WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Whether a close game or a blowout, Wake Forest always seemed to find a way lately to lose to Florida State.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest says Kendall Hinton will return for his final season and is expected to play only at wide receiver.
Coach Dave Clawson on Thursday announced that Hinton would be back for his redshirt senior season.
Hinton played both receiver and quarterback last season, catching six passes for 61 yards. He also rushed for two scores in 2018.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Jamie Newman's season started on a sour note and finished on a sweet one.
Newman ran for a 1-yard touchdown with 34 seconds left to cap a big performance and Wake Forest's comeback in a 37-34 victory over Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl on Saturday. The quarterback who lost the competition for the starting job in fall camp, then replaced an injured Sam Hartman, delivered big play after big play in a storybook ending to the season.
Birmingham Bowl: Wake Forest (6-6) vs. Memphis (8-5), Saturday, noon EST (ESPN)
Line: Memphis by 3 1/2.
Series Record: Tied 2-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
Memphis's short-handed running game against Wake Forest's defense. The Tigers rank second nationally in rushing offense, but will be without unanimous All-American RB Darrell Henderson. Wake Forest is 10th in the Atlantic Coast Conference in run defense, allowing 191.3 yards per game and 29 touchdowns on the ground.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest will start redshirt sophomore Jamie Newman at quarterback this week against No. 22 North Carolina State.
Newman was listed as the starter on the team's depth chart released Tuesday, two days before gameday. He replaces Sam Hartman, a freshman who started the first nine games before suffering a season-ending leg injury late in last week's 41-24 loss to No. 13 Syracuse.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest says starting quarterback Sam Hartman will miss the rest of the season with a leg injury.
Coach Dave Clawson disclosed Hartman's injury on Sunday, a day after he was hurt during a 41-24 loss to Syracuse.
Hartman had started all nine games for the Demon Deacons (4-5, 1-4 ACC) but becomes the 12th Wake Forest player to suffer a season-ending injury. He was 161 of 291 for 1,984 yards and 16 touchdowns.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Eric Dungey rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown, Jarveon Howard ran for two scores and No. 22 Syracuse beat Wake Forest 41-24 on Saturday.
Dungey — whose average of 294.1 total yards per game ranks second in the ACC — was 23 of 35 for 157 yards and also ran for a 26-yard score to help the Orange (7-2, 4-2, No. 19 CFP) win their first game as a Top 25 team since the Dwight Freeney days in 2001.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Wake Forest running back Matt Colburn II couldn't believe the space he had on many of his carries against Louisville.
While that says a lot about the Demon Deacons' run blocking, the senior did a lot in turning those openings into a career day against the school that pulled its scholarship offer.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Cam Akers had two touchdown runs, including a 58-yarder, and Deondre Francois threw for a season-high 353 yards as Florida State bounced back from a sloppy start and scored 38 straight points in a 38-17 win over Wake Forest on Saturday.
Akers, who has struggled for much of his sophomore season, had 98 yards on 13 carries for Florida State (4-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Seminoles set season highs for points scored and offensive yards (485).
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Kendall Hinton is back for Wake Forest — but as a backup quarterback.
Coach Dave Clawson on Tuesday listed Hinton as the backup to freshman Sam Hartman for the Demon Deacons' game against No. 8 Notre Dame (3-0) this weekend.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Anthony Brown kept beating Wake Forest's defensive backs with long throws. That helped Boston College beat the Demon Deacons — and Hurricane Florence.
Brown threw two of his career-high five touchdown passes to Jeff Smith, and BC defeated Wake Forest 41-34 on Thursday night in a game that started two hours early with the hurricane approaching.
"Everybody was on point with what we were doing and everybody was in tune with what we had to execute," Brown said.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — No Wake Forest quarterback had a better starting debut than Sam Hartman. The freshman wants to keep it going in Week 2.
The Demon Deacons (1-0) play host to Towson (1-0) of the FCS on Saturday, and they hope Hartman will be just as effective against the Tigers as he was in his first college start.
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.
