Deacs take care of business

Riding the arm of Riley Skinner and an unforgiving defense, Wake Forest finally got off to a fast start and put things beyond all doubt early on in the 35-7 victory over Elon.  After a strong running attack last week, the Deacs did most of their work through the air on Saturday.  Skinner threw for 289 yards and 3 scores, including two big passing touchdowns to Chris Givens and Marshall Williams for 54 and 80 yards, respectively.

Perhaps the biggest storyline of the day for Deacon fans was the return of Rodney Rogers to Wake Forest after his accident last year.  In an emotional pregame presentation, the players rallied around him at midfield after they entered BB&T stadium.

The most notable change for Wake Forest on Saturday was the debut of a new kicker.  Freshman Jimmy Newman has taken the field goal kicking job for the moment as Cline Beam will continue to handle kickoffs and Shane Popham will punt.  Newman did not get the opportunity to put three on the board this week, but easily connected on the five extra points.  It will be interesting to see how he does next week in his first true test under pressure at Boston College.
