New, 17 comments

The Deacs football schedule is officially out there!

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Boston College Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Wake Forest 2018-19 football schedule was released today at 2 PM by the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Out of conference the Deacs play: @ Tulane, Towson, Notre Dame, and Rice.

In the ACC Wake plays:

Home: Boston College, Clemson, Syracuse, and Pitt

Road: Florida State, Louisville, N.C. State, and Duke

Without further ado, here is the full schedule and when we play:

Some brief thoughts:

  • The Deacs start out with a very manageable slate, knocking out the entire non-conference schedule in the first five weeks of the year. At Tulane will be a tougher task than most people think, so a win at Yulman on Thursday night would be a good start to the year.
  • Bart lucked out since he decided to have his wedding on October 13th, and Wake Forest gets a bye there.
  • The ACC did absolutely no favors to Wake if it wants any shot at being a dark horse contender in the Atlantic. The Deacs get Clemson, BYE, @ Florida State, and @ Louisville in October. What a month.
  • Five straight home games after the away game at Tulane, including a Thursday night tilt against Boston College. The Deacs also travel to Raleigh on a Thursday night, which will be a tough atmosphere.
  • Wake will FINALLY play Pittsburgh in football, welcoming the Panthers to Winston-Salem on November 17th.
  • Overall the Deacs have a chance to get out to a 4-1 start before the gauntlet in the middle of the season.
