Breaking down and analyzing the 2017 Wake Forest Demon Deacons football schedule
2017 Wake Forest Demon Deacons Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario
With a win at Boston College, the Demon Deacons look like 2016 isn’t a fluke with a 4-0 start – beating Appalachian State along the way on the road. No, there isn’t a win over Florida State or Clemson, but with a week to prepare, they do get by Georgia Tech before mucking it up in a great home victory over Louisville. They win two of their November games, with a victory over Duke to close out a sensational 8-4 regular season.
2017 Wake Forest Demon Deacons Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario
The defense isn’t as good, the offense sputters, and the Demon Deacons lose slugfests against Boston College and Appalachian State on the road before getting demolished by Florida State and Clemson. The week off doesn’t matter, and losses at Georgia Tech and Notre Dame – sandwiched around a home game against Louisville – ends all bowl hopes before November kicks into high gear. There’s enough talent in place to avoid a total wipeout, but they go 4-8 in a stepback season.
