• Wake Forest visits Tallahassee for the second straight season. In ACC play, the Demon Deacons have averaged just 13.7 points per game vs. FSU when playing at Doak Campbell Stadium, but WF has scored 24 points in each of the last three meetings with the Seminoles in Tallahassee.
• Saturday’s game will mark the first time since joining the ACC in 1992 that the Seminoles won’t be nationally-ranked when they play Wake Forest. In fact, in 12 of the last 14 meetings between the Seminoles and the Demon Deacons, the Seminoles have been ranked in the nation’s top five. This season will also mark the first time in the 24-game series between FSU and Wake (dating back to 1956)that the Demon Deacons are nationally-ranked when playing the Seminoles.
• Florida State quarterback Xavier Lee earned his first career win when the Seminoles downed Virginia 33-0 in the first of four straight November home games for FSU. The win marked FSU’s first shutout since November 1, 2003 when the Seminoles shutout Notre Dame 37-0 in South Bend, Ind.
• The Seminoles will be looking to be bowl-eligible with a win vs. Wake Forest Saturday. FSU has participated in 24 straight bowls games. Wake Forest* is one of six ACC schools already bowl-eligible.Clemson*, Boston College*, Maryland*, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech are the others, meaning four of the six ACC Atlantic Division* teams are already heading to a bowl game.
