Clemson backup safety Kantrell Brown sprained his neck against Wake Forest but is expected to make a full recovery. Brown, a sophomore, lay motionless, face first, on the Clemson field Saturday afternoon after a kickoff return by the Demon Deacons. He was taken off the field on a stretcher with his neck in a brace, although he was moving his legs, arms and hands before he left the field. The school said Brown was taken to Oconee Memorial Hospital in South Carolina where tests were negative for anything more serious.

Wake Forest Coach Jim Grobe had tried all week to keep everyone calm as the Demon Deacons prepared to play one of the biggest games in school history. But as students tried to tear down the goal posts and his players hooted and hollered in the locker room, Grobe finally loosened up. "It's time to dream a little bit," Grobe said. Kevin Marion had an 81-yard touchdown run and Patrick Ghee intercepted a pass in the end zone with under a minute left Saturday night as No. 22 Wake Forest held off No.

Wake up, Wake Forest! Five games into the college football season, you're not supposed to be the last remaining unbeaten team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. That's never happened before, at any point in any season. You've taken advantage of a cupcake schedule, sure, but you're one victory away from only the second 6-0 start in school history and the first since 1944, when a team coached by D.C. "Peahead" Walker won its first seven games.
