Placekicker Matt Wisnosky, who had two kicks blocked in all of last season, had three blocked today midway through the second quarter - two field goals as well as an extra point that led to a UNC safety.

Running back Chris Barclay recorded his fourth 100-yard career game, which have all come over the last five games. Barclay reached the 100-yard mark in the first half for the third time this season and finished the day with 160 yards. His 35 carries ties as the ninth-most in a game in school history.

Barclay recorded his 18th career touchdown, moving into sole possession of seventh place in WFU's career rushing TD chart. He also vaulted from 18th to 13th place on the career rushing yards list, finishing the day with 1,611 career yards.

Jason Anderson recorded his sixth touchdown of 50 yards or more with a 52-yarder in the second quarter. It was also his fourth touchdown this season of 38 yards or longer. With the score he moved into a tie for sixth place on WFU career receiving TDs chart with 13.

Anderson recorded a career-high eight catches for 137 yards. It was his fourth career 100-yard receiving game (first this season) and the third-highest yardage total.

With a career-best 311 passing yards today (22-of-33), Randolph recorded WFU's first 300-yard passing game since Oct. 21, 2000 when James MacPherson had 343 at Maryland.

Randolph has moved up to 16th place on WFU's career passing chart with 1,852 total yards.

Nick Burney recorded his first career receiving TD on his first catch of the year.

Entering the game, Wake Forest had lost five fumbles all season. Today, Willie Idlette lost three (two on punt returns, one on a reception). Idlette had just one fumble this season entering today's game (at Virginia) but it was not a turnover.

Receiver Nate Morton had a career-best day, catching six passes for 61 yards. The redshirt freshman entered the day with three catches for 57 yards on the season.

Wake's 562 yards of total offense were the most since amassing 577 at Navy on Nov. 18, 2000. It is also the ninth-highest single-game total in school history. The Deacs also outgained the Tar Heels 562-475 - the second straight game and the only two games this season that WFU has totaled more yards in offense than its opponent.

Today tied as WFU's worst showing in terms of turnover margin. The Deacs, which led the ACC and ranked ninth nationally with +1.22 entering the game, ended up -2 in turnover margin today. The Deacs lost three fumbles while UNC had one interception. WFU was also -2 against Georgia Tech earlier this year - the only two times this season it has not had the turnover advantage.

Linebacker Brad White recorded his first career interception, scoring a touchdown on a 11-yard pick in the fourth quarter.
