WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Wake Forest heads across the country this Saturday for the first road game of the year against the Stanford Cardinal at Stanford Stadium. The game is set to kickoff at 11:15 p.m. ET and will be televised by ESPN2. The game is also available on the Wake Forest ISP Sports Radio Network.
The Demon Deacons are coming off a pair of record-setting games to open the season. Wake defeated Presbyterian 53-13 on Sept. 2, and then outlasted Duke 54-48 last Saturday. It's the first time in school history that the Demon Deacons scored more than 50 points in consecutive games. The 102 combined points between Wake Forest and Duke was the second-highest scoring game in ACC history.
After gaining more than 400 yards on the ground against Presbyterian, the Deacs used more of a balanced attack against Duke. Wake totaled 229 yards on the ground and 271 through the air.
Freshman quarterback Tanner Price completed 12-of-19 passes for 190 yards and the first three touchdowns of his career. He also ran for 56 yards and a touchdown. Wide receiver Marshall Williams caught two touchdown passes from Price and he also threw an 81-yard TD pass of his own to Chris Givens.
Stanford also comes into the game on a high, winning its first two contests by a combined 70 points, including a 35-0 shutout of Pac-10 rival UCLA last week.
