What to know
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have had a week off and are no doubt ready to hit the field again. The Demon Deacons and the Virginia Cavaliers will compete in an ACC battle Saturday at 4 p.m. ET at Truist Field. Wake Forest should still feel good after a win, while Virginia will try to rectify the ship.
A balanced attack led Wake Forest over the Campbell Fighting Camels quarterly on their way to victory two weeks ago. Wake Forest took their game home with ease, taking a 66-14 win over Campbell. The match was nearly completed by the end of the third, at which point Wake Forest had reached a 52-14 advantage. RB Christian Beal-Smith had a great game for the Demon Deacons as he rushed for three TDs and 130 yards on 20 carries.
The defense of Wake Forest was also in attendance, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The choice came from DB Traveon Redd and DB Zion Keith.
Meanwhile, the point spread was in Virginia ‘s favor last week, but luck not. They took a bruise of 38-21 from the NC State Wolfpack. A silver lining for Virginia was QB Lindell Stone’s game, who passed three TDs and 240 yards on 54 tries.
Wake Forest’s win put them at 1-2, while the Cavaliers’ loss pulled them back to an identical 1-2. A few numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Demon Deacons haven’t thrown an interception yet this season. But Virginia gets into the matchup after she stole the ball five times, good for fifth in the nation. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
