WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest will welcome in-state rival and Football Championship Subdivision foe Gardner-Webb to BB&T Field on Saturday evening. The Demon Deacons and the Runnin' Bulldogs are set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN3.com and can also be heard on the Wake Forest Sports Network from IMG College.

The Deacons (1-1) are looking to build momentum after posting a 34-27 win over NC State in their ACC opener last weekend at BB&T Field. Wake Forest built a 21-point lead late in the third quarter, but the Deacons had to stave off a late Wolfpack rally to hold on for the win.

Wake Forest's offense had a big day in the win, racking up 438 yards of total offense. Quarterback Tanner Price completed 22 of 35 passes for 297 yards and a touchdown.

Wide receiver Danny Dembry finished with six catches for 96 yards and a touchdown. Dembry also had a 10-yard touchdown run for his first career rushing score.

Fellow receiver Chris Givens caught six balls for 111 yards, while Michael Campanaro caught a touchdown pass and threw for another.

Tailback Josh Harris rushed 23 times for 96 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Strong safety Cyhl Quarles led the Deacon defense with 12 tackles, while free safety Josh Bush recorded the team's first interception of the season when he picked off Mike Glennon in the third quarter.

Quickie Notes
- Wake Forest is 11-3-1 all-time at home against teams currently in the Big South Conference. The Deacons have not lost at home to a current Big South team since 1930.
- Saturday's game will be the 31st meeting for Wake Forest against a team from the Football Championship Subdivision. The Deacs are 25-5 all-time against FCS teams with all five losses coming at the hands of Appalachian State.
