Wake Forest takes on Virginia tomorrow afternoon as the Deacs look for their first conference win. The Deacs come off of a bye week and host the Cavaliers tomorrow at 4pm at Truist Field.

Here’s how the staff thinks the outcome of the game will be:

Adam (2 correct-Clemson & Campbell; 1 incorrect-NC State):

Virginia 31-Wake Forest 24

Until I see some major improvements to Wakes defense against a power 5 opponent, I just don’t feel confident in picking the Deacs.

Cam (2 correct-Clemson & Campbell; 1 incorrect-NC State):

Wake Forest 34-Virginia 20

I don’t think they can keep up with the punter who likes beer.

Bart (2 correct-Clemson & Campbell; 1 incorrect-NC State)

Virginia 37-Wake Forest 30

Wake offense continues to be solid but the defense isn’t able to get stops when they need to and the Hoos make them pay.

Samurai (2 correct-Clemson & Campbell; 1 incorrect-NC State):

Wake Forest 24-Virginia 17

I dunno, I think we’ll ultimately get a win, so let’s say 24-17 Deacs. I’m basing this off approximately nothing, just literally a gut instinct guess.

Edward (2 correct-Clemson & Campbell; 1 incorrect-NC State):

Virginia 31-Wake Forest 30

I still need the Wake defense to show me more against a Power 5 opponent before I’m comfortable picking the Deacs to win an ACC game. The offense should keep on rolling, but if the defense can't get stops it won't matter. Here’s hoping the bye weeks have helped and the defense is more ready to go this week and proves me wrong.

How do you all think this game will turn out? Comment below.
