(Newser) – No. 21 Florida State fell again to their unranked rival, Wake Forest, in a back-and-forth game last night, reports the AP. The Demon Deacons held the Seminoles to just 47 rushing yards while putting up 180 of their own, as quarterback Riley Skinner led Wake Forest on three big drives to secure the game in the second half.

After a scoreless first quarter, Josh Adams put Wake Forest on the board with an 83-yard touchdown run. The Seminoles took over with two consecutive touchdown drives to lead 14-7 at the half, when Skinner countered with back-to-back touchdowns of his own, capped by a field goal that put the game out of Florida's reach.
