Wake Forest Demon Deacons Game Notes
Wake Forest redshirt junior WR Jaquarii Roberson caught nine passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in a 45-21 loss to Louisville on Saturday. Roberson (6'1/182) snatched a 37-yard touchdown from Sam Hartman with 13:24 left in the fourth quarter, which pulled the Demon Deacons to within 28-21. Unfortunately, that's as close as Wake Forest would get for the remainder of the game as the Deac's front-seven struggled to contain the run.
Wisconsin Badgers Game Notes
Wisconsin wide receivers Danny Davis and Kendric Pryor remain limited in practice as the Badgers prepare for Wednesday's matchup with Wake Forest. While Davis (6'0/194) has not appeared in a game since November 14, Pryor (5'11/185) has been sidelined since December 5. Should both remain out, expect a lot of action for TE Jake Ferguson and RB Garrett Groshek in the passing game.
