Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles get set to host the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Doak Campbell Stadium this Saturday. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Winston has often been the center of controversy with the team over the past couple of years, but with his performance last week, it is understandable why Florida State continue to stick with him and believe in him.
After being suspended one game in week 3 for making lewd comments while on campus, Winston helped the Seminoles come back from a 17 point deficit in their wild win over North Carolina State last week. Now Florida State can focus on a Wake Forest team that is looking to snap their seven game road losing streak.
Jameis Winston in his last performance went 26 of 38 for 365 yards and four touchdowns in his return, but did commit three turnovers including a late interception. Florida St might not need that type of performance from Jameis against Wake Forest, but the Seminoles will definitely look to keep extending their winning streak of 21 games as it’s been almost two years since Florida State’s last loss. They enter this game with 18 straight victories against ACC opponents.
According to ticket data provided by Razorgator, Florida State football tickets for this game against Wake Forest have a secondary market average price of only $67 with a get-in price of $25. For a #1 ranked team, you’d expect a bit higher prices, but Florida State actually has the cheapest college football tickets of any preseason ranked #1 team since 2011.
Wake Forest come into this game with a 2-3 record and have the worst running game in the nation at just 29.2 rushing yards per game. Their freshman quarterback John Wolford already has ten picks in 179 attempts this season and has been sacked 24 times in just five games, an average of just under five sacks per game. Wake Forest hasn’t had much success at all against Florida State in their last two meetings, losing by a combined score 111-3.
