Trouble spots for the Tigers...

WR Terrence Davis: He's emerged as the Deacons' go-to receiver in the absence of Michael Campanaro, who's been sidelined since Sept. 29 with a broken hand. Davis has had two 100-yard receiving games so far this season.

QB Tanner Price: He's a veteran now, and knows the ropes. His 34 touchdown passes rank sixth in school history, and he holds the school record for passes throw without an interception.

Wake D pressures, with strong secondary

Morris previews Deacs

RB Josh Harris: He's a tough, hard-nosed runner whose 61.7 average leads the team.

RB Deandre Martin: He complements Harris with 55.8 yards per game, and is also a weapon as a passer off the reverse.

FB Tommy Bohanon: Coach Jim Grobe likes to utilize his fullback as an expected receiver. Bohanon has three TD catches this season - tied for best on the team.

DB Kevin Johnson: He picked off his first interception against Maryland.

P Alexander Kinal: An Australian with a background in rugby and Australian Rules Football, Kinal has provided the Deacons with precision punting, with 15 punts inside the 20 so far this season.

DEs Zach Thompson & Hassan Hazime: Both have been honored as ACC defensive linemen of the week this season.

DB A.J. Marshall: He brings experience to a new role, having moved from cornerback to safety earlier in the year.

LBs Mike Olson & Justin Jackson: Both rank among the top 10 in the ACC in tackles.
