In Wake Forest's last four games versus ranked teams, the Deacs have been outscored 52-0 (at No. 5 Florida State last year), 42-13 (to No. 14 Clemson), 38-0 (at No. 3 Notre Dame), and 56-7 (Saturday at No. 3 Clemson). Average score: 47-5. Ouch.

In the offseason, Jim Grobe and Wake talked a lot about moving back toward the run a bit. But the run was an outright disaster on Saturday, and a potentially solid secondary got lit up repeatedly but big pass plays, especially on passing downs. This game was over quickly.
