Wake Forest will wrap up it’s regular season at home against the Duke Blue Devils on November 25th at 12:30 on RSN/Fox Sports South, as announced by the ACC today.

Duke currently sits at 4-6 and is on a six game losing streak after starting the season 4-0. It hosts Georgia Tech on Saturday, November 18th, and will need to defeat the Yellow Jackets to have a shot at a bowl game when it comes to Winston-Salem.

The best case scenario would be for the Blue Devils to lose to Tech on Saturday to effectively end their bowl hopes before making the trip west on I-40.

Wake Forest also started the year at 4-0, but has already secured bowl eligibility with a 64-43 win over Syracuse on Saturday to push it’s record to 6-4. The Deacs will host in-state rival N.C. State this coming Saturday at 7:30 on ESPNU.

The Demon Deacons and Blue Devils have had an odd series over the past few seasons, with Wake Forest winning 12 in a row from 2000-2011, before losing four in a row from 2012-1015. The Deacs got back on track with a 24-14 upset win in Durham last season behind a huge game from Cade Carney.

Overall Duke holds a 57-38-2 series lead over Wake Forest. If the line were to be set today, the Deacs would likely open up around a 10 point favorite.
