THE TAKE­AWAY

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - College Football -

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.
