Wake Forest: The Demon Deacons earned bowl eligibility for the third consecutive season. It is only the second time in program history that Wake Forest qualified for a bowl game in three successive years. Former coach Jim Grobe guided the program to bowl games from 2006-08.
“We want to become a program that, even in our down years, we find a way to get to six or seven (wins) and get to a bowl,” Clawson said. “We want going to bowls to be the expectation of our program.”
Duke: The Blue Devils’ struggles against the Deacs in Durham continued. Duke entered Saturday’s contest having won five of its last six games against Wake Forest, but it has dropped eight of the last nine between the schools at Wallace Wade Stadium.
ONE TO REMEMBER, ONE TO FORGET
For Wake Forest, the 59-7 result was the largest margin of victory over an ACC opponent in program history. For Duke, the defeat was the program’s most lopsided in coach David Cutcliffe’s 11 seasons in charge.
Both teams await the announcement of their respective bowl destinations on Dec. 2.
