WINSTON-SALEM--Wake Forest and it's lifeless rushing attack managed only 15 net yards as the Deacons fell to the ULM Warhawks, 21-19. Orville Reynolds was the lone offensive spark for the Deacons, catching a 65-yard touchdown pass from Tanner Price in the first quarter. Michael Campanaro finished with 177 yards on 16 catches, but dropped a two-point conversion that would have tied the game with seconds remaining.
The Deacons were their own worst enemy, notably Justin Jackson committing two major penalties at critical junctures. ULM quarterback Kolton Browning finished the game 43-68 for 315 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Deacons seemingly could not get the defense off the field, a combination of missed tackles and too many third down conversions. Once again, the offense did not do the defense any favors- at times looking like a horse and carriage stuck in the mud.
"We're a very lethargic offensive football team right now," head coach Jim Grobe said. "We have no sense of urgency. This is my fault. This is nobody's fault but the head coach, when your offense plays like they're asleep at the wheel."
