The ACC is who we thought it was.

The 2014-2015 AP Preseason College Basketball Poll has been released and this year's Wake Forest team will be going against a lot of them.

The Deacs will play the following teams:

  • #4 Duke Blue Devils (Home and Away)
  • #6 North Carolina Tar Heels (Home)
  • #7 Florida Gators (Semi-Away)
  • #8 Louisville Cardinals (Home)
  • #9 Virginia Cavaliers (Home and Away)
  • #23 Syracuse Orange (Away)

That means the Wake Forest Demon Deacons will play preseason top 25 teams 8 times this season, including 7 games against top 10 teams. With next year's recruiting class coming in, hopefully the Deacs will make the preseason top 25 in 2015-2016.
