No. 19 Wake tries to stay unbeaten, visits Syracuse – Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky

Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky 2021-10-05 19:05:07 –

Two teams who are familiar with the importance of field goals gathered on Saturday, No. 19 Wake Forest will face host Syracuse in an Atlantic Coast Conference match.

Wake Forest (5-0, 3-0 ACC) is trying to build one of the best starts in the history of the program.

“If we have a special season, we’ll find a way to gain market share,” said Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson.

Demon Deacons made the only close call of the season last week when Nick Shiva’s last-minute field goal visited Louisville to win 37-34.

A few hours later, in a 33-30 decision in Tallahassee, Florida, Syracuse (3-2, 0-1) scored a field goal in the second half when host Florida caught up with the tie in the final round of the game. I experienced the other end.

“We’re together,” said Orange coach Dino Babers. “We will have another opportunity. I think we are doing some good things.”

This is the third consecutive year that Demon Deacon has visited Syracuse, lost overtime at Carrier Dome 39-30 in 2019, and won 38-14 last year.

“Basically, the number one team at ACC is coming to our house,” said Chris Elmore, a fullback from Syracuse. “Wake Forest, they are not pushovers.”

Demon Deacon, who holds the highest national ranking in the ACC team, is 3-0 in conference play for the first time in 10 years.

Shiva scored three field goals in a Louisville match, pushing his total career to 67 out of 74 with the highest percentage in NCAA history (.905).

Andre Schmid, a 6-8 Syracuse kicker in this season’s field goal, is also highly qualified. He won the 2018 Lugroza Award as a freshman when he led the NCAA with 30 field goals, achieving 62 out of 73 attempts (84.9 percent) in his career.

Significant contributions continue to come from the entire Wake Forest roster. Safety Travelon Red was ACC Defensive Back of the Week after 11 tackles in a Louisville match and forced a fumble. Meanwhile, Justice Ellison was the ACC Rookie of the Week with the team’s best 67 rushyards. Ellison has recorded touchdowns in each of the last three games.

“He’s very reliable and reliable,” Clawson said.

Christian Beer Smith’s running back has been “nicked up,” so that’s a good thing, Clawson said.

Wake Forest’s quarterback Sam Hartmann surpassed the 300-yard mark for the first time this season in a Louisville match.

Quarterback Garrett Schroeder broke the Syracuse record by rushing three quarterback touchdowns against Florida State University. It was my second start at Orange, a Mississippi transfer.

“We need to score in the red zone,” Schroeder said. “We need to record more touchdowns …. We felt more confident in the attack. We will be able to play.”

Syracuse has been slightly modified after Taj Harris, the team’s top receiver in four games, entered the transfer portal. He didn’t play at Florida State University. At least Orange regained Elmore after missing the first four games.

The winning team has scored at least 38 points in four consecutive meetings, starting with Wake Forest’s 64-43 Roadwin in 2017.
