Gotta go with the Deacons here. Clemson has been all but horrid this year and now playing their first road game. I keep hearing everyone saying Wake's run defense got exposed by Navy last week, but come on now, all Navy does is run the ball. Six turnovers for Wake in that Navy game, you won't see that again.
