Orange accumulates just 14 first downs in 28-9 loss to Demon Deacons.

On a chilly, wet night in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the Syracuse Orange football team took on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons with a mission—getting its first ACC win of the season. The mission was unsuccessful, however, as the Demon Deacons (5-1, 2-1 ACC) came out on top, 28-9.

The game started with a three-and-out for SU (2-4, 0-2 ACC) on its first drive. On the ensuing possession, Wake Forest fumbled a fourth down snap in its own end zone. The Demon Deacons fell on the ball for a safety, giving the Orange a 2-0 lead.
