EJ Manuel eludes Deacon defenders for a gain.
EJ Manuel continued to look like a poised and polished passer and runner.
Early in the game, Wake Forest's punts landed multiple times near the Florida State end zone. Despite this obstruction, Manuel ran and threw from this danger area to not only prevent safeties, but gain first downs.
Manuel's most impressive pass was a laser to Rashad Greene for 30 yards. EJ's timing was perfect, as a second later a Demon Deacon would have intercepted the pass for a touchdown.
His mind-boggling run would have to be when he received a high snap in the Seminole end zone and then rushed for 22 yards in the second quarter. This came right after Manuel fumbled the ball, proving Manuel won't make the same mistakes as before in games. It was the only dent in an otherwise invincible performance.
