Wake Forest is off to a 5-1 start for the first time since 2006 and would open many more eyes with a victory at 16th-ranked Florida State on Saturday in an ACC matchup. The Demon Deacons rebounded from their only loss to North Carolina State by rolling over Syracuse 28-9 last week and Florida State hopes it has turned around its season after winning a 20-19 thriller at Miami (Fla.).

Freshman running back Cade Carney has rushed for 100 yards twice in the three games he was not sidelined by knee injury, including 104 last Saturday versus Syracuse, to support sophomore Matt Colburn (361 yards). Wolford has thrown for 826 yards, completing 57.2 percent of his passes, and rushed for another 276 – 94 in the win against the Orange. The defense is led by senior safety Ryan Janvion (309 career tackles) and senior linebacker Marquel Lee, who registered a career-high 15 tackles with two sacks last time out.

Cook got off to a slow start, but has worked his way to first in the nation with 1,130 yards from scrimmage — 785 and seven touchdowns on the ground. Freshman quarterback Deondre Francois continues to impress while taking punishment, completing 63 percent of his passes for nine scores with two interceptions and running for 150 yards. Senior end DeMarcus Walker continues to lead the defense with eight tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks, but the Seminoles have lost senior safety Nate Andrews for the season due to a torn pectoral.

Florida State leads the series 27-6-1 after four straight wins and the Demon Deacons’ last victory over a ranked team was Oct. 8, 2011 against the Seminoles.

Wake Forest sophomore WR Cortez Lewis has recorded 11 of his 15 receptions in the last two games.

Florida State senior WR Jesus Wilson leads the team with 29 catches and boasts 132 in his career, tied for 10th in school history — six shy of eighth.
