  A.T. Perry said he likely won't sleep for a while and that's understandable. Perry had three touchdown receptions and his last, an acrobatic 22-yard catch in the left corner of the end zone, lifted No. 19 Wake Forest to a 40-37 overtime victory over Syracuse on Saturday. "I knew I caught it," said Perry, who also scored on pass plays covering 46 and 69 yards. "I just wanted to know if it was in bounds. After I caught it, I closed my eyes. I've looked forward my whole life to making a catch to win a game. I'm shaking. I won't be able to sleep tonight." The triumph for Wake Forest (6-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) gave the Demon Deacons their first 6-0 start since 1944.

Perry's winning catch came while he was falling backwards and spinning to the turf. "I'm small and I can twist and torque my body," he said. The win was just another step in the right direction for the Demon Deacons, who are aiming high. "Nothing is done yet. Our goal is to win lots of games and be in a big, final game," said quarterback Sam Hartman, who accounted for four touchdowns. In addition to his three scores to Perry, Hartman ran it in from the 1 for another. He was 19 of 32 for 330 yards passing. "We're proud to get the win, but we have a lot more goals than 6-0," coach Dave Clawson said. The loss was the second straight heartbreaker for Syracuse (3-3, 0-2), which lost to Florida State 33-30 a week ago. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  Nick Sciba kicked a 29-yard field goal with 22 seconds left and No. 24 Wake Forest beat Louisville 37-34 on Saturday to remain unbeaten. Sam Hartman threw for 324 yards and two touchdowns to lead the offense for the Demon Deacons (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who got a huge boost late from Justice Ellison with several patient and chain-moving runs on the go-ahead drive.

Louisville (3-2, 1-1) got a final drive with a chance to tie and no timeouts, but the Cardinals' desperate, lateral-filled play never got across midfield before Wake Forest's Rondell Bothroyd recovered the loose ball to end this one after time had expired. Malik Cunningham had a big day for the Cardinals, throwing for two scores while running for two additional TDs. His biggest throw of the day came when he hit Tyler Harrell over the middle in a frenetic final few minutes, and Harrell pulled away down the left sideline from four black jerseys in pursuit for a 75-yard touchdown that tied the game at 34 with 3:01 left. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  Sam Hartman threw three touchdown passes and Wake Forest scored on its first seven possessions in a 37-17 victory against Virginia on Friday night. The Demon Deacons (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their fifth in a row against the Cavaliers as Hartman connected on scoring throws of 39 yards to Taylor Morin and 12 yards each to Blake Whiteheart and A.T. Perry. The Cavaliers (2-2, 0-2) nearly failed for the second week in a row to force a punt, following a 59-39 loss to No. 21 North Carolina in which they allowed 699 yards by allowing 473 to the Demon Deacons, many coming on big plays. Wake Forest finally kicked the ball away with a 37-17 lead and 8:36 to go. The Demon Deacons drove 75 yards in the opening 2:41 with Hartman finding Morin all by himself for a 39-yard touchdown. Virginia drove to the Demon Deacons' 4 yard-line with a first-and-goal, but Brennan Armstrong lost two yards, Mike Hollins gained a yard and Armstrong threw incomplete on third and fourth down. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  Sam Hartman threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns, and A.T. Perry grabbed seven passes for 155 yards and a TD as Wake Forest cruised past mistake-plagued Florida State 35-14 Saturday afternoon. Wake Forest (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) rolled up 484 yards - 332 in the first half - of total offense, including 225 on the ground. Florida State (0-3, 0-1), which juggled McKenzie Milton and Jordan Travis at quarterback, committed six turnovers, but stayed within striking range in the first half thanks to a 65-yard deep strike from Travis to a wide-open Ontaria Wilson. "The offensive line did an incredible job," Hartman said. Hartman hit Perry in stride with a deep strike down the right side for a 49-yard TD to start the onslaught.

The Deacons scored their next two touchdowns after roughing-the-kicker and unnecessary-roughness penalties extended drives. "No way did we ever give ourselves a chance to play winning football," Florida State coach Mike Norvell said. "We continue to see the mistakes that cost us in the previous weeks." Leading by 21 points late in the third quarter, Wake Forest wiped out any realistic Florida State hopes by stopping Milton short of a first down on a fourth-and-2 run from the Deacons' 11. Early in the scoreless fourth quarter, Milton fumbled the ball into the Wake Forest end zone while stretching for the goal line. The ball slipped in and out of the hands of players on both teams before it was recovered by Deacons defensive end Luiji Vilain for a touchback. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  Sam Hartman passed for 244 yards and a touchdown, Christian Turner rushed for two scores and Wake Forest beat Norfolk State 41-16 on Saturday. Wake Forest scored 20 straight points, spanning halftime, to take control. Coach Dave Clawson had talked earlier this week about wanting to see better offensive execution after an "uneven" performance in the season-opening win against Old Dominion. He largely got what he was looking for Saturday, as the Demon Deacons ran for 161 yards and had 413 total yards while dipping into their depth chart against the Championship Subdivision opponent. "When you play these games and you have a physical advantage, you want to be efficient and you want to make explosive plays," Clawson said. "It's really hard to find any fault with what we did on offense other than when you put the 2s and the 3s in, you don't want it to drop off as much as it did." Jaquarii Roberson had four catches for 97 yards for the Demon Deacons (2-0), including when he ran past the defense for Hartman's deep ball for a 64-yard score on the first play of the second half. That marked his sixth straight game with a touchdown reception. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  Christian Beal-Smith ran for two touchdowns while Ja'Sir Taylor scored on a 99-yard kickoff return to help Wake Forest beat Old Dominion 42-10 in Friday night's season opener for both teams. It marked the Monarchs' return to the field after not playing last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Beal-Smith ran untouched around the left end and sprinted down the sideline for a 48-yard touchdown in the first quarter to get the Demon Deacons on the board. Then, after the Monarchs managed a field goal, Taylor came through with his huge return that squashed any fleeting momentum for ODU. The cornerback broke through an arm-tackle attempt and stayed on his feet through a stumble around the 20-yard line, then kicked into gear and down the sideline for the 99-yard score and a 14-3 lead. - Wake Forest/AP College Football

  07/25/21 - Donavon GreenerSo/2024, Wake Forest, 6-2, 210 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Wake Forest football coach Dave Clawson announced the team will be without three players -- two of which were returning starters -- for the 2021 season. The Deacons will be without wide receiver Donavon Greene and right tackle Je'Vionte' Nash, as well as reserve linebacker Chase Monroe, due to offseason injuries. "These three young men will play a key role off the field this season as they work towards a speedy and safe recovery," Clawson said in a statement provided by the athletics department.

Greene, a Mount Airy alumnus, started eight games last season and averaged 20.1 yards per catch. He enrolled at the school in 2019, appearing in four games to preserve his redshirt status. Nash started all nine games in 2020 and has 38 career appearances for the Deacons. He's been with the program since the 2016 season, opting to return for the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA to student-athletes. - Winston Salem Journal

  Carlos "Boogie" Basham has become the next Wake Forest alumnus to join the NFL. The defensive end was picked by the Buffalo with the 29th pick (61st overall) in the second round of the draft on Friday night. Basham is the highest pick for the Deacons since 2018, when Jessie Bates was selected in the second round by the Cincinnati Bengals. Bates is now considered one of the best safeties in the league. Basham, a Roanoke, Va., native leaves Winston-Salem as one of the best pass rushers in school history. His 20.5 career sacks ranks fourth all-time for the program. Basham became a high-profile prospect after his junior season in 2019, where he registered 11 sacks. In 2020, Basham appeared in seven games. He registered five sacks and 28 total tackles for Wake Forest (4-5). - Winston Salem Journal
