The Wake Forest Demon Deacons will host the #11 Florida State Seminoles today at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Seminoles enter Winston-Salem as a 20-point favorite, and winners of their last 25 ACC games. The Noles' last game was 15 days ago, when they defeated Boston College 14-0.
This game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. Because of the stage, and the opponent, Coach Clawson views this as a great opportunity for his football program. He believes it's an excellent opportunity to show the rest of the country that Wake Forest's football program is improving under his watch, and that there are a talented players on the roster.
The bar to improve on Wake's last three games against Florida State is very low. In the last 3 games against the Seminoles, Wake Forest has averaged just 2.26 yards/play (h/t Tomahawk Nation). Prior to the last three meetings, Wake Forest had won four of the previous six matchups against the Noles. I won't say that I'm excited for this one, but I am curious.
