101 Days of BC Football: Ranking 2012 Schedule By Difficulty, 12-7

5 of 6

Eighth place instead went to Wake Forest, a team that came up to Chestnut Hill last year and beat a very flat BC team in their own stadium. This time, the game is down in North Carolina and the Deacs might be a touch better than last season, so if the game were scheduled for this week, they would probably be slightly favored.

Quarterback Tanner Price took a nice leap forward in his sophomore season as Wake snuck into a bowl game. They were a decent home team last season, with their signature wins being Florida State and NC State. Wake isn’t much better than an average team these days but it might be tough to knock them off in their building.
