After facing the likes of Murray State and Savannah State, the Florida St. Seminoles are facing their first test of the season against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The offensive line has helped the Seminoles runners gain 452 yards for 11 touchdowns, averaging 6.92 yards per carry.
Wake Forest runs a 3-4 defense that likes to shift a lot and take a lot of angles and stunts to keep an offensive line off balance. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher talked about the challenge his offensive line faces on Saturday:
No doubt. When you go to a 3-4 team, it's definitely a different scheme. Not as many people play it, there are little nuances you have to understand, and they do a really nice job of it.
The Seminoles hope that their offensive line's size and athleticism will negate the Demon Deacons' defensive adjustments. The Seminoles will face the Demon Deacons on Saturday in Tallahassee. Kickoff is scheduled for noon with television coverage on ESPN.
