It’s tune-up time for a veteran Wake Forest team needing to get off to a hot start.
The big boys on the Demon Deacon schedule come in the second half of the season, and they all seem to by on the road.
After the first four games of the season – at Clemson, at Georgia Tech, at Notre Dame, at Syracuse – with home games against Florida State and Louisville thrown in there.
That means they’ve got to win the ACC opener at Boston College next week, and they can’t drop the dates with Utah State and Appalachian State.
And they have to rip up the Blue Hose.
Just 2-10 last season, Presbyterian has a ton of work to do on both sides of the ball, but especially for an offense that scored more than 17 points just once, and was held to ten points or fewer eight times.
One Reason Why Presbyterian Will Win
The team might be bad again – at least early on – but at least it’s experienced.
Seven starters are back offensively, led by dangerous all-around playmaking receiver DaShawn Davis. Points might be hard to come by for the Blue Hose, but Wake Forest isn’t exactly going to be Texas Tech winging the ball around the yard.
There might be a slew of veterans for Wake Forest, too, but the offense still has to prove it can be more efficient. If Presbyterian can put up a few points early and slow things down, this could be more interesting than Demon Deacon fans might like.
One Reason Why Wake Forest Will Win
Again, Presbyterian just won’t be able to score, especially against this Demon Deacon D.
It’s going to be a game of transition with so many new parts on the front seven, but the secondary won’t allow much – at least this week – and the pressure will be there from all sides.
As long as the offense is able to keep converting first down plays and control the clock, the defense will take care of the rest.
What’s Going To Happen
Good luck, Presbyterian. Wake Forest will get a chance to play both quarterback options – Kendall Hinton and John Wolford – to keep the debate going, but it’ll be the defense that makes this an afternoon of light and breezy fun.
