Not even Deacon Carroll could have imagined Wake’s gridiron team winning the ACC.

Wake Forest University

It really is hard to believe that Wake Forest won the ACC championship last season. I wonder what kind of odds you could have gotten on them in August of 2006? Of course it is a bit of indictment on the Heels and the rest of the ACC. If Wake can do it with all of their handicaps (private school/tough admissions/same small recruiting pool) than why can’t we? I definitely think that Wake’s success helped end both Bunting and Amato’s tenure. This year’s Demon Deacons got off to a slow start but they have won 4 in a row and if you take a peak at their schedule and then Boston College’s schedule, you realize that they are in the mix for a repeat. Granted the Russian judge thinks BC is too good to lose to anybody but Ohio St. right now…but you just never know. The BCS might have been wrong before. So can the Heels get four more yards and ruin the family’s weekend?

Keys to the Game:

1. Score more points.

2. Play to our strength. It just so happens that Wake has struggled a bit defending the pass and the Heels must give T.J. some time to find his receivers.

3. Make Riley Skinner beat us with his arm. The kid can throw, but if we can’t stop the run we’ll be leaving Winston Salem with a L.

Info: 12:00 Raycom/LF (WRAL), WF is favored by 5.5

Prediction: First road win of the season. UNC 30-26 WFU
