After a couple of tough opponents, it is time for the annual post-exam buy games, where the Deacs will take on some of the weaker opponents on the schedule in USC Upstate and VMI. Wake is a heavy favorite in this game, so they should not have any trouble taking down the Spartans. In fact, Wake should be able to win the next 4 games pretty easily, as the highest rated team they play in that span is Boston College at 115. After that, things will start getting a little bit harder as ACC play truly begins. Go Deacs!
