and are averaging 235.5 yards per game. If they can get their run game going, they will have a chance to keep this game close.
Defensively the Demon Deacons has been terrible. In most of the major categories, Wake Forest does not even rank inside the top 100. They allow an average of 500.7 total yards per game and it does not look like things will be getting better any time soon.
Florida State Seminoles
The new era at Florida State has not quite gone the way fans were expecting. After the Seminoles lost 2 of their first 3 games, fans were already calling for Willie Taggart to be fired. They most recently blew a big lead to rival, Miami, who handed them their 3rd ACC loss. Hopefully a bye week allowed the Seminoles to regroup and to show up strong for this game
The only thing worth noting for the Seminoles offense is their passing game. They average 251.2 yards through the air per game, which is only ranked 50th, but also is the only offensive stat that ranks in the top 100.
The best thing going for the Seminoles defense is their ability to stop the run. They rank 9th in the country and are allowing 101.2 rushing yards per game.
