ACC Football Week 11: Stoudt Performance
We had said previously that Wake Forest scoring in double-digits would be a huge victory for their offense against Clemson’s defense. Not only did they make ten on Thursday night in primetime, they got to twenty. That is worthy of note in and of itself.
The bad news is Wake Forest managed just 119 yards of offense, including only seven rushing yards for the whole game. Clemson’s Cole Stoudt threw three touchdown passes as the Tigers, stuck in a tie game early in the fourth quarter, made some big plays late to open up a 34-20 win. They certainly did not make it easy on themselves, but a win is a win.
With that victory, Clemson is now 7-2, victors in six games in a row — they have not lost since their Florida State debacle in September. As for Wake Forest, give them credit for playing a better overall game than most people expected, but unsurprisingly, there will be no bowl for the Demon Deacons this season. Their season will mercifully come to an end in three weeks.
