Go Deacs!

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

The day is finally here. Wake Forest football fans have waited five long years, but the Wake Forest football program is playing in a bowl game. The Demon Deacons will take on a very good Temple Owls team, who went 10-3 and won the AAC.

Initially Temple had the distractions in this bowl game by losing head coach Matt Rhule to Baylor. However, that all took a wild spin when it was discovered that Wake Forest's former radio announcer, Tommy Elrod, was sending proprietary game plan information to opponents over the past three seasons.

I believe that this Wake team will show a great deal of resiliency. They've had a history of doing that under Coach Clawson, and I absolutely see that trend continuing in this bowl game. They are going to use #WakeyLeaks as motivation, and become even closer as a team. I hope to see the Deacs use some trick plays to throw Temple off balance and gain some chunk yardage. Win or lose it's been a nice season, but here's to sending out 2016 in style!

As always, go Deacs!
