Can Wake Forest get a top 25 rank?

After knocking Florida State out ofthe rankinga thanks to their 35-30 win against them, the Demon Deacons  may have their sites set high, but how high could be answered this Saturday when they take on Coastal rivals Virginia Tech.

The Deacons have recovered nicely from their disapointing opening game OT loss against Syracuse and they rank 17th in passing yards and dont give up a lot of points either. However to take the next big step they will have to overcome the Hokies, who despite much expectation are not looking that impressive. They lost their only real test to date against Clemson without putting up much of a fight, and they were only 56 seconds away from an embarrassing defeat against Miami. This is not the expected form of a 19th ranked team.

So can Wake do it again? Well they will need a bit of luck and its hard to see them getting 5 turnovers again, but at home they have a chance and we expect them to at least be inside the spread and possibly sneak this one.
