That’s right, baby. It’s your boys (#FakeNunes) and we’re back to bring you the only weekly preview you didn’t know you needed, but actually do need because without it you wouldn’t be ready for a Syracuse Orange game day.... or something like that. It’s the final week of the football season so let’s fire it up for one last preview

Opponent: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Location: Winston-Salem, N.C.

Students: 8,401

The 2019 Fake Nunes Statistical Index (#FNSI)

Once again we bring you categories that no other preview will give you because that’s what we do best.


It’s Senior Day at The Dome so we expect the traditional home uniform for the Orange and this should be worn for all home games except an annual Orange Out.

Wake Forest has a pretty clean road look which means we could see this or an all-white verson. No matter what we should be in for a visually appealing contest.

Advantage: The Fans

Strength & Conditioning Coach Last Man Standing Match:

Something new for this year is to compare the two S&C coaches and tell you which one would win a Last Man Standing match. This week it’s Sean Edinger against Brandon Hourigan who has been with Dave Clawson at both Richmond and Bowling Green. Not sure that this one woud be much of a contest since Edinger likely has a lot of frustration to unleash.

Advantage: Edinger

Football Program Hashtag:

#OITNF vs #GoDeacs

Here’s what we said last week
“Devoted readers of this preview series should already know that simplicity is rewarded here.”

Nothing’s changed our mind about this.

Advantage: Wake Forest

Pop Culture Alum: Each week we’ll compare alums who are relevant in pop culture

Michael Parkhurst vs. Miles Robinson

This week we pit two defenders from Atlanta United against each other. While one is stepping away from the game the other is just getting started.

Advantage: Wake Forest because around here we respect those with the Captain’s armband.

Overly Optimistic SU Fan Prediction from MrSUFootball

The man who didn’t stop believing is crushed right now. But have no fear loyal Nunesians @MrSUFootball is already on the 2020 train. He’s already put down his Bowl game deposit for the College Football Playoff along with every possible ACC bowl tie-in.

That’s how you cover your bases folks.

The Official #FakeNunes Game Prediction:

Despite a Sterling Hofrichter 53 yard field goal, the Demon Deacons offense proves to be a bit too much for the Orange. Wake wins 39-20 and we’re on to basketball.
