“Everyone knows we have to do a little more and get better without Maquel,” Lucas said. “He was a big part of our offense. It was nice to see players step up and get it done.” On defense, Wake Forest recorded a sack, a blocked field goal, a fumble and three interceptions from three different players. The Cougars held their opponent to single digits for the third time this year. With their seventh win in a row, Wake Forest improved to 7-1 overall and 2-0 in NAC 6 conference play. The Cougars are undefeated on the road at 4-0 and have outscored their opponents 336-116 so far this season. Wake Forest’s next game will be against undefeated conference rival Rolesville. The Rams are coming off a 49-6 victory over Knightdale. Rolesville has scored 41 points or more five times this season. Wake Forest will try to hand them their first loss of the year at home Friday at 7 p.m. “We are taking this week like all the other weeks,” Lucas said. “Every game is a big game to us. Our players are going to be working all week to get prepared.”
