Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo kicked a career-high five field goals in a single game as the top-ranked Seminoles eased to a 43-3 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.

The reigning Lou Groza Award winner also set a school record with 21 consecutive field goals.

The FSU defense dominated the overmatched Demon Deacons (2-4, 0-2) and held them to 126 offensive yards, including 40 rushing. Linebacker Reggie Northrup forced and recovered a fumble and ran it 31 yards for a touchdown that put Florida State up 30-3 in the third quarter.

Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Wake Forest quarterback John Wolford was held to 58 yards passing and an interception.

The game took its toll on Florida State (5-0, 3-0) as leading receiver Rashad Greene (concussion) and starting center Austin Barron (arm) both left and did not return.
