FSU scouting report

No. 21 Florida State (4-1, 1-1) at Wake Forest (3-2, 2-1), 7:30, BB&T Field, Winston-Salem, N.C.
The Seminoles have some momentum with four straight wins and look to exorcise some demons against the defending ACC champion Demon Deacons. Wake Forest came to Tallahassee last year and embarrassed the Seminoles, 30-0. FSU hadn't been shut out at home since 1973. That's the pre-Bobby Bowden era, folks. "They just blew us out quickly," Bowden said. Quarterback Xavier Lee was making his third start - and last, as it turned out - in a row, but threw two first-half interceptions and was replaced. (Drew Weatherford didn't do much better, throwing two picks.) Wake Forest, which has won three straight since losing at Boston College and against Nebraska, is winning again by forcing turnovers. It has parlayed 14 turnovers into 44 of its 138 points. Junior cornerback Alphonso Smith (Pahokee) has three picks and has returned each for a score, while junior linebacker Aaron Curry has one interception return for a touchdown. Senior Kenny Moore does it all for the offense. He has a team-high 245 yards on 23 rushes (10.7 average) and three touchdowns, leads the ACC in receiving with 38 catches for 360 yards and a touchdown and has returned a punt for a score. He leads the ACC in all-purpose yards averaging 161.8.
