Wake Forest improved to 3-0 last week with a win over Delaware, The Demon Deacons have won, but haven’t been overly impressive, going just 1-2 against the spread. Wake is winning with defense right now, holding opponents to 12.7 points and 247.7 yards per game. On offense, the Deacons are putting up just 23 points and 348.3 yards per game. John Wolford has taken over at QB for the injured Kendall Hinton. Wolford has gone just 25 of 46 passing for 251 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Running back Cade Carney is also out with a knee injury. He has three rushing touchdowns.
Wake Forest appears to be battling a few too many key injuries on offense to contend with this Indiana team. The Hoosiers aren’t a great defensive team, but should be able to keep the Deacons in check frequently enough for their offense. Indiana has faced good defenses over the past few seasons and still been able to move the ball consistently. That shouldn’t change against Wake Forest.
