    Revenge game. Do it for Brian Piccolo.

    1964. Wake goes 5-5. Piccolo was ACC player of the year and a 1000 yard rusher. Memphis beat Wake Forest 23 to 14. Payback time. This game is huge.

    Interesting history.
    I bet the press and announcers pick up on this.

    We also played Memphis in 1965, 1966, and 1967. The all-time series is tied 2-2.

    I would rather avenge the heartbreaking sweet 16 loss to Memphis in the NCAA tournament in the 80's. Tacy inexplicably slowed the tempo down while we were up about 10 points. Epic loss of momentum.

    I was there. The entire Memphis team sported Jheri Curls:

    I was at that game too. The Memphis State dance team was something to behold.

    Yeah - WF lost that 1982 game, but as of 1986, Memphis did not officially win it

    Sad!

    IIRC, Pic was the leading rusher and leading scorer for the nation that year.
