Florida State Football: Winners and Losers from Seminoles' Loss vs. Wake Forest
Seminole nation experienced another tough loss this Saturday when Florida State fell to Wake Forest.
This loss just added even more frustration to what could have been a remarkable season for the 'Noles. Now sitting at 2-3, the Seminoles have a lot of work to do and many problems to fix. I will mention some of the winners and losers for both teams in a Deacon victory over the 'Noles.

Winners for Wake Forest
Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price had a fantastic day against the Seminole defense. Price went 21-of-35 for 233 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He was able to set up big plays for the Demon Deacons through the air, which the 'Noles had a hard time stopping.
Josh Harris had a monster game on the ground against the 'Noles, as he gathered 136 yards on 13 carries. He averaged 10.5 yards per carry and broke a 57 yard run. Harris had a major impact on this game because he helped set up the passing game with establishing a solid run game.
Chris Givens was a key in the Demon Deacons victory over Florida State. He had six receptions for 101 yards. He caught one touchdown and had a long of 40 yards. This offense definitely clicked this afternoon and dominated the Seminole defense.
Winners for Florida State
Rashad Greene and Christian Green had fantastic days for the Seminoles. Rashad had 12 receptions for 163 yards and 1 touchdown. Christian Green had four receptions for 102 yards and a long of 41 yards. These two receivers definitely showed that they can be a dominate duo at the wide receiver position. In a loss, these two players were a shining spot in a gloomy Seminoles loss.

The biggest loser from this game to me was FSU's defense. This is the second straight game where the defense has allowed 35 points to an opposing opponent. The Seminoles needed the defense that played against Oklahoma to show up and they have been non existent of late. They gave up over 100 yards on the ground and over 250 yards in the air.
The Seminoles need to fix these defensive woes as soon as possible. If this continues, this season will be one of the biggest disappointments in the past decade.
