ESPN claims Florida State's 43-3 win over Wake Forest was 'struggle,' 'down to the wire

If we didn't have video, you'd think we were full of it.

Seriously. A 43-3 win by Florida State in which the Seminoles covered the Vegas point spread, outgained the Demon Deacons by 350 yards, and played third-string players, was described by ESPN Sportscenter Anchor Cassidy Hubbarth as:

"The Seminoles struggle and take Wake Forest down to the wire." Really. Watch for yourself.

This comes after Florida State wasn't even included in an ESPN playoff projection this week, despite having played the toughest schedule of any undefeated team to date.

And Saturday night, ESPN moved FSU up only to No. 4 in a playoff projection by the network's Robert Smith.

Do you think this would happen if FSU was an SEC team?

With all of the upsets that happened Saturday, perhaps mentioning Jimbo Fisher's 50th win as FSU's coach, or Florida State avoiding an upset and winning its 21st game in a row would be more appropriate?
