Wake Forest 26, Syracuse 14: End Of 3rd Quarter

SYRACUSE --Wide receiver Chris Givens' second touchdown of the day has helped give the Wake Forest Demon Deacons a 26-14 lead over the Syracuse Orange entering the final quarter of a non-conference game at the Carrier Dome. Givens' 22-yard TD reception capped off a 11-play, 76-yard scoring drive that immediate answered an Orange TD, which cut the margin to 20-14.

SU's second-TD drive was aided by a few of Wake Forest penalties. The first, came on a third-and-five that featured Wake Forest defensive back Daniel Mack arriving too early on a would-be, first-down catch. Then, on a third-and-six from the Deacons' 11-yard line, SU quarterback Ryan Nassib was roughed on a throwing attempt, which ended up being tipped in the air and caught for a would-be interception by a Wake Forest defensive back. However, the major penalty allowed for the drive to continue and two plays later Antwon Bailey scored from one yard out.
