Deacon Dump: Short Week vs Clemson

Wake Forest (4-3) returns to BB&T Field tomorrow night against No. 14 Clemson (6-1) on ESPN. It will certainly be an uphill battle against the uber-talented Tigers offense who boasts playmakers Tajh Boyd, DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Andre Ellington. But the Wake defense has been stout in its past two games, albeit against Maryland and Virginia. The Deacs are eager for revenge after Clemson stole their bid in the ACC Championship Game last season in the regular season finale in Death Valley. Wake Forest led 28-14 in the fourth quarter and missed two key FG's late in route to a devastating 31-28 loss. Good news for the Deacs-- there is a chance Michael Campanaro will make his awaited return. Having the dynamic receiver will add a needed playmaker to a stagnant offense that compiled only 213 yards in a win against Virginia. Expect a raucous environment in Winston-Salem. The Screamin' Demons will be in full force
