Wake. 4-1 in ACC Play. 448. . 12-4 Record. . 2. . .

A road loss to Florida State is not as bad of a loss as it appeared and we don't believe that it will end up as a bad loss come the end of the season. The Demon Deacons loss didn't drop them from their No. 2 spot in the rankings this week, mainly because of their dominant, 20-plus point victory over Virginia.

Could you argue for Duke to be in this spot and Wake Forest at No. 3? Absolutely. No one would blame you, especially given their recent performances. If Wake wants to stay in this spot come next week, they must go 2-0 this week with wins over NC State and Louisville, assuming Duke takes care of their schedule.
