We're back!  Saturday the Tigers were all over the place dominating the ball game against Wake Forest.  

We have been in a slump lately but the time clicked so beautifully in almost every play. They came out with such confidence and looked like a team ready to win.

Kyle Parker and Michael Palmer had some awesome connections including the first touchdown of the game.  Overall, the team was just on fire, and this momentum really reflected on the student section.

Even though the forecast called for a cold, sunny day, it rained of course, like every other game this season in Death Valley.  This did not stop the fans one bit.  From beginning until the end, the fans were just as pumped up as the team was.  

It was electric from Death Valley to downtown Central, where you could still hear the roar from the stadium.  

There was a little tiff between Coach Swinney and the refs at the beginning of the game.  Wake Forest had two No. 34s out on the field, which is illegal.  The footage of Coach Swinney chewing out the referee was replayed quite a bit on television yesterday, but it just shows how passionate he is for the game.

Sophomore Charles McGuirt reflected on the game, "Yesterday's day game was a big win for us, coming off the bye week and not playing so great in the first few games. Our defense did really well, and our offense got the job done and finally finished the game."  

This game should put the team in a great mindset going into the weekend, when they travel to Miami to face the Hurricanes on Saturday.
