Betting line

  • Vegas: Virginia -4
  • ESPN FPI: Virginie 70.3% chance of winning


Virginia allowed 699 yards and 59 points in the loss to North Carolina in Week 3. Wake will attack UVA D the same way you saw with UNC – crossing the A and B gaps, overriding play. The Deacs will score points. Can Virginie follow? The secondary fort Wake is the key here. The defensive numbers look good, but it’s against ODU, Norfolk State and Florida State. The first team to make a mistake is falling behind, making it difficult to follow up. Last year that team was Virginia. I think it will be this year again. Final: Wake Forest 42, UVA 38.


It’s embarassing

We’re no better than Wake or Duke.

Surprise: the big game puts Wake on the board first

Ugh. Here we go again.

Wake attacked the A gap and B gap to the left guard on his four points for 16 yards. Much like Carolina attacked the A spreads and B spreads to the left guard last week.

UVA fails to convert after a first and a goal

Bronco goes for the fourth and goal of 5, on a series that started as a first and goal of 4. We’ll be dissecting the heck of it out of this one for a while.

The first down was a QB draw for a loss of two. The second try was a one-yard run by Mike Hollins. The third down was a flat pass to Jelani Woods that was incomplete, and even if it had been completed he would have been tackled towards the 5.

The fourth down was a cross from Dontayvion Wicks over the goal line that didn’t stand a chance.

Armstrong was 3 of 8 for 44 yards on the drive.

Without a doubt, should have taken the points.

The AVU D ultimately holds

Wake pulled him from the shadows of the end zone to UVA 29 before the drive stalled. Nick Sciba good from 46 on the shot on goal.

It’s 10-0 Deacs now, 2: 34 / 1st.

Staff D ultimately plugged the hole in left guard B’s space.
