Rickenbach CFB Rotation #137 Saturday 8* Wake Forest Demon Deacons (-) @ Virginia Tech Hokies @ 3:30 ET - QB Jamie Newman returned for Wake Forest last week. He had missed the Florida State game with an injury. It is no coincidence that the game against the Seminoles ended up being the lowest scoring output (22) for the Demon Deacons this season. With Newman under center Wake Forest has averaged 40 points per game in his 7 games. That is the key edge here is that the Demon Deacons simply have too much offense for Virginia Tech to be able to keep up here. The Hokies beat the Hurricanes 42-35 earlier this season but they were outgained by over 200 yards in that game. It was a deceiving final score and they only gained 337 yards in that game! 42 points on 337 yards yes you can see just how deceiving that game was! The point is that the only other "big" games that Virginia Tech had on offense were against Rhode Island and Old Dominion. Note they only scored 31 points in regulation of their 6 OT win over UNC. So taking away the crazy Hurricanes game and games against an FCS school (RI) and a bad (1-8) Old Dominion team, let's look at what Virginia Tech has averaged in terms of points scored in regulation of their other 5 games...22.6 points per game. You can see why I am expecting the Hokies to be unable to keep up here. Demon Deacons in a road rout. 8* WAKE FOREST
