College football preview: No. 3 Florida State at Wake Forest, noon Saturday, Ch. 28, 1040-AM

No. 3 FSU at Wake Forest, noon, Ch. 28, 1040-AM

Florida State (8-0, 6-0 ACC) can clinch the Atlantic Division title and its third berth in the conference championship game in four years with a win. And, in the wake of Oregon's loss at Stanford, the Seminoles can stay in the driver's seat for a spot in the BCS title game. Wake Forest (4-5, 2-4) is trying to claw back into the bowl conversation and earn the program's second victory against a top-10 team. The Seminoles' last ACC loss came in their most recent visit to North Carolina, a 17-16 setback against N.C. State in October 2012, which derailed last year's BCS title game hopes.

Watch out for … FSU's offensive line against Wake Forest's defensive front. The Demon Deacons will have to take something away from the Seminoles' potent offense to stay in the game, and it starts up front with undersized (5 feet 11) but quick NT Nikita Whitlock. If he can't beat blocks and irritate QB Jameis Winston, Wake could be in for a long day.
