Wake Forest is set to host the No. 23-ranked Florida State Seminoles for Hall of Fame Weekend on Saturday afternoon at BB&T Field. The Demon Deacons and the Seminoles are set to kick off at 12:30 p.m. The game will be televised on the ACC Network and can also be heard on the Wake Forest Sports Network from IMG College.

The Deacons have won three straight and are coming off a 27-19 win at Boston College last weekend in Chestnut Hill. Wake Forest ended a four-game losing streak to BC and won for the first time at Alumni Stadium since 2003.

Wake Forest opened up a 15-point lead when Tanner Price found Chris Givens for a 47-yard touchdown pass on the Deacons' first possession of the second half. Wake then had to stave off a BC rally before pulling out the conference road win.

Price finished the day 19-of-29 for 252 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Givens hauled in seven catches for 132 yards and his fourth receiving touchdown of the year.

Tailbacks Josh Harris and Brandon Pendergrass each rushed for a touchdown in the win. Harris finished with 60 yards on 19 carries and scored from two yards out on the Deacons' opening drive of the game.

Free safety Josh Bush had his second interception of the season, while strong safety Cyhl Quarles recovered a fumble and made seven stops on the day.

Quickie Notes
- Wake Forest is looking for its first ever 3-0 start to the ACC season. This is the seventh time in the conference's 58-year history that Wake has started 2-0 but in each of the previous six times, the Deacons have lost their next ACC contest. The most recent 2-0 start came back in 2008.

- Running back Josh Harris is looking to become the 34th Demon Deacon to record 1,000 career rushing yards. Harris needs just four yards to reach the 1,000-yard milestone.

Next Up...
Wake Forest remains at home next week as it welcomes Virginia Tech to BB&T Field for Homecoming Weekend. The Deacons have not faced Virginia Tech at home since Wake's ACC Championship season in 2006. Wake then heads back out on the road to face Duke on Oct. 22.
