Quarterback Sam Hartman was sensational, throwing for 3 touchdowns and rushing for another. Wake Forest’s defense also stood out as they forced Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec into 2 interceptions.
This is Wake Forest’s first appearance in the ACC Championship Game since 2006. The Demon Deacons defeated Georgia Tech in the title game that year, 9-6. Since then, either Clemson, Florida State or Virginia Tech has appeared in every single ACC title game.
With the win, Wake Forest moves to 10-2 on the season. This is the program’s second double digit win campaign in its history. This also comes just one day after coach Dave Clawson agreed to a longterm extension with the team.
Kickoff from Charlotte will be at 8 p.m. ET on Dec. 4.
