The Tigers held a Winston-less FSU team to 318 yards on offense.

Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher told SiriusXM’s College Sports Nation on Thursday, “You want to know the truth? Wake is the best defense we’ve played. Wake is very good on defense. And probably the best set of corners that we’ve faced. At different places, other teams have been more talented. Wake was very talented in the secondary. Brought multiple blitzes, multiple looks. They’ve got a corner, probably the top senior corner in the southeast. Very talented, one (corner) had 35 starts, one had 33, the other field corner is a very good player and they got pressure at times. And we took some shots and remember (we’re) not playing with the same receiver experience as we did a year ago.”

Do you agree that Wake Forest has a better overall defense than Clemson?

Here are game stats for the Florida State versus Wake Forest Game last week (FSU won 43-3).

Here are game stats for the Florida State versus Clemson game on 9/20. (FSU won 23-17 in OT)
