4-2, 5th in ACC - Atlantic

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Dave Clawson said he's not taking any moral victories from playing both FSU & Clemson close, but it was an indication that his OL has improved. "We matched up physically better than we ever had in the past. We moved the ball better than we had in the past. There were encouraging signs that at times it wasn't the physical mismatch up front that those games have been you can't walk away from those games saying we've closed the gap but we did hold up better with our line play."

QB John Wolford practiced this week and will play against Georgia Tech, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said.

Kendall Hinton to Scotty Washington for a 16-yard TD pass finally puts Wake Forest on the board. It's probably too little, too late for the Deacs, but it does mean they've still never been shut out under head coach Dave Clawson.

Kendall Hinton's mobility has made a big difference for Wake Forest in the first half, as Clemson's vaunted D-line was held without a sack and just one QB hurry.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Nine different receivers caught a pass in the first half for Clemson and the Tigers have more than doubled Wake's time of possession, but after a quick start, there's been little consistency on offense for either side. Tigers lead 14-0 at the half.

If you thought Clemson might come out sluggish off a big win with a noon kickoff, think again. The Tigers found the end zone on their first two drives and Kelly Bryant is 9-of-10 passing for 86 yards thus far.

John Wolford (12 TDs, 1 INT) is not starting for Wake Forest due to a shoulder injury. Kendall Hinton gets the nod, and Wake goes 3 & out on opening drive.
