For the fifth year in a row, the ACC Atlantic division showdown between Florida State and Wake Forest will be a 3:30 p.m. EST kickoff.

The announcement was made on Monday by the ACC. The Oct. 20 contest in Tallahassee will air on ESPN2.

Florida State will look to win a seventh straight game over the Demon Deacons when the teams meet one week from Saturday. FSU needed a last-minute touchdown pass from James Blackman to Auden Tate last season to pull off a thrilling 26-19 victory and avoid falling to 0-3.

The last three meetings between the schools have been competitive with two decided by one score and the last contest in Tallahassee being a 17-6 victory for the Seminoles. Wake Forest hasn’t scored a touchdown at Doak Campbell Stadium since shutting out FSU in 2006, 30-0.

Both teams will be idle this week.
