We have reached week three of the college football season and this is a big time ACC showdown on Friday night. In this game the North Carolina Tar Heels make the trip to Winston-Salem to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2015 when the Tar Heels won 50-14.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels couldn’t have asked for a better start to their season. In each of the first two games of the season they were underdogs and each of the games they came away with victories.
In their last game against the Miami Hurricanes, they didn’t play lights out, but at the end of the game they were able to come away with a victory.
At quarterback, the Tar Heels are led by freshman Sam Howell who has been great this year throwing for 519 yards and four touchdowns. The most impressive part is he still hasn’t thrown an interception.
On the defensive side the Tar Heels have been good, but this is going to be a test and they are going to need to continue their strong play.
If they can find a way to win this game there is going to be quite the buzz around this team. This is a team who wins total at the beginning of the season was set at 3.5.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
On the other side of this matchup is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons who haven’t been tested like the Tar Heels but they come into this game with a 2-0 record.
In their last game they took on the Rice Owls and after a slow start to the game they really dominated winning the game 41-21.
At quarterback the Demon Deacons are led by Jamie Newman who comes into this game having thrown 713 yards, six touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
On the defensive side there are some real questions and it’s something that is going to need to be cleaned up really quickly.
