Florida State (4-2) vs. Wake Forest (5-1) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 15
Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, FL
Was the Miami game the moment that’ll wake up Florida State?
The defense that’s been so mediocre for the last several weeks came up with a gem when it had to against Miami, holding up just well enough in the tough dogfight of a game to come away with a win. Now it’s time to get the swagger going again before going into a much-needed bye week to get ready for Clemson.
However, the Seminoles are limping into the break.
Not only were they hurting coming into the Miami game, but they got beaten up and battered with the defensive front losing some key parts of the rotation, QB Deondre Francois suffering a shoulder injury, and star defensive back Nate Andrews got knocked out for the year with a pectoral muscle injury.
Wake Forest might be just good enough to not need all the extra help.
The Demon Deacons will go bowling – just needing one more win to get eligible – but they can throw a curveball into the season with a win in Tallahassee. They still have to face Louisville and Clemson, and at least they’ll get their shot at doing something big.
This week, the defense might just be good enough to hold firm against Dalvin Cook and the ground game to make this a fight. The offense doesn’t have enough firepower to do anything like North Carolina or South Florida were able to do against the Noles – forget about Louisville – but against a team in desperate need of a break, Wake Forest will make this a fight for four quarters.
