Towson is coming off a dominant victory, in which it took down Morgan State 36-10 in Week 1.
Wake Forest was also able to start out the 2018 college football season undefeated, even though it was in less convincing fashion. The Demon Deacons were victorious against Tulane, 23-17.
Towson, despite coming away with a dominant win over Morgan State, needed a bit of time to get going in Week 1. The Tigers only managed a field-goal in the first quarter and didn’t score their first touchdown until about midway through the second.
That proved not to be a problem against Morgan State, but a slow start could spell disaster against Wake Forest.
Against the Demon Deacons, Towson must protect the football. Quarterback Tom Flacco threw for two scores and 245 yards on 18-of-28 from the field in Week 1, but while he was able to get away with that pick and some errant tosses against Morgan State, Wake Forest will be a different challenge.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Speaking of taking care of the football, the same thing applies to Wake Forest but for a completely opposite reason.
Towson can’t afford to be sloppy because Wake Forest will take full advantage. Forced turnovers will create more scoring opportunities, and the Tigers aren’t built to come from behind.
But Wake Forest also needs to keep the rock safe, otherwise the Tigers will feel they belong in this game. They’ll be ready to pounce when they get the ball back, and the last thing you need from an inferior opponent is them getting so irrationally confident that they speak a close game into existence.
Last week, Wake Forest quarterback threw for two scores but he also tossed to picks. That’s bound to happen when you throw the ball 51 times, but turnovers becomes especially problematic when allow any opposing defense to drop back, knowing you really only have one offensive approach to account for.
