Clemson football: Observations during its two-overtime win at Wake Forest
Clemson football: Observations during its two-overtime win at Wake Forest History favours Clemson football against Wake Forest – unless the numbers are viewed as the Demon Deacons being way overdue.
Wake Woodland has lost 62 sequential games to groups positioned in the Related Press top 10. No. 5 Clemson will attempt to score its fourteenth successive series triumph Saturday against the No. 16 Evil spirit Ministers. The Tigers are 29-1 against Wake Woods while positioned in the AP Top 25, the misfortune coming in 1945.
The Evil presence Elders appear to have more expectation than expected. Their positioning makes it a matchup of top 25 groups interestingly beginning around 1950, when No. 16 Clemson beat No. 17 Wake Timberland, 13-12. Two years sooner, when No. 10 Clemson beat No. 19 Wake Timberland, 21-14, was the main other such event.
Clemson has won 42 of its past 44 games against teams in the Atlantic Division. But the Tigers don’t have to be told that Wake Forest is the defending division champion. The Deacons went 7-1 last season in league play. Clemson beat them but finished 6-2 and failed to win the ACC for the first time in seven years.

Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagaleleli has been great, finishing 14 of 22 passes (64%) for 192 yards with two scores, however he began 7-for-7 for 104 yards. While he has been worked on this season more than 2021, he hasn’t assembled areas of strength for two in any game this season, and accordingly, neither has the offense.

12:48 p.m. | Clemson football’s depleted secondary exploited by Wake Forest
Wake Forest surged back from a 14-0 deficit by taking advantage of Clemson’s shorthanded secondary.
On first down, Evil presence Elders quarterback Sam Hartman tested Clemson rookie cornerback Toriano Pride Jr., who was called for pass impedance, a 15-yard punishment that put the ball at Wake’s 40. Hartman then, at that point, passed for 9 yards to Ke’Shawn Williams, covered by R.J. Mickens.
Then on third-and-1 and Clemson with 11 players in the box, Hartman passed toward a wide-open A.T. Perry. Fred Davis II tackled Perry while he was in his route for another pass interference penalty but one that likely prevented a touchdown.
But only for a play.
Hartman then passed deep down the middle to Jahmal Banks for a 36-yard touchdown.

On Clemson’s first offensive play, it was no surprise that quarterback DJ Uiagalelei handed off to Will Shipley. Maybe only a little more surprising is that Shipley went 53 yards.
The run moved the ball from the Clemson 12 to the Wake Forest 35.
Two plays, later Clemson moved to the Demon Deacons’ 23 on a pass interference penalty against Wake Forest’s Gavin Holmes, who had an arm wrapped around Joseph Ngata at the goal line.
The Tigers traded out with a 12-yard score pass from Uiagaleleli to tight end Jake Briningstool.
