FSU football opponent Q&A: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Florida State and Seminole faithful were dealt a gut punch last week in the loss to Jacksonville State, but the season marches on. We’re very fortunate to have the SB Nation network of team sites to work with during game weeks. This week we’re chatting with Cameron Debro, a staff writer over at Blogger so Dear, SBN’s blog for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. We talked about X’s and O’s, playing each other for the first time since 2019, and how prepared Wake is for their first test of the season.

Matchups to Watch this Weekend for Wake Forest Football

When you boil it down, football is about blocking and tackling. Can you block your man, and can you make the tackle when you need to?. While this weekend doesn’t have the allure of a 2-0 FSU team coming to town, or even a 1-1 team that played it close with a top 15 team, the implications are all the same: it’s the first game of the ACC schedule in what appears to be a put up or shut up year for Wake Forest.
