The Wake Forest Demon Deacons host the North Carolina Tar Heels tonight (Friday). Although both teams are in the Atlantic Coast Conference, this game doesn’t count for conference record.

UNC comes in better than anticipated, led by Coach Mack Brown and freshman quarterback Sam Howell. Already tying the number of wins from last season, the Tar Heels hope to ride their strong momentum from an impressive win over the Miami Hurricanes.

Wake Forest hopes to ride their hot offense and QB Jamie Newman to another victory. The defense will miss DL Tyler Williams while the offense will be without WR Kendall Hinton, however, regardless of who plays, rivalries bring the best out of competitive teams.

Don’t forget to go in ALL BLACK, and as always....
