The Florida State Seminoles have yet to be tested in 2012, but that could change when they open ACC play against Wake Forest on Saturday. While the Seminoles are favored by more than three touchdowns in this matchup, they should be wary of a Demon Deacons team that bested them in 2011.

Florida State turned the ball over five times in last year's meeting, and that's something the Seminoles will need to correct if they want the outcome to be different this time around. Wake Forest has a solid quarterback in Tanner Price and its offense can be dangerous, though its undersized defense figures to have trouble slowing the Florida State attack.

Game Time & Date: Noon ET, Saturday, Sept. 15

TV: ESPN
