Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson was asked whether it was a coincidence that his offense started scoring more after it was learned the team's game plan was leaked last season in what ended up becoming known as "WakeyLeaks." "I don't think we'll ever know," Clawson said. "Did it happen 36 times or did it happen 6 times? I'm glad we're playing better now. I think we're executing better. That has a lot to do with it. But if people don't have our game plans that helps as well."

After Wakeyleaks, Wake Forest has closed practices. The trickle down, Dave Clawson lets the players choose the music now. "So Elvis Costello and Talking Heads, that's all out," he said.

Dave Clawson said he pushed for the home-and-home series between Wake Forest and App State. "In-state rivalries are good for college football," he said. "It can't just be about eyes on television. It has to be about fans at games, and they're sold out."

Wake Forest is 3-0 and has the 5th-largest scoring differential in the country, but TE Cam Serigne says that's not changed the approach. "For years, we heard how bad we were," he said. "It's not going to change now that people think we're good."

Wake Forest has scored 30 or more points in every game this season. This is the first time since 2004 the Demon Deacons have scored 30-plus in three straight. Coach Dave Clawson has repeatedly said this is the best depth and talent he has had on offense, and it has shown clearly.

Dave Clawson, who saw both Lamar Jackson and the Clemson defense last year, on this game: "I'm just glad I don't have to watch the film on either of them this week."

An impressive performance today by Wake Forest's defense under new coordinator Jay Sawvel. The Demon Deacons forced four Boston College turnovers, which led to 21 points in a 34-10 road win. If this unit can maintain the opportunistic play it showed under Mike Elko, Wake Forest should be back in a bowl game.

Dave Clawson says Greg Dortch is "the kind of player that could've made you miss in a phone booth if those still existed." Dortch had 76 punt return yards in Week 1, the most by a Wake player since 2002.
