Wake Forest vs Florida State: After two weeks on the road, Florida St. is heading back home. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Wake Forest at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. If the point spread is to be believed, Florida St. are looking at one of their easiest games of the year.
Event: College Football
Team: Wake Forest vs Florida State
Date: Saturday, October 20, 2018
Game Time: 12:00 p.m. ET
Florida St. had victory within their grasp but couldn’t quite capture it two weeks ago as the squad lost 27-28 to Miami (Fla.). Meanwhile, Wake Forest came into their this week averaging 38.2 points per game, but Wake Forest fell well short of that average, and it cost them. They were completely outmatched, falling 3-63 to Clemson. Wake Forest were in a tough position by the half, with the score sitting at 0-28.
With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the win. Wake Forest’s offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Florida St. defensive front that amassed five sacks against Miami (Fla.), so we’ll see if they are up to the task.
Florida State football returns home after a close loss to in-state rival Miami Hurricanes to take on Wake Forest as it pursues a bowl bid.
It’s been 35 consecutive seasons. The longest active bowl streak in college football is 35 seasons and the odds of that streak continuing are looking bleaker and bleaker as the weeks pass on.
Last season was saved by a rescheduled game against Louisiana-Monroe but this year it seems to be a struggle to even reach five wins. The game against Wake this weekend will be huge for the 3-3 Noles because this is the easiest game they have moving forward and even then it’s not that simple.
After Wake Forest, Florida State will have to take on No. 3 Clemson, travel to Raleigh, N.C., to take on No. 16 NC State, head to South Bend to take on No. 4 Notre Dame, return home to face Boston College and finish the year off at home against No. 11 Florida. This game becomes a must-win spot for the Noles as well as the Boston College game and one of these other games they will have to secure an upset.
