The Army Black Knights will play the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in a non-conference game on Saturday night at Truist Field in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The Army offense is averaging 32.3 points per game with 114.3 passing yards per game and 302.3 rushing yards per game. Cade Ballard has thrown for 320 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 131 yards and one touchdown for the Black Knights this season. Tyrell Robinson has rushed for 282 yards and one touchdown, while Ay’Jaun Marshall has caught 4 passes for 141 yards and two scores for Army.

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 4-1 (1-1) this season after they defeated Florida State by a score of 31-21 in their last game. Wake Forest outgained FSU by a total of 405-393 and managed to go 10-18 on third down attempts in the win. The Wake Forest offense is averaging 40.4 points per game with 298 passing yards per game and 133 rushing yards per game. Sam Hartman has thrown for 1,196 yards, 15 touchdowns, and two interceptions for the Demon Deacons this season. Justice Ellison has rushed for 300 yards and two touchdowns, while A.T.

Army is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against the ACC and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 5-1 in Army’s last 6 road games. Wake Forest 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in Wake Forest’s last 4 games against an independent team. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

These two teams are trending in opposite directions coming into this matchup. Army is coming off of a double-digit loss to Georgia State at home, while Wake Forest won by 10 points at FSU and nearly defeated Clemson at home. Neither defense has been very good this season, but Wake Forest has played against better teams. I am going to take Army with the points in this game.
