In a game where Florida State was missing key players in their wide receiver corps, including two starters, Keon Coleman stepped up to the challenge and delivered an outstanding performance. Despite the Wake Forest defense's concerted efforts to limit him, Coleman proved once again why he is a rising star in college football.
From the very beginning of the game, quarterback Jordan Travis showed his trust in Coleman by targeting him on his first four passes. This continued throughout the game as Travis consistently looked for his top target, resulting in another highlight reel performance for the talented receiver.
Early in the second quarter, Coleman made an impressive play that extended Florida State's lead. He caught a hitch route at the line of scrimmage, effortlessly shook off a defender, and burst down the field with incredible speed. To add insult to injury, Coleman delivered a disrespectful stiff-arm to another Demon Deacon, leaving no doubt about his dominance on the field.
This touchdown marked Coleman's eighth of the season, solidifying his position as the ACC's leading scorer. With 35 catches for 518 yards, he has become the go-to receiver for the Seminoles, showcasing his exceptional skills and playmaking ability.
Not only has Coleman been a standout player, but the entire Florida State team has also been outperforming Wake Forest in terms of total offense. Currently, the Seminoles have outgained the Demon Deacons 182-86 in yards, with a significant advantage of 131-19 in passing yards.
As the game progresses, Florida State maintains a comfortable lead over Wake Forest. With Keon Coleman leading the charge, the Seminoles are poised for another impressive victory.
