Why Syracuse Will Win
Wake Forest is reeling.
That might be a bit of an overstatement, but the Demon Deacons have lost three straight with way too many turnovers – 14 in the last four games with eight against Louisville – and way too many problems holding up defensively.

Why Wake Forest Will Win
Syracuse is really reeling.
The defensive front is banged up, the offense has sputtered and stopped, and the team overall has hit a wall with all the injuries losing four straight and failing to get more than 160 yards of total O over the last two games.

The O just won’t be there.
