Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said quarterback Kendall Hinton returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since spraining his knee last month. Hinton was limited, but Clawson said they would continue to increase the reps to make sure he does not have a setback. Once Hinton is 100 percent, he will regain his starting job.

Florida State's offense played better in the second half as it was able to put together some drives, but turnovers kept Wake Forest in the game. Credit the defense for holding when put in bad spots, too. If the defense has turned it around, Florida State could upset Clemson after the bye if the offense finds a rhythm.

Wake Forest defense keeps hope alive

Marquel Lee sacks Deondre Francois and forces a fumble that is returned 39 yards by Josh Banks to the FSU 20-yard line. Florida State leads 17-6 with five minutes left.

Mamba Mode, engaged. Florida State defensive end DeMarcus Walker has two sacks in the second half. He entered third in the country with 6.5 sacks, and no doubt the senior has improved his draft stock after electing to return.


FSU extends lead over Wake Forest

Deondre Francois finds Auden Tate for an 11-yard TD throw up the seam. The No. 14 Seminoles lead Wake Forest 17-6 late in the third quarter.


FSU turns it over again in third quarter

Jessie Bates jumps to make an interception of a Deondre Francois pass early in the third quarter. Florida State, which has two third-quarter turnovers, leads Wake Forest 10-6.

Florida State hasn't been able to put together a complete game now seven weeks into the season. Either it's one strong half and one bad one, or one side of the ball is carrying the other. Wake Forest's plan was to be within striking distance in the fourth quarter, and it's looking as if the Deacs will have a chance for the upset as the Seminoles offense struggles to score.

FSU Hail Mary ... falls one yard short

On the last play of the half, Florida State goes for it all. When the ball gets batted into the air, Travis Rudolph makes the catch but gets tackled just short of the goal line. The No. 14 Noles lead Wake Forest 10-3 at halftime.

Ridiculous Hail Mary for FSU... falls one-yard short (1:01)

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

A Florida State Hail Mary nearly works as Travis Rudolph catches a batted pass at the 3-yard line, but he couldn't break into the end zone after making a few Wake Forest tacklers miss. So the score remains 10-3 FSU at half. Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson will take that.
