Wake Forest Quick Predictions

Your mascot is just a dude.
Syracuse started off the season with a huge win in terms of the score against URI. But now the actual FCS teams start, and a conference game no less. Wake Forest heads into the Dome trying to prove last year was a fluke and that they aren't really as bad as you think they are.
The matchup is pretty simple actually. If Syracuse does two things they will win. Don't turn the ball over. With a freshman QB making his first start it might be a tall order. Although thrown in last week after Hunt unexpectedly went down, he seemed fairly calm and collected in the game, throwing for a couple TDs and no INTs. That's good. Not giving away the ball is the first step. The second is stopping the run for Wake. They average very few yards per carry. If Syracuse can continue that, it puts a lot of pressure on QB John Wolford. While talented, he can't win the game alone. Wake Forest isn't really that good, so if Syracuse stays in their lane, and takes care of what they should be able to do against Wake, they should win. If they go out there and Eric Dungey throws the ball to Wake several times, Syracuse will have a tough day. But I look for the Syracuse rushing attack to dominate anyway. Just like last year at Wake, Syracuse ran all over the field. Syracuse should do the same this time. I like the Orange in this one 30 to 17.

This game is available regionally at 12:30pm, via the following stations here. For those not blacked out due to the game being on TV, the game will be available on WatchESPN. For everyone, you can also watch on the ACC website here. John is in the Dome. I'm in the home office for at least the 2nd quarter until the end. An Orange Out is in effect for the game and they are honoring Coach Mac during this one so a lot of great things going on. Syracuse has a lot of reasons to show up and try and smack Wake in the mouth. Students get in free as well. Giddy up. It should be a great Saturday.
