Notre Dame 24, Wake Forest 17 -- 15:00, 4Q

 

The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame make their first ever appearance in Winston-Salem to take on the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest.

While Notre Dame's season hasn't gone as expected, Wake Forest is off to a surprising 5-3 start, after finishing a miserable 3-9 last season.

Wake Forest is led by head coach Jim Grobe, who is in his 11th season at the helm.

Grobe's squad is coming off an embarrassing 49-24 loss to North Carolina, while the Fighting Irish are hoping to start a new hot streak after dominating Navy by a score of 56-14.

With a manageable schedule down the stretch, Wake Forest could be primed to make a run at the ACC Atlantic Division title. A win over Notre Dame would be a great catalyst for such a feat.

The first-ever meeting of these two schools should shape up to be a highly entertaining contest.
