10/17 Deacon Dump: Wake Forest vs. Virginia notes

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

After a timely bye week, the 3-3 Deacs return to the field against Virginia. Their bowl hopes growing dimmer by the day, Wake Forest needs to win in Charlottesville to keep the hope alive. After going 8-5 last season, expectations were high, but the 2-5 Hoos have completely imploded, needing a miracle to enter the bowl picture. And frankly, a Penn State field goal away from 1-6. They have a quarterback controversy and their defense has been porous.
