The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 0-5 against the Clemson Tigers since November of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. They will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at Truist Field to kick off their 2020 seasons. The Demon Deacons were on the positive side of .500 (8-5) last season and are hoping to kick off an even more successful year. Meanwhile, after a 13-1 record last year and an appearance in the CFP Championship, Clemson is coming in with an eye to spark another quality season.

A pair of last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Wake Forest was 15th best in the nation (top 12%) in yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 464 on average. Clemson displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they ranked second in the nation in overall offensive touchdowns, closing the season with 85 overall. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the game.
Wake Forest is expected to lose, and badly: the experts have them at a 33-point disadvantage. A win doesn’t seem in the cards, but we’ll see if they can at least keep Clemson from covering the spread.
