Wake Forest's offense is improving

The Demon Deacons averaged more than 100 yards per game higher in 2015 than they did the previous season, despite a 3-9 overall record.

Dave Clawson said Cam Serigne was one of the offseason standouts in the weight room. Serigne had largely served as a receiver his first two seasons at Wake Forest, but Clawson thinks he'll take a lot more reps as an in-line, blocking tight end this year.

ACC forecast: Clemson, FSU should rule

The ACC is again top-heavy, and Clemson and Florida State are legitimate CFP title contenders. But don't sleep on the Coastal division either, especially with Miami on the rise.

CFB schedules: Good, bad and say what?!?

From crazy road trips to pillow-soft starts to the season to games that leave you wondering how they ever got scheduled in the first place, a look through the 2016 schedule is eye-opening.

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

Wake Forest has two ACC wins since 2014, but don't be fooled thinking it's reflective of the defense. So the Demon Deacons will sorely miss starting DT Zeek Rodney, who is taking a leave of absence (personal reasons). In 2015, Wake was 33rd among Power 5 teams defending rushes between the guards and 32nd in defensive win probability added. The defense did this with an offense ranking 118th against FBS competition.
