Wake Forest is giving fans the chance to name this street.


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - This fall, Wake Forest is giving fans the opportunity to name the unnamed street in front of Deacon Tower that leads from Deacon Blvd. to the parking lots.

The street is a main thoroughfare for our fans on game day and marks the beginning of our Deacon Walk. It's only fitting that fans be involved with the naming of the street.

Beginning on Aug. 29, Wake Forest will take street name submissions at WakeTheStreet.com. Submissions will be gathered until the Sunday after the Demon Deacons' home football game against ULM on September 14. The submissions will then be reviewed by our panel of experts and narrowed down to the top eight street names.

Wake Forest will announce the top eight names during the NC State home football game on Oct. 5. The top eight finalists will each receive two 2014 Wake Forest football season tickets. The names will then be put into a single-elimination bracket format to be voted on by our fans. Bracket seeding will be randomly selected. Fans will be able to vote once a day on their favorite street names from Oct. 5-18.

During the home football game against Maryland on Oct. 19, we will announce the final four names left in the contest. Fans will be able to vote once a day on their favorite two street names in the top four between Oct. 19 and Nov. 8.

Starting Nov. 9 during the home football game against Florida State, we will announce the top two street names of the contest. Fans will be able to vote once a day on their favorite street name between November 9-22.

On November 23, prior to the home football game against Duke, we will unveil the winning street sign on site with our winner. We will present the winner with a replica street sign, a certificate for two Wake Forest football season tickets for the next 10 years and a check for $1,000. During the football game, we will announce the winning street name and recognize the winner on the field.
