Wilder, who will miss the game with the Wolfpack after suffering a concussion, has been bothered by shoulder problems ever since the season opener against Pittsburgh. After leading the team with 11 rushing TDs last season, he is just third on the team with with just 226 rushing yards in 2013.

FSU will have the services of starter Devonta Freeman who leads the team with 469 yards and has rushed for four touchdowns. Karlos Williams, who has transitioned from defensive back, will likely be called on to carry more of the load.

Williams is second in rushing with 263 yards on just 31 rushing attempts and leads the Noles with six touchdowns.
