Wake Forest vs. Army: Staff Predictions

Will Wake Forest become bowl eligible this week?

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Army Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

Adam: Wake Forest wins 24-14

Wake Forest's defense has been great against the run this year, and with an extra week to prepare for the triple option, the Deacs should be able to slow down the Army offense. Carney has another solid day on the ground and leads the Deacs to the victory and bowl eligibility.

Bart: Wake Forest wins 27-10

Our DEACS!!! are one win from bowl eligibility and to get there we simply need to do what we've done each of the last like four years: beat Army.

Will we do it? I think we will. How will we do it? By a score of 27-10.

Wolford leads us to the promise land. Long live Clawson.

Chris: Wake Forest wins 21-17

Wake gets back to winning ways off the bye week with a close win, 21-17. We struggle at first to stop the option offense, but come from behind and win on homecoming. Getting to bowl eligibility won't be the way the coaches sell this one, but you know it's on the players' minds.

Grumpy: Wake Forest wins 21-13

I think Clawson will have taken advantage of the bye week to have the team prepared for the triple option, and I think (even though the goal is to go 1-0) the fact that a win means bowl eligibility will have the team fired up and not complacent.

Ned: Wake Forest wins 24-14

Deacs are in firm control the whole game, but can't pull away big due to Army's run-heavy offense eating up a majority of the clock. Cortez Lewis continues to stay hot and Cade Carney puts in another solid performance tallying two scores as Wake takes this one 24-14.

Rob: Wake Forest wins 27-14

I'm rolling with our Deacs to win 27-14. Army's option offense has been very effective this year, but Wake's defense has been excellent against the run. The rush defense should be even more formidable given that the threat of the pass is not that high. I'd like to see Kendall Hinton out there, but it appears that we're going to go with Wolford. Either way, I expect our offensive line to be able to provide enough push that the backs should be able to move the ball down the field. Additionally, Cortez Lewis has been performing much better lately and I wouldn't be shocked to see him holding the ball in the endzone on Saturday. Let's go 1-0 this week and punch that ticket to bowl eligibility.
