DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest's roster was decimated by injuries before the 2018 season began, and things only got worse as the games came and went.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Cade Carney rushed for a career-high 223 yards and Wake Forest closed out its regular season with a 59-7 win over Duke on Saturday.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Wake Forest true freshman quarterback Sam Hartman wasn't entirely immune to the type of blunders that plague young players and drive coaches crazy.
Still, he was prolific enough to get away with it in what was roundly reviewed as a promising collegiate debut.
Hartman passed for 378 yards and two touchdowns, Cade Carney powered in for a short TD in overtime, and the Demon Deacons escaped their season-opening visit to Tulane with a 23-17 victory Thursday night.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest won't have running back Cade Carney and safety Jessie Bates for this week's game at No. 5 Notre Dame.

BOSTON (AP) — When Jessie Bates III got back to the sideline after his third-quarter interception, his teammates let him have it.
After all, the Wake Forest safety failed to get the ball into the end zone when he dove for the pylon on the return.
"A lot of people were telling him to get off the field, or 'Give us pushups,'" said Cameron Glenn, who forced a fumble and also had an interception in the Demon Deacons' 34-10 victory over Boston College on Saturday.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Forget those old times of futility, and don't even worry about having to play football in a hurricane. Wake Forest is winning, and the way the Demon Deacons beat Syracuse 28-9 on Saturday night was methodical.
John Wolford ran for two touchdowns and a career-best 94 yards, and threw for 140 yards to lead Wake Forest (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Matt Colburn rushed for a career-high 118 yards and an injury-depleted Wake Forest beat Delaware 38-21 on Saturday.
