The Bowl Game for the Deacs is finally here. With the news that WR Greg Dortch being out somewhat dampening the mood for Demon Deacon fans, Wake Forest will have to lean even more on their running game and QB Jamie Newman spreading the ball around.

Look for healthy doses of RBs Cade Carney and Matt Colburn while leaning on the Beef Boys lead by Ryan Anderson and others.

Defensively, look for S Cam Glenn to be all over the field today to try and help slow down the rushing attack led by Tony Pollard with Darrell Henderson out.
