Wake players talk about the game

The Hurricanes defeated Wake Forest by the score of 16-10 this afternoon. Read on to see what some of the Wake players were saying after the game.

Wake Forest QB Riley Skinner

On what they're going to have to do to start winning …
"We need to make plays and score touchdowns. It's the same situation that we've had a lot this year and last year. You just need to play your offense and keep the chains moving and hopefully you'll get the ball in the end zone. They just cut us up pretty well and we weren't able to move the ball."

On idea of his team right now…
"We're not really sure right now. I don't really think we've really found our identity on offense. We've been changing it a lot and doing a bunch of different things and unfortunately, none of them stuck. We're going to have to go back to the drawing board again and figure out ways to put more points on the board."

Wake Forest OL Jeff Griffin

On Miami's adjustments of Miami in 2nd quarter to rest of game…
"We saw film on Miami and they played the eye formation all season so we pretty much knew they were going to do that today. We just thought we were going to take it to them and play good defense."

On what's next for Wake Forest…
"We just need to worry about the next game. You can't worry about what happened today—now we need to worry about what we're going to do next week."

Wake Forest Safety Chip Vaughn

On Miami's quarterbacks…
"We knew coming in that they were going to change some things up. With Marve and with Harris, they were just really running the ball. Everything we scouted, they did it. There weren't any surprises. It just came down to guys making plays."

On needing one big turnover…
"We needed it somewhere. On a fumble, on an interception, tip passes. We kind of pride ourselves on forcing tip passes. We did have some opportunities but we didn't capitalize on those plays."

On things not working out well so far this year…
"It's like bouncing a ball. We just keep thinking that one of these days that ball is going to bounce back into our favor but right now it just hasn't. I think one of these days it will."
