We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem. The Presbyterian Blue Hose make the trip to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
This is the first meeting between the teams since 2013 when Wake Forest won by a final score of 31-7.
Presbyterian Blue Hose
The Presbyterian Blue Hose have never really been known as a football powerhouse and last year was no different. They finished with a 2-9 record and in 5th place in the Big South conference.
Most experts don’t think this year will be much different for the team. They have been picked to finish in 5th and last place in the Big South conference.
The biggest reason for the Blue Hose struggle has been because of their offense. Last year they averaged a little more then 30 minutes per game of possession but could only score 8.9 points per game.
It’s like they went back to the 1900’s and how they played the game of football with how bad they were at moving the ball.
The bright spot is they have a lot of the starters from last years team back on offense, but if they can’t score more points it really won’t matter.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons had a decent 2016 season finishing with a 7-6 record and 4th place in the ACC Atlantic, and they will look to build on that performance this year.
To improve though the offense is going to need to be better. Last year they were ranked 118th in total offense and a lot of those struggles had to do with the line.
They had trouble keep the quarterbacks upright and healthy and it led to a lot of of the struggles.
On the defensive side of the ball they were really good last year, but they lost a lot of talent and with a no offensive coordinator it wouldn’t be surprising to see a step back this year.
To win this game they just can’t over think it. They are the better team and as long as they come out strong with confidence and they will be just fine.
