Price, Harris lead Wake past No. 23 FSU, 35-30
Question of the Day
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Tanner Price threw three touchdown passes, Josh Harris rushed for 136 yards and Wake Forest upset No. 23 Florida State 35-30 on Saturday.
Price was 21 of 35 for 233 yards with touchdowns covering 22 yards to Chris Givens, 2 yards to Tommy Bohanon and 8 yards to Terence Davis to give the Demon Deacons (4-1, 3-0) their best start to ACC play in school history.
Wake Forest _ a 10-point underdog _ trailed for only about five minutes of the first half, led the entire second half and rolled up 391 yards against one of the ACC’s toughest defenses. Florida State (2-3, 0-2) entered giving up just 257 total yards per game.
E.J. Manuel, playing for the first time in three weeks, replaced Clint Trickett late in the first half and finished 19 of 35 for 286 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
His 2-yard scoring pass to Kenny Shaw made it a five-point game with 54 seconds left, but he overthrew Nick O’Leary in the corner of the end zone on the two-point conversion.
Givens then recovered the onside kick for Wake Forest to seal it.
Manuel also threw a 46-yard touchdown pass to Rashad Greene for the turnover-prone Seminoles. The preseason ACC favorites have lost three straight for the first time since 2009.
James Wilder Jr. and Ty Jones had 3-yard touchdown runs. But Florida State turned it over five times _ four interceptions and a fumble _ and Wake Forest turned those giveaways into 17 points.
Davis caught two touchdown passes for the Demon Deacons. His first, a 30-yarder from receiver Michael Camapanaro on a trick play, gave Wake Forest the lead for good at 9-7 nearly 3 minutes into the second quarter.
His second score, a quick slant in the end zone from Price, pushed the lead to 32-17 just 10 seconds into the fourth.
And after Jones’ short scoring run pulled the Seminoles to 32-24 with 12:37 left, the Demon Deacons countered with an 11-play drive that chewed up six minutes. Jimmy Newman’s 32-yard field goal made it an 11-point game with 6:27 remaining.
Givens finished with six receptions for 101 yards while Harris _ the first 100-yard rusher allowed by Florida State this season _ lit up the ACC’s toughest run defense with runs of 42 and 57 yards to set up touchdown passes by Price.
Greene had 12 catches for 163 yards with a touchdown for the Seminoles, who couldn’t overcome their first five-turnover game since 2009.
Trickett, a redshirt freshman making his second straight start, was pulled after his third turnover _ two interceptions and a fumble _ in favor of Manuel, who missed Florida State’s last game with an injured left shoulder.
Wake Forest had minus-1 yard rushing yet led 16-14 at halftime, largely because the Demon Deacons turned Trickett’s three turnovers into 10 points.
That’s when coach Jimbo Fisher brought in Manuel, and the dual-threat senior had his most productive drive of the day, an 88-yard march in 54 seconds. His scoring pass to Greene pulled Florida State to within two at the break.
