Could Wake Forest build off its breakthrough bowl season by doing it again?
It’s only been two games, but it appears to be even better.
The Demon Deacons dominated Boston College on the road in a 34-10 win in the ACC opener, and while no one’s putting them in the ACC title game, they should be a tough out with Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville coming up.
They can’t afford a home loss to Utah State.
The Aggies started out with a blowout loss to Wisconsin, and roared back with a blowout win over Idaho State. This game should be more in the middle – it’s a winnable game, but the Aggies have to be air-tight.
One Reason Why Utah State Will Win
Kent Myers really is good enough to win this game by himself.
It was Idaho State, but the veteran quarterback came up with an amazing performance, completing 24-of-26 passes for 323 yards and two scores with a pick – he missed just one throw all game long – along with 85 rushing yards and two scores.
Wake Forest might be playing well, but the offense isn’t explosive – it’s consistent. Myers and Utah State have to keep scoring, keep the offensive production going for a full four quarters, and there have to be no big mistakes. But …
One Reason Why Wake Forest Will Win
The Demon Deacons aren’t screwing up.
Utah State has a problem with penalties, it’s not great so far when it comes to turnover margin, and the defense hasn’t been great on third downs.
Wake Forest is fifth in the nation in turnover margin, and it’s been thrifty when it comes to getting flagged.
It hasn’t lost a fumble yet, with the offense coming up with just one pick. The Demon Deacons aren’t going to give the Aggies the breaks they need.
What’s Going To Happen
The two quarterbacks will put on a show.
Myers has been fantastic, while Wake Forest’s John Wolford is coming off a show, completing 13-of-19 passes for 151 yards and a score, with 92 rushing yards and a touchdown.
The Demon Deacons will be +2 in turnover margin, the defense will be tight, and the great season will roll on.
