College football preview: No. 1 Florida State vs. Wake Forest, 3:30 Saturday, Ch. 28, 1040-AM

No. 1 FSU vs. Wake Forest, 3:30, Ch. 28, 1040-AM

Wake Forest (2-3, 0-1 ACC) hasn't beaten a ranked team since 2011 — when then-No. 22 Florida State left Winston-Salem with a 35-30 loss. The Demon Deacons have lost nine straight against Top 25 teams, have never defeated a No. 1 team, and the highest-ranked team they've beaten was then-No. 4 Tennessee in 1946.

Watch out for … The Marios. The Seminoles (4-0, 2-0) return starting DE Mario Edwards and No. 2 RB Mario Pender after both missed last week's game at N.C. State with concussions. Edwards is much needed along a defensive line that has been banged up recently. His numbers aren't earth-shattering, but the former No. 1 recruit in the country has elite athleticism and the versatility to play on the interior or end of the line. Pender adds punch to a run game that has struggled.
