WHAT’S AT STAKE?
Wake Forest is stepping out of Atlantic Coast Conference play. Dave Clawson's Demon Deacons are coming off a win at Florida State that allowed them to jump up the AP Top 25 poll in what is shaping up to be another strong season. Army, meanwhile, has lost all three games against Bowl Subdivision opponents and is off to its worst start since 2015.
Wake Forest's defense vs. Army's offense. Simply put, the Demon Deacons are determined not to have a repeat of last year's troubles against the Black Knights' triple-option attack. Army racked up 416 yards in a shootout before Wake Forest won 70-56 thanks to its own program-record output for the modern era.
