When Virginia faces Wake Forest, it will have several things that is will need to stop. Quarterback Riley Skinner is comfortable in the pocket, and has a solid group of receivers. Skinner also knows how to get rid of the ball quickly, and has completed 72 percent of his passes.
The most telling statistic is that the Demon Deacons have score nine non-offensive touchdowns so far this season. Kick returner Kevin Marion leads the nation in kickoff return yardage, and his last four returns have gone for 90, 86, 80, and 46 yards respectively. Wake Forest also knows how to pressure the quarterback and force interceptions.
