He had help in the ground game, as Jacques Patrick totaled 120 yards on 19 carries, including a big 69-yard run in the first half.

Wake Forest (4-1, 1-1) was aiming for its first 5-0 start since 2006, when it won the ACC championship.

Tate, who saw limited duty and had his arm in a sling after the game, caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback James Blackman with 53 seconds left and that was the difference as the Seminoles escaped with a 26-19 victory over Wake Forest. Florida State tied it on Ricky Aguayo's 35-yard field goal with 6:24 left, then got a defensive stop to set up the Blackman TD pass.

The Seminoles are trying to win their first game of the season, and it looks like frustrations are mounting. "There is nobody that left there and said, 'Hey man, we played with Florida State.' That locker room is crushed and devastated that we did not find a way to win that football game".

The "Slim Reaper" took over the offense after redshirt sophomore Deondre Francois suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener against Alabama. "Those in our program no longer exist".

Wolford threw for 271 yards on 24-for-34 passing.

FSU has overcome its first 0-2 start in 28 years to cap a disrupted first month due to Hurricane Irma, in front of a sellout crowd of 31,588 people at BB&T Field on Saturday afternoon. His 3-yard run put the Deacs up 12-3 in the first half.
