Wake Forest welcomes opportunity to play storied Irish football program

Wake Forest is 5-3 going into this Saturday’s matchup with the Irish, coming off of a 49-24 loss last week at North Carolina.

The Demon Deacons do own a victory over Florida State this year.

Groves Stadium sits just 31,000 fans, and this game is being treated like one of the biggest in Wake Forest football history.

“We scheduled this game knowing that this would be a really tough challenge for our coaches and for our players, but I think the opportunity for our fans and for the Winston-Salem community to have Notre Dame come to town was something that we had to do,” said Coach Jim Grobe. “I think it's going to be real exciting. I think it's great for not only our football team, but I think it's a great opportunity for our fans to see one of the most storied football teams in college football history come to Winston-Salem.”

Notre dame and Wake Forest kickoff at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday night in Winston-Salem. It’s one of a school record six night games this season for the Irish.
