The points didn’t seem to match the performances for FSU Saturday night.
Thanks to four turnovers, the Seminoles had to settle for a ho-hum 17-6 victory over Wake Forest.
Still, there was a lot to remember to the FSU victory, which improved the team’s record to 4-2. Quarterback Deondre Francois threw for 319 yards, wide receiver Travis Rudolph caught 13 passes for 258 yards, and running back Dalvin Cook ran for 115 yards in the victory. In all, FSU had 442 yards of total offense.
An even better sight for the Seminoles was the defense, which held an opponent without a touchdown for the first time all season. Josh Sweat had 6 ½ tackles for the Seminoles.
“Our defense was outstanding and created opportunities. Offensively we got yardage but didn’t finish drives,” Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said.
The Seminoles have a bye week next week, then face Clemson at home the following week.
