Wolford marshals Wake Forest troops
Wake Forest attached a positive ending to a season marred by a spying scandal, using a gutsy performance by quarterback John Wolford to beat heavily favored Temple 34-26 in Tuesday’s Military Bowl.
After throwing an interception on the opening series — a turnover Temple turned into a 7-0 lead — Wolford helped the Demon Deacons rattle off 31 straight points before halftime.
Wolford left with a neck strain in the third quarter with the score 31-17. Wake Forest (7-6) then withstood a comeback bid by Temple (10-4) to secure its first winning season since 2008.
