TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State comes off its lone bye week of the season with a matchup against a not-to-be overlooked opponent in the upstart Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

FSU traditionally has had great success in the series but this Wake Forest team enters the ballgame on their home turf with a perfect 3-0 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Demon Deacons have won ballgames because of a potent offensive attack that is highlighted by the nation’s 17th-ranked passing game. Defensively, Wake Forest runs a 3-4 scheme that allows less than 300 yards per game.

The Demon Deacons feature a staggering 31 Florida natives on their active roster so back-home bragging rights will be on the line this Saturday.
