Florida State’s aerial attack produced 319 yards and the Seminoles produced a 17-6 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Florida State won on the scoreboard, but lost at the pay window as they failed to cover the -24.0-point spread. The game went UNDER the consensus closing total of 51.5.

Deondre Francois completed 22 of 37 pass attempts for 319 yards for the Seminoles in the win.

Cade Carney rushed for 33 yards for Wake Forest, while John Wolford added 20 yards. John Wolford threw for 184 yards for the Demon Deacons, while receivers Cortez Lewis and Tabari Hines had 109 and 42 yards respectively.

Wake Forest lost the offensive yardage battle to Florida State 442-252 yards in Saturday’s game. Florida State had more first downs as that total ended up 27-13.

Florida State led the time of possession tally, as the game finished as a 32:26-27:34 split in that important category.

Next game, Florida State takes its act home to face Clemson looking for another win. For Wake Forest, they head home to face Army.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State expended a lot of energy during last week’s emotionally charged, come-from-behind victory against rival Miami.

And it showed Saturday.

The No. 14 Seminoles looked sluggish in their second home ACC game of the season, but got the job done with a ho-hum 17-6 victory against Wake Forest.

With the win, the Seminoles improved to 5-2 on the season and finally reached .500 in the ACC at 2-2 after an 0-2 conference start. The victory Saturday was also the Seminoles’ fifth straight in the series against the Demon Deacons since Wake Forest last beat Florida State in 2011.

Florida State now heads to a bye week with an enormous showdown with No. 3 Clemson looming in two weeks. And Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher knows how big it was to have that type of momentum before a rivalry game.

“It is huge. Every game in college football is now coming to the wire,” Fisher said. “There are good football teams everywhere. There are good teams and coaches, and don’t ever underestimate the ability to win football games.”

Florida State wideout Travis Rudolph led the offense with a career-high 13 catches for 238 yards and running back Dalvin Cook added 115 yards rushing.

“I feel like once I get the ball in my hands, I’m a running back — I’ve got to make the man miss. I definitely pride myself on that (making defenders miss a tackle and get yards after the catch),” said Rudolph, who turned in the fourth-best receiving game in school history, while his 238 yards were the most by a Seminoles receivers since Peter Warrick against Clemson in 1997.

“Coach Fisher and (receivers coach Lawrence) Dawsey tell me all the time, ‘You’re a great receiver. You just have to make the most of your opportunities.”

The Seminoles’ defense also didn’t allow a touchdown to the Wake Forest offense for the fifth straight game at Doak Campbell Stadium. The Demon Deacons’ offense has failed to reach the end zone in every game at Tallahassee since 2007, including falling twice in shutouts (2010, 2012).

Wake Forest (5-2, 2-2) only managed two field goals Saturday by Mike Weaver (34 and 29 yards). With Florida State ahead 17-6 with 5:03 left, Weaver missed a 40-yarder that would’ve made it a one-score game.

Demon Deacons quarterback John Wofford was 16 of 34 for 184 yards and two picks, and receiver Cortez Lewis led the offense with six catches for a team-high 109 yards.

“When you play a team of that quality, you can’t beat yourself. But we battled our butts off,” said Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson, whose team was enjoying a 5-1 start for the first time in 10 years before Saturday’s loss. “We had the ball how many times in the red zone and came up empty with touchdowns? That is frustrating.”

Wake Forest also had a kickoff return called back in the second quarter by a penalty.

“You play a team the quality of FSU, you can’t beat yourself,” Clawson said.

Credit a turnaround by the Florida State defense for much of Saturday’s win, as it held an opponent to 19 points of fewer for the second straight game — that after giving a combined 135 points in its previous three outings.

The Seminoles were paced by eight tackles from defensive back Trey Marshall, and they also got a surprisingly big game from defensive back Ermon Lane, who was moved from receiver on offense to defense two weeks ago. Lane finished with seven tackles, while fellow defensive backs Marquez White and Tavarus McFadden both recorded interceptions in the win.

“(Ermon Lane) has done a tremendous job,” Fisher said. “He’s actually more natural on that side of the ball than the offensive side. He is playing good football.”

Wake’s defense forced four Florida State turnovers — three fumbles and an interception — as defensive lineman Josh Banks and defensive backs Essang Bassey and Ryan Janvion all notched recoveries. Defensive back Jessie Banks recorded the pick of quarterback Deondre Francois, and linebacker Marquel Lee — the reigning ACC Linebacker of the Week following 15 stops last week against Syracuse — led the Demon Deacons with nine solo tackles Saturday, including 2 1/2 for loss.

The Seminoles scored just twice — a 2-yard TD run by Francois in the second quarter and an 11-yard passing score from Francois to Auden Tate in the third — and added one field goal (29 yards) from kicker Ricky Aguayo. Francois finished 22 of 37 for 319 yards with one touchdown and one pick in addition to the TD run.

The game opened at a snail’s pace as Wake Forest punted on its initial two drives and Wofford was intercepted by White on its third.

The Seminoles punted after their first possession and Aguayo missed a 47-yard field goal on the second. Florida State capitalized on White’s first pick of the season when Aguayo made his second field goal attempt to open the scoring 3-0 as the first quarter drew to a close.

Wofford threw his second interception of the first half on Wake’s next drive. McFadden snagged his FBS-leading fifth pick of the year, but the Seminoles gave the ball right back.

Two plays after the second Wake turnover, Cook caught a slip screen over the middle and was drilled by Demon Deacons defensive tackle Josh Banks, causing Cook to fumble — the first of his two cough-ups Saturday. The ball was recovered by Bassey, and the Demon Deacons tied the game 3-3 a few minutes later on a 34-yard field goal by Weaver.

Turnovers were the theme of the first half as Wake Forest committed its third with 5:44 to go before intermission. Punter Dom Maggio bobbled the snap on the Demon Deacons’ own 35 yard line, and Amir Rasul pounced on it.

Five plays and 26 yards later, Francois scored the game’s first TD with a scamper from 2 yards out to put the Seminoles ahead 10-3 — which is where the game stood at halftime.

Florida State lost a key member of its offense in the second quarter, however, as receiver Jesus Wilson was carted to the locker room. He did not return to the contest.

School officials said Wilson, who leads Florida State with 29 catches with 388 yards this year, suffered a foot injury during a routine out-route late in the second quarter. Wilson immediately fell down on the sideline before being taken to the medical tent.

“I don’t know,” Fisher said when asked about the severity of the injury. “I’ll have to wait and see.”
