We have reached week four of the college football season which means there are a lot of non conference showdowns this weekend. In this game it’s a big showdown when the the Notre Dame Fighting Irish make the trip to BB&T Field to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
Both teams have high hopes for this season and this is a big game for both teams.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish come into this game with a 3-0 record but besides their win over Michigan they really haven’t looked that impressive.
They failed to cover the spread against Ball State and Vanderbilt. Ball State just got blown out in their last game by Indiana which makes their performance that much more of a concern.
The biggest issue the Fighting Irish have had has been the play of Senior quarterback Brandon Wimbush who has only thrown one touchdown and four interceptions. He also has a very low completion percentage of just over 55 percent.
The rushing attack also hasn’t looked that impressive so put those two things together and it has led to an offense that has struggled.
In this game the offense needs to find a way to get going early. Wimbush is going to need to pass the ball through the air with some success.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
On the other side of this matchup is the Wake Forest Demon Deacons who won their first two games but had a disappointing loss in their last game against the Boston College Eagles.
They actually played well most of the game but the second half they couldn’t make the winning plays and that led to a defeat.
The Demon Deacons are led by freshman quarterback Sam Hartman who has looked decent this season but at times he has also shown that he is just a freshman.
He has thrown six touchdowns and five interceptions and in this game he needs to do a much better job of taking care of the ball.
To win this game the defense needs to create turnovers and the offense can’t turn the ball over. If they can do that the upset could be coming their way.
