Wake Forest looks to ride their momentum from their victory against NC State. On Wake’s Senior Day, the Deacs have a chance to go for a sixth victory and third straight year of bowl eligibility against the Pittsburgh Panthers.
The depth chart has started to trickle out and on the offensive side, it looks like a couple of minor changes are out including a co-starter designation between Scotty Washington and Sage Surratt. Matt Colburn II is listed as a starter despite being a little banged up.

- The "OR" has returned between Scotty Washington and Sage Surratt
- Mike Allen now backs up Boogie Basham
- Demetrius Kemp and Matt Colburn II listed starters (both banged up)
On the defensive side, DL Mike Allen continues to earn more playing time as the primary backup behind Boogie Basham. Demetrius Kemp is listed as a started even though he is banged up as well.
Tyler Williams has fallen off the 2-deep as he’s been hurt and while it’s been good, the CB rotation continues to turn as Keegan Good has fallen off in favor of Tyriq Hardimon.

Tyler Williams has fallen off the 2-deep at DE (injury). It's Boogie Basham and Mike Allen. Tyriq Hardimon is back ahead at CB behind Amari Henderson, replacing Keegan Good.
The NCAA has been more lax about players being able to transfer after completing their degrees. For the Deacs there are a couple of players that have the ability to graduation and perhaps play somewhere else OR come back in 2019. LB Nate Mays and QB/WR Kendall Hinton both fit in this category as the official release says “They will both graduate and will have the option to return in 2019”.
Two redshirt juniors will go through Wake Forest senior day ceremony Saturday morning, LB Nate Mays and QB/WR Kendall Hinton. "They will both graduate and will have the option to return in 2019," the game notes state. Sure this will lead to some speculation.— Les Johns (@Les_Johns) November 13, 2018
Let the speculation begin or perhaps there will be some clarity in the coming weeks.
