Louisville Cardinals top Wake Forest Demon Deacons 20-10


It was an ugly game, the exact type of game that the Wake Forest Demon Deacons needed in order to win against Louisville on the road. Wake could simply not pull the trigger to take advantage of all the Cardinal mistakes. Eventually, Louisville pulled things together and scored a few points with their freshman quarterback and freshman running back to seal the victory 20-10. No offensive scores for Wake.
Freshman running back Brandon Radcliff was the star of the game for Louisville, running for 129 yards and two touchdowns behind that veteran offensive line.

Play of the Game

Wake still had its fingers on a 10-7 lead when Radcliff ran left and found enough holes to score a thirty yard touchdown run. The 14-10 score would later expand to 20-10. This play showed how hard the Wake Forest defense played. Other than a couple explosive plays, the Deacons were able to clamp down on the Louisville offense. The Wake offense just made too many mistakes of their own.

Were You There When…

Defensive lineman Tylor Harris came up the middle on a rush and flailed at freshman quarterback Reggie Bonnafon of Louisville. He caught the ball with his swipe, causing a fumble that trickled into the end zone. Harris then jumped on the ball for the defensive score. Wake went up 10-7 at that point.

Tylor Harris, DT

Not only did Harris make the play mentioned above, but he was a terror the whole game. Harris was responsible for all three fumble recoveries on the day for Wake Forest. His partner Zachary Allen played hard too, with ten tackles for the defensive end spot.

Final Thoughts
The Wake Forest defense is clearly meant to travel. They have done everything you could want a defense to do. There is still no production from the offensive side of the football. Until that comes around, it is hard to see Wake doing much of anything. Particularly when they go next week to Florida State Seminoles.
