How good was Justin Howell last season against Wake Forest?

Howell threw for 550 yards and six touchdowns against Wake Forest last season, so he will bring confidence into this start. The Demon Deacons have struggled late in the year over the last five years, going 7-11 in the month of November. All the pressure is on them in this game, which makes this a tough task on the road.

Hartman leads an elite Demon Deacons offense that ranks fifth in scoring, averaging 43.4 points per game. Wake Forest has scored at least 35 in every game with a season high of 70 points two weeks ago vs. Army. Hartman’s 28 total TDs (22 passing, six rushing) are the sixth most in FBS.

Wake Forest at North Carolina Pick

Last time out, then #13 Wake Forest hosted the Duke Blue Devils and cruised to a 45-7 victory. Wake scored the first 45 points of this game and looked like a top 10 team with this win. Sam Hartman went 24/37 for 402 yards, 3 touchdowns, zero interceptions, and added 61 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.


What you need to know about Wake Forest

The Duke Blue Devils typically have all the answers at home, but last Saturday Wake Forest proved too difficult a challenge as the Demon Deacons won 45-7. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 28-0.


What you need to know about North Carolina

This will be the toughest team that Wake Forest has faced this season. The Demon Deacons have relied on their offense to make up for a shaky defense, but that is going to be more of a challenge on Saturday. North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell became the program’s all-time leader in passing yards in last week’s loss to Notre Dame.


How to make North Carolina vs. Wake Forest picks

The model is leaning over on the total, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in almost 60 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.


Wake Forest (-2, 66.5) vs. NC State

This might be the most entertaining game all weekend. In fact, pretty much every game Wake Forest is must-see at this point. The Demon Deacons finally lost to North Carolina after building an early lead, and they fell just short of covering the 2.5-point spread. QB Sam Hartman has been a star, and I see no reason for that not to continue.


Texas A&M (-3, 55.5) at Mississippi

While Texas A&M’s defense might not be at Georgia’s historic level, it’s the closest thing to it in college football. On Saturday, it shined against Auburn. The Aggies allowed only three points and easily covered the 4.5-point spread. A&M has now won and covered in four straight games, allowing only 31 points over the past three.


Georgia (-20.5, 56) at Tennessee

The Vols are fun. They might also be pretty good. But at the very least, they’re fun. That much is clear after Tennessee beat Kentucky, 45-42, covering the one-point spread after a week of interesting line movement.


Michigan (-1, 48.5) at Penn State

Penn State has a weird month, although the Nittany Lions find themselves as a short favorite against a top-10 team. The loss to Illinois could have been a death blow to the season, but Penn State had a decent bounce back last weekend against Maryland. It wasn’t explosive or dominant, but James Franklin’s team did cover the 10-point spread.
