BTP Pregame Predictions: Wake Forest

So how’s this thing gonna go? Can State get out of Winston-Salem with the W?

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at North Carolina State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

NC State left Boston last week with a hard earned and much needed - even if it was ugly - win. The Wolfpack hit the road again this week, on a bus this time, heading to Winston-Salem to take on the 6-4 and way-better-than-their-record-indicates Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Can the Pack get the win at BB&T Field and move to 6-1 in the ACC (the most conference wins for State since 1994)?

As per normal, each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a “classic” Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Let’s get to it!
