College Game Day Week 4 Week 2 YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE AT BB&T Field, the home of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The Deacons host the Maryland Terrapins this in the featured matchup. The Terrapins are lead by athletic and mobile QB Jamarr Robinson and his two highly skilled receivers Torrey Smith and Ronnie Tyler. The Deacons defense will have their hands full taking on the Terps’s offense, but they will be more than ready. The defense against UW, sacked QB Keith Price eight times, and against Ole Miss forced QB Nathan Stanley to throw six interceptions. If this game comes down to a kicking game, the edge must go to the Terrapins with Nick Ferrera who has already made one game winner.

QB Nathan Stanley must play better for the Rebels to win this game. If he has another poor performance, the Rebels may have turn to backup QB Raymond Cotton. The Wildcats offense may be too much for the Rebels to handle with all purpose back Randal Cobb. Including the 204 yards rushing, he has 8 receptions for 122 yards. I am looking for a Wildcats victory in this game.

Last year’s conference player of the year (unofficial), Sean Renfree has thrown for an impressive 575 yards so far this season, but has thrown 4 interceptions. Virginia’s QB Michael Strauss has thrown for 834 yards, a very impressive stat, but only has two touchdown passes. Based on looking at the stats neither team has a running game, maybe it is because each team has been behind in each game or they have pass wacky offenses. I expect this game to be high scoring, with Virginia getting their first W of the season. Analysis of Other Games The NC State Wolfpack take on UNC, can little brother takedown big brother? South Carolina looks to rebound against SEC cellar dweller Mississippi State Bulldogs after the devastating defeat against Georgia. After squeaking by against the Seminoles, Boston College looks to kick Clemson while they are down. Auburn looks to make a statement, as they play #5 Florida.
