It's the final game of the 2022-23 season, and the Deacs have a chance to go into the JMA Wireless Dome (it will always be the Carrier Dome as far as I’m concerned) and win their first ever game against Syracuse on the road. Wake is coming off a pretty bad loss at home to Boston College, while the Orange have lost 4 straight by 17 or more points. It’s gotten so bad for Syracuse that in their last game against Georgia Tech, the Orange had to abandon the zone because they were getting beat down so badly. A win can get Wake as high as 7th place with a bunch of help from like 4 other teams, but a loss puts them at 9.

Go Deacs!
