Wake Forest, Louisville square off as two of ACC’s hottest teams

Louisville visits No. 24 Wake Forest on Saturday in a meeting between two of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s hottest teams.The Cardinals (3-1, 1-0 ACC) are coming off their third straight victory, a 31-23 decision at Florida State. Louisville is seeking to improve to 4-1 for the first time in four years.The undefeated Demon Deacons (4-0, 2-0) scored on their first seven possessions last week when they earned a 37-17 road triumph against Virginia.Wake Forest notched six sacks and forced the Cavaliers into committing two turnovers (a fumble and an interception) to make it 11 takeaways overall and a plus-seven turnover margin this season.”They’re where they are supposed to be,” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said of the Deacons’ defensive players. “They’re playing hard up front. Everything starts in the trenches.”They’re making the quarterback throw the ball when he doesn’t want to. When that happens, then sometimes those turnovers are going to happen.”Wake Forest linebacker Luke Masterson has a team-high 27 tackles (18 solo) after moving from safety.”Luke’s an excellent football player. We’ve wanted to move him there for two years,” Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. “We moved him there during the Florida State game a few years ago and he had 18 tackles. We just could never stay healthy at safety.”Defensive end Luiji Vilain has 2.5 sacks for a unit yielding 357.8 yards per game.Offensively, Wake Forest is led by quarterback Sam Hartman, who has completed 74 of 112 passes (66.1 percent) for 961 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception.
