    And itís worth looking at the past two seasons, when Wake Forest lost 38-24 at Georgia Tech in 2017 and 38-17 at Florida State last season. Neither of those teams finished their seasons with a bowl appearance. ďSome of those losses, we just flat out didnít play well,Ē Clawson said.

    Clawson's adjustments to poor third down play on defense and to injuries seem to be working. We will know more about adjustments to off week preparation Saturday night.

    Deacs have a few opportunities against Louisville at 7:30 p. m. on Saturday, 10.12.19:
    (1) 8 game win streak for first time in history,
    (2) Win after a bye week for first time under Clawson & Co.,
    (3) Start 6 and 0 in a season for first time since 1944 when Deacs started 7 - 0,
    (4) Continue reminding cheaters not to cheat,
    (5) Go into the FSU game undefeated which will bring out every "Walmart" fan within a 50 mile radius and WF will need at least 1/3 of them,
    (6) Continue winning winnable games, an important achievement for the youth on this team,
    (7) Prove they belong in the Top 20,
    (8) BOWL Eligible.

    We didn't go 6-0 in 2006.

    As a long-time Wake fan who has experienced many more lows than highs from our football program, I'd add #8: bowl eligible, baby..anything else the rest of the way is gravy!

    According to the 1945 Howler, The Deacon Football Team defeated UNC 7 - 0; Georgia 14 - 7; Maryland 39 - 0; VMI 38 - 7; NC State 21 - 7; Miami 27 - 0; and, Clemson 13 - 7, before losing to Duke 0 - 34. They played one more game against South Carolina, which they won 19 - 13, after losing that one game to Duke.

    is this a trick question? By beating Louisville, we stay undefeated. One of less than 15 Power conference programs still undefeated. Thus, top 20.

    Opponent, Louisville, is a historically good program and have so far had a good - top 50 - year. In other words, it wouldn't be a victory over a St. Francis.

    im sorry...i dont see how beating an unranked 3-2 squad justifies anything we dont know about this team already..its a game we should win, and will likely move up as a result of a win...but still an OK team to start with. justifying a top 15 rank would be beating clemson...or at least keeping it closer than last year. our best win this year is fuckin unc lol.

    You can only play the teams on your schedule. By your theory we can only prove we are a top 15-20 team in a one off game on the road against a top 3 team in the nation who is the defending champion? Oookay

    And our best win is probably Utah State still although USU, UNC, and BC are all roughly equivalent since BC was on the road.
