Kenny Okoro and the Wake defense came to play Saturday. AJ Green and the Bulldogs were able to slip by conference heavyweight South Carolina What We Learned #1. Don’t sleep on NC State. The Wolfpack have a perfect record so far this year, but all you hear about are Boston College and Maryland—even Wake Forest is gaining more hype than the Pack. It is surprising because if you look at the two main weapons for the high scoring Wolfpack neither are doing particularly exceptional thus far: QB Russell Wilson has thrown 6 TD’s but also 4 picks. RB Brandon Barnes has had a solid start- putting up 315 yards but only 2 TD’s. Look for these two talents to find their groove as the season progresses. #2. Virginia needs a running game. The Cavalier QB is leading the ACC in passing yards with 1265, but the leading rusher for Virginia only has 52 yards on the year. Teams have been locking in on the UV passing game, and with the slow start for the team, they could really use a back that can find them some yards to keep the defenses honest. #3. South Carolina isn’t bullet proof Are the Gamecocks out of the national title picture? More than likely. Are they out of the SEC picture? Absolutely not. While they weren’t quite able to top a determined Georgia squad, look for them to bounce back big next week when SEC surprise Auburn comes to town.
