WAKE FOREST - The Demon Deacons made light work of in-state foe Elon on Saturday, routing the Phoenix in Winston-Salem, 35-7. The Demon Deacons have now outscored Elon 299-19 in 10 all-time meetings. It was a career-performance for Wake signal-caller Riley Skinner, who threw for 289 yards (career-high) and three TDs. The victory marked the 100th at BB&T Field since the facility opened in 1968. It also improved head coach Jim Grobe to 56-45 in nine years at Wake Forest. He is the first coach to be 11 games over .500 since Peahead Walker retired in 1950.
