FSU football moved to 5-2 with its ugly 17-6 win over Wake Forest on Saturday. Check out the best photos from the win.

It wasn’t a pretty win, but it’s better than the alternative I suppose. FSU football staggered to the finish line with a banged up quarterback, and l lost one of its top receivers in Jesus “Bobo” Wilson during the game due to injury.

Admittedly, this was the best Wake Forest team in years on paper, as they came into the game at 5-1 on the season.

However, there’s absolutely no reason why the FSU offense should have only scored 17 points on the day.

At least the FSU defense showed up.

Check out the best photos from Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee.

FSU football safety Derwin James remains active with the team even though he’s out due to injury. Dalvin Cook took a beating on the day with 115 yards on 25 carries, and one reception for 11 yards.

FSU quarterback Deondre Francois was hit repeatedly and sacked three times on the day while playing hurt. It’s debatable if Francois should have been playing in the game as it was clear he was in extreme pain on multiple occasions.

Senior Jesus “Bobo” Wilson was injured during the game and didn’t return. It looked like it could have been an achilles injury. He came into the Wake Forest game leading the team in receptions and yards.

Both Ermon Lane and Tavarus McFadden had big days on Saturday for the FSU defense. Lane finished with seven tackles and a pass defended.

McFadden got his fifth interception of the season which is the most for a cornerback in the Jimbo Fisher era.
