11:30 Both Hinton and Wolford warming up for Wake

The rivalry between these two schools cannot be ignored. The Wolfpack fans will travel the short commute to Winston-Salem and the stands will be divided. Wake Forest will try to defend their home field once again against NC State. They have done a great job with it thus far. They will be the underdog once again, but they should be used to it by now.

The Wolfpack will get their first ACC win of the season if they find a way to get turnovers. Wake has been completely undone by mistakes that have been magnified by the defense getting turnovers. Against Florida State, Wake Forest’s potential game tying drive was cut short by Kendall Hinton overthrowing Cam Serigne in the end zone for an interception. Also, the game winning score in the Indiana game, turned out to be a interception returned for a touchdown by the Indiana defense. NC State will also want to get more production out of their passing game. Jacoby Brissett is a solid quarterback, but has not had the yardage production. If they can improve that, coupled with his ability to play it safe and not commit unneeded turnovers, the Wolfpack could get a win on the road in Winston-Salem.

In order to win this game, Wake Forest will need to address their offensive struggles and establish a rhythm. Their main problem is that their offensive shows flashes of ability that quickly vanish into a string of three and outs. They cannot afford to let that happen and expect to win. They need more consistency from their quarterback and running game, both of which have limited the offense. Defensively, they must stop Matthew Dayes. Wake needs to limit him on early downs to set NC State up for third and long situations. Dayes is a force, but if the Demon Deacons hope to win, they need to stop him.

NC State has been a lot better offensively this season, but has struggled when going up against better competition. RB Matthew Dayes is their offensive impact player. He has 588 yards rushing already on the year and has an impressive 10 touchdown rushes including a long run for 77 yards. Dayes will have to go up against a solid Wake Forest linebacker group led by Senior Brandon Chubb.

One of the major reasons for Wake Forest’s struggles is the fact that they haven’t had stability at the quarterback position. John Wolford started the season as the starter, but due to injury has actually thrown less pass attempts than his true freshman backup Kendall Hinton. Wolford has 997 passing yards on the year, with six touchdowns and five interceptions, while Hinton has 705 yards through the air, two passing touchdowns and four interceptions. Hinton is however the Demon Deacons leading rusher on the year with 255 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns. Both quarterbacks have thrown too many interceptions and these turnovers have hurt the Deacons tremendously. They were very significant in the Syracuse, Indiana and Florida State losses.

NC State has a better record than the Deacons, but has struggled just as much in the ACC. The Wolfpack are 4-2 on the year, but both losses have come in the ACC. They started out with four non-conference wins over Troy, Eastern Kentucky, Old Dominion, and South Alabama. They never scored less than 35 points in those four games, but the ACC is a far greater challenge. In their first conference game against Louisville, the Wolfpack offense was shut down by the Cardinals defense and could only get in the end zone twice on their way to a 20-13 defeat. They followed that up with another conference loss, this time to Virginia Tech, a game that was lost when the Wolfpack gave up 21 points in the second quarter.

Wake Forest has had an up and down season to say the least. The Demon Deacons have yet to compile two consecutive wins this year. They beat Elon in their home opener, then proceeded to lose the next week to Syracuse 30-17. The next week after that, Wake traveled to West Point and beat the Army Black Knights on a last second field goal 17-14. Then Wake fell to Indiana and Florida State at home. Two weeks ago, Wake responded to those losses with a win over Boston College in a defensive battle 3-0 only to lose the next week at Chapel Hill 50-14. These results have led to Wake Forest holding a 3-4 record and a 1-3 record in the ACC, making them 5th in the Atlantic Division.
