WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — The only thing standing between surging Florida State and another trip to the ACC championship game is depleted Wake Forest.
Clinching another trip to Charlotte would be nice, but the third-ranked Seminoles are thinking much bigger than that.
Florida State (8-0, 6-0) can wrap up the Atlantic Division title and claim their third league title game berth in four years with a victory over the five-touchdown-underdog Demon Deacons (4-5, 2-4) on Saturday.
The Seminoles have won 10 straight since last year, and are coming off a blowout of their biggest ACC rival. None of their final four opponents have winning records.
But coach Jimbo Fisher knows that for his team remain in the national title chase, it can't just coast to the finish line.
