The Wake Forest Demon Deacons travel to Romney Stadium to face the Utah State Aggies.
The Utah State Aggies knocked off the Idaho State Bengals 40-20 to earn their first win of the season. The Aggies led 20-6 after 30 minutes and cruised to the finish line although the boxscore says there wasn't all that much difference with both squads finishing with over 400 yards. The Aggies held Idaho State to 408 yards and forced four turnovers with a pick six while Jojo Natson returned a punt for 52 yards for six more. Offensively USU has to be concerned with Chuckie Keeton who was just 13-30 for 116 yards and an interception although he led the ground attack with 74 yards with Rashad Hall and Joe Hill adding 138 yards.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons upended the Gardner Webb Bulldogs 23-7 to grab their first win of 2014. The margin of victory was far less then what many had expected although it was through no fault of the defense who allowed a scant 131 yards and eleven first downs. The Demon Deacons totaled 377 yards but could not get anything going on the ground and were one dimensional with just their passing to lean on which wasn't a bad option. John Wofford completed 31-38 for 291 yards with three touchdowns with a pair of interceptions ruining an otherwise great performance for the Wake signal caller who spread the ball around to eight receivers.
I see Utah State struggling and I don't know whether it's Keeton or his supporting cast while Wake Forest looks like a team we won't know about from week to week. I don't have a good read on this game so I can't give away a couple of touchdowns...
