Thursday night action features two teams who are looking to turn their programs around as the Tulane Green Wave and Wake Forest Demon Deacons get set for battle.
Both teams have very little expectations heading into this season and will look to get off on the right foot as they both will try to exceed everything and make a postseason bowl.
Tulane Green Wave
After many seasons of disappointment filled with loss after loss, the Green Wave are going in a different direction this season.
Willie Fritz was hired in the offseason and will try to turn this Tulane program around.
Tulane will welcome in the run first offensive style that Fritz brings, which may not be the most exciting one, but will at least give the Green Wave some stability early.
For the past couple seasons this team didn’t have much of an identity. Now, they’ll have a style they can adapt to and try to make successful.
The Green Wave have a lot of battles to not only figure out, but will have to try to find some players to fit into the system.
Tanner Lee transferred to Nebraska after he realized his style didn’t fit into the run first system, which leaves Glen Cuiellette and Darius Bradwell, who both have zero experience, to battle it out.
The most important thing to watch here against the Demon Deacons will be the offensive line.
The line has been completely inconsistent over the past two seasons, but with the Green Wave running the ball a lot more this year, getting offensive line coach Alex Atkins’ crew all on the same page is vital.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Dave Clawson will be in his third year as head coach of the Demon Deacons and some production will have to be made this season.
Clawson has gone just 6-18 over his past two seasons at Wake Forest and enters the season with a huge decision to make at QB.
He has already made it clear he will not run a two QB system, but has yet to make a decision on who will start.
John Wolford and Kendall Hinton both got reps last year and threw a combined 16 interceptions as they never got the offense going.
Wake Forest will rely heavily on their defense here against Tulane, as they know what kind of style the Green Wave will be working with.
The defensive line will have 4 upperclassmen starting with Wendell Dunn and Duke Ejiofor leading the way. Look for the Demon Deacons to stack the box here and force Tulane to beat them by throwing.

Free Week 1 NCAA Football Prediction
Tulane’s offensive questions are going to cause a lot of issues here in Week 1.
They don’t have much to work with and with a questionable offensive line, can their run game get any sort of production against this impressive Demon Deacons defensive line?
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Wake Forest -17
Laying 17 points with Wake Forest isn’t the most ideal of situations, but here against Tulane they have value.
Their defensive line should shut down the run and force the Green Wave to have to throw, which won’t end well for them.
