WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- This is not the Riley Skinner ACC fans are used to seeing. He threw seven interceptions total last year (and only five in 2006), and he's thrown two already in three quarters against Baylor. His last pick led to the Bears' 37-yard touchdown by Kendall Wright.
This was supposed to be the year that Wake's offense helped take some pressure off an inexperienced defense, but in this game, the defense isn't getting much help. Skinner could use some help himself from a young group of receivers who have struggled to get open.
