Demon Deacons' defense aims to slow Wolfpack in ACC matchup

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Wake Forest's defense has been good enough to give its offense time to figure some things out after a bumpy start. And that has the Demon Deacons heading into Saturday's game with instate rival North Carolina State near the top of their Atlantic Coast Conference division.

The Demon Deacons (4-0, 1-0 ACC) enter the game ranked 12th nationally against the run (88.5 yards per game) and 20th in scoring defense (16.5 points). That unit has given up more points each week, though that has coincided with the offense picking up its pace, too, to average nearly 32 points over the past three games.

It's been the right balance for Wake Forest, which is going for the program's first 5-0 start in a decade .
