Florida State’s next home game will again kick off at 3:30 p.m., the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday.

That’s for the Oct. 15 match-up at Doak Campbell Stadium between the Seminoles and Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Both teams are coming off losses as FSU fell at home on Saturday against North Carolina 37-35 while Wake Forest lost on the road at North Carolina State, 33-16.

FSU is currently 3-2 and 0-2 in ACC play while Wake Forest is 4-1 and 1-1 in conference. The Demon Deacons haven’t defeated FSU since 2011 and haven’t scored a touchdown in Tallahassee since 2006. Florida State won a highly-competitive game last season in Winston-Salem, 24-16.

Wake Forest will be at home this week to face Syracuse on Saturday while FSU hits the road for the third time in four games to face No. 10 Miami.

The contest between the Seminoles and Demon Deacons will air on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. That decision will be made by the conference and networks by Sunday.
