What Tech fans need to know about Wake Forest

Record: 4-5, 2-3

TV/radio: ABC/106.7FM, 790AM

Last time played: Defeated Georgia Tech 9-6 in ACC championship game in 2006.

Last week: Wake Forest lost to Miami, 28-27.

Wake Forest on offense: Riley Skinner is one of the most prolific quarterbacks in school history, and is already the winningest with 30 victories. Only FSU's Christian Ponder and Duke's Thaddeus Lewis have thrown for more yards than Skinner (2,298) in the ACC this season. However, Skinner sustained a mild concussion in last week's loss to Miami. It hasn't been decided if he will play this weekend as the Deacons try to win two more games to become bowl eligible. The Deacons don't do much in the way of running the ball with one player. In fact, their leading rusher, Josh Adams, has just 428 yards. But as a team they have rushed for exactly 1,200 yards. They also have two receivers, Marshall Williams and Devon Brown, who have topped 500 yards and a third, Chris Givens, with more than 400.

Wake Forest on defense: The Deacons give up 141.7 rushing yards and 218.6 passing yards per game. But, in a situation Tech fans have grown familiar with, when the offense is on the field as much as Wake's  the defense only needs to make a few stops a game to give the Deacons a chance.

Wake Forest on special teams: The Deacons are yet another team that features a strong kick returner in Lovell Jackson, who averages 26.1 yards a return. The Deacons are allowing 23.6 yards per return.

What you need to know: The Deacons are third in the ACC in third-down conversions (45.3 percent) and second in time of possession (32:08). Georgia Tech leads both categories.

What you may not know: Don't confuse the town of Wake Forest with the university. The campus used to be located in the town, which is north of Raleigh. But, after the medical school moved to Winston-Salem in 1941, the rest of the campus ultimately settled there, as well, in 1956.

Coach: Jim Grobe, 58-49 in his ninth season at Wake; 91-82-1 overall.
