Wake Forest is at a bowl game crossroad. With three games remaining, the Deacs are hopeful to get to the requisite six victories. The road won’t be easy, especially with the Deacs having to win two of the next three.

Oh, did I forget to mention that starting quarterback Sam Hartman is out for the season?

Wake Forest definitely has its work cut out for them with new starting QB Jamie Newman but look for Clawson to lean on the Beef Boyz up front while hoping for a strong effort from the defense.

Go Deacs!
