(NEW YORK) — Third-ranked Florida State will travel to Wake Forest to take on the Demon Decons on Saturday afternoon.
Wake Forest is 4-5 this season and Florida State is hoping to remain undefeated.
”This is a very good football team,” FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher said. ”I’ll say this, I love our football team. I love our football team.”
Fisher does not want his team to look past the Decons.
“It’s up to (the team leadership) to make sure we understand the importance of every game,” Fisher said. “Hopefully we’ve gotten that across, and we’re going to practice the same way for every game no matter who (the opponent) is.”
Wake Forest will come into the game a heavy underdog, but the team is looking forward to the challenge of upsetting an 8-0 team.
“Whenever you play Florida State it’s going to be a big game, whether they are No. 2 in the country or whether they’re having a down year,” defensive end Kristopher Redding said. “We’ve always been underdogs in the game.”
