Wake Forest defeated Missouri 27-17 in the Gasparilla Bowl on Friday night.

The Demon Deacons held a 14-3 lead before giving up a pair of touchdowns to the Tigers, including one in the third quarter. However, Wake Forest ended the game with 13 unanswered points to secure the win.

It was a record-breaking night for Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman. First, he passed Tajh Boyd’s ACC record for most touchdown passes in a career with 108. He finished the night with 3 TD passes, putting him at 110 for his career.

Hartman also became the all-time passing yards leader in Wake Forest history. He passed for 280 yards in this contest, nearly 100 more than he needed to take over sole possession of first place in program history.

The ACC is now 2-0 so far during bowl season. Louisville also won its bowl game, picking up a victory over Cincinnati in the Fenway Bowl earlier this month.

This was Wake Forest’s 7th consecutive bowl appearance and its 5th victory over that stretch. This is the longest stretch of bowl appearances in program history.

Wake Forest has now won 8+ games in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2007-08.
