Wake Forest Football Investigating "Security Breach" Regarding Louisville Game Plan

Wake Forest football is currently investigating whether Louisville "knew too much" ahead of their game last Saturday, according to a report.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports that head coach Dave Clawson is concerned that there was a "security breach" regarding the Demon Deacons' game plan against the Cardinals.

“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,’’ coach Dave Clawson said Tuesday. “I have shared it with Ron Wellman, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure all of our information and data is more secure moving forward.’’

According to the report, Clawson told Wellman about the potential breach on Friday, after documents were found by a Wake Forest staffer at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Wellman says that the athletic department is currently investigating the matter.

If Louisville had Wake's game plan ahead of time, it did a good job of hiding it until crunch time. The Demon Deacons shut down the Cardinals offense through three quarters, and led 12-10 heading into the final period in Louisville. In the fourth quarter, however, the game flipped, and Louisville outscored Wake 34-0, winning the game 44-12.

We'll update as more on this bizarre story out of the ACC is released.
