Florida State is coming off of a dominant win over Boston College in Week 4. Quarterback Jordan Travis threw for a new career high in passing yardage while running back Trey Benson scored 3 total touchdowns.
Wake Forest fell in double overtime at home to Clemson last weekend. However, the Demon Deacons proved they still have arguably the top offense in the ACC. Sam Hartman threw for 6 touchdowns in the loss and was repeatedly able to take advantage of Clemson’s secondary.
The winner of this game will remain a serious contender for the ACC Atlantic title. Florida State hasn’t reached the ACC title game since 2014. Wake Forest won the Atlantic last season.
Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
