WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Riley Skinner threw for 218 yards and
a touchdown, and Wake Forest remained unbeaten with a 34-14 rout of
Division I-AA Liberty on Saturday.
Several Demon Deacons had career days. Sam Swank matched a
personal best with a 52-yard field goal, Harris had his first
two-TD game and Morton had 127 yards receiving and tied a career
high with six catches.
Now, Wake Forest -- the only remaining unbeaten in the ACC's
Atlantic Division and one of the most unlikely after they were a
preseason pick to finish last in the division -- will bring its
first five-game winning streak since 1992 into next week's home
game against nationally ranked Clemson.
Liberty (3-2) entered with the nation's top scoring defense in
I-AA, allowing 4.25 points per game.
But the Flames were no match for the Demon Deacons, who scored
on five of their six possessions in the first half, led 27-7 at
halftime with 305 total yards and finished with 438 yards of total
Swank added a 37-yard field goal in the second quarter.
The Flames are coached by former Wake Forest captain Danny
Rocco, who played defensive back for the Demon Deacons in the
