The Wake Forest Demon Deacons look to earn bowl eligibility early this season. Coming into their first ACC home game, the Deacs can win their sixth game in six tries. The Louisville Cardinals stand in their way as the Cardinals have impressed from week one, when they battled tough with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

A night game and under the lights, the Deacs will have extra shine as they will wear the shiny gold chrome helmets.

Look for the Deacs to keep riding their high-powered offense led by QB Jamie Newman as Wake Forest comes off the bye week.

As always, Go Deacs!
