Football Game Notes - Wake Forest vs. Florida State
Oct. 4, 2011
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.
- 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.
