All the big name media sites are getting their season and bowl projections out this week ahead of the first real week of season football. Sports Illustrated is without a doubt one of the bigger names in sports journalism and it issued its own projections today.

SI projects 11 ACC teams and Notre Dame headed to bowl games this year and that includes our Wake Forest Demon Deacons. According to the experts over there, Wake Forest is projected to head to the Independence Bowl on Wednesday, December 27th at 1:30 PM against the SEC’s Texas A&M Aggies.

Given the insane amount of talent in the ACC (and quite frankly the Atlantic Division alone with Florida State, Louisville, Clemson, and N.C. State), winning 6 games is a tall task, but there are some media outlets who believe Wake Forest has the horses to get there this year.

Playing Texas A&M in a bowl game would be fun for everybody on the Wake Forest side of things even if it meant going to Shreveport, Louisiana. While it’s obviously extremely early, it’s fun to speculate on what Wake could do this year!
