The Wake Forest Demon Deacons achieved history, getting to 8-0 while beating their instate rival Duke Blue Devils. This week’s challenge is tougher, with a trip to Chapel Hill to face the North Carolina Tar Heels. UNC has had a disappointing season after coming in with a top-10 preseason ranking. Despite the .500 record, the Heels have a lot of talent and can’t be taken lightly. Look for the Deacs to try and use their improved defense to slow down Howell and company.
