WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Wake Forest will make its final road trip of the regular season when it heads to Clemson, S.C. to take on the Clemson Tigers this Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 12:00 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPNU and can also be heard on the Wake Forest Sports Network from IMG College.

The Demon Deacons (5-4, 4-2 ACC) have lost two games in a row for the first time all season after falling 24-17 to Notre Dame last Saturday.

The teams traded points on each of their first two possessions and remained tied until a Josh Harris touchdown ran gave Wake a 17-10 lead heading into halftime. The Notre Dame defense then stiffened in the second half and held the Deacs scoreless while the Irish offense scored a pair of touchdowns to provide the final margin.

The Deacons had a pair of 1st and goals in the fourth quarter but were unable to convert on either opportunity.

Defensively, senior Josh Bush recorded the first multi-interception game of his career as he picked-off a pair of Tommy Rees passes. He also set a new career-high with eight tackles in the game.

On the offensive side, sophomore Tanner Price was 17 of 24 for 187 yards and one touchdown. His TD strike was to senior running back Brandon Pendergrass, who hauled in his first career receiving touchdown. Pendergrass also ran the ball 17 times for a total of 50 yards.

Clemson (8-1, 5-1 ACC) is coming off its bye week. Prior to the off week, the Tigers dropped their only game of the season, a 31-17 loss at Georgia Tech on Oct. 29.

Quickie Notes
- The Demon Deacons are seeking their first win in Death Valley since 1998. Clemson has won each of the last five meetings at Memorial Stadium and has outscored Wake Forest 205-73 in those five games.
- Wake Forest junior wide receiver Chris Givens is 68 receiving yards away from tying Ricky Proehl's single-season record of 1,053 which he set during the 1989 season.
