NCAA Football: Syracuse at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means... time for the blog that gives you the internet’s most ridiculous college football preview series- it’s #FakeNunes time. Can we keep finding ways to get #jokesandgarbage into a Syracuse Orange preview? You be the judge....

Now onto this week’s opponent

Opponent: Wake Forest Demon Deacons

Location: Winston Salem, NC

Students: 5,465 students who love Sam Hartman more than Notre Dame students do

The 2023 Fake Nunes Statistical Index (#FNSI)

We continue to look to innovate our analytics model so we here’s what the lab cooked up for this season.

Rivalry Trophy

The FNSI staff won’t give up on their quest to bring back more tradition into today’s college game. Let’s see what they’ve got for this one

The Bakers Dozen

This will be the 13th meeting between the two schools and the winner of the game takes over the series lead. That’s deserving of 13 of the best donuts we can find.

The True North Difference

In order to maintain our status as #CanadasCollegeTeam, each week we look at which team has more Canadian players on their roster.

Wake has Uber Ajongo from Ottawa and while that’s an amazing All-Name candidate, it’s just a loonie to the Orange’s toonie.

Advantage: Syracuse

Notable Alum

Bringing back this one as we love to drop, some knowledge every now and then to help our loyal readers possibly win a trivia night. After all we are the Syracuse blog that loves you back and we take that seriously.

David Chase vs Aaron Sorkin

Two television legends square off. The Sopranos vs The West Wing? Who would you pick?

Advantage: Push because everyone wins when the writing is good

Football Program Hashtag:

#None vs #GoDeacs

Wake even uses the top hot emoji. We appreciate that level of detail.

Advantage: Wake Forest

The Official #FakeNunes Game Prediction

Syracuse takes the field to the theme from The Sopranos which makes Wake Forest and Rutgers fans upset, but the Orange are fired up behind IC Nunzio. The game features both teams running on 80% of their plays, which means The CW doesn’t have to worry about the fourth quarter cutting into their scheduled programming. Syracuse gets win #6 behind the legs of Dan Villari. Now that’s amore.

Final Score: Syracuse 23 Wake Forest 17
