Wake Forest has a comparable schedule to Maryland. The biggest challenge for the Demon Deacons outside of Clemson and Florida State likely will be the Oct. 26 road game against Miami.
The Hurricanes have dominated the series. Miami has won the last four games since joining the ACC, and the streak stretches to six games overall.
Another commonality Wake Forest shares with Maryland is its futility on offense. The team was slightly better in total offense last season, ranking ahead of the Terrapins at 11th in the conference.The dominating defensive trio of Florida State, Clemson and NC State likely will halt the Demon Deacons' hopes of a division crown as well.
