Wake Forest Game Notes
Wake Forest head out on the road for the second time this season when it heads to College Park, Md., this weekend for an ACC Atlantic Division showdown with Maryland.
The Demon Deacons have won four out of the last six meetings over Maryland, including a 31-10 victory last season at BB&T Field.
Maryland has held the upper hand recently in College Park, knocking off a ranked Wake Forest team 26-0 in 2008 and rolling to a 62-14 victory in 2010.
The Deacons' last win at Maryland came during their 2006 ACC Championship season when a 38-24 victory clinched the Atlantic Division title.
The Deacs are 1-2 in conference play this season while Maryland will be playing its first ACC game on Saturday.
Wake Forest is coming off a tough setback at home against Duke last Saturday, 34-27.
In the game, Wake Forest lost the ACC's top receiver Michael Campanaro to a hand injury in the first quarter.
In Campanaro's absence, senior Terence Davis caught a career-high six passes for a career-high 100 yards.
Fullback Tommy Bohanon also had a career day receiving, finishing with a pair of touchdown grabs and a career-high 41 yards receiving.
Quarterback Tanner Price was 19-of-38 for 230 yards and two scores but he also threw two interceptions.
Defensively, juniors Mike Olson and Justin Jackson each had career-highs in tackles.
Olson recorded a game-high 13 stops, including one tackle for loss while Jackson posted 12 tackles and his team-leading third sack.
