WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Good luck figuring this one out. Wake Forest's defense - the one tasked with replacing seven starters including some of the best players players to come through the program - did what it had to do in the fourth quarter and gave the offense another chance to score.

And even with Riley Skinner, the veteran quarterback, Wake couldn't do it, losing 24-21 to a much improved Baylor team. So far the ACC is 0-for-2 against BCS conferences this weekend. And just like NC State, Wake Forest had the opportunity to win it.
