Wake Looks To Bounce Back Against Winless Army

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- While Jim Grobe appreciates the way the service academies play football, his team can't afford to get beat by another one when the humbled Demon Deacons host Army on Saturday night.

Grobe spent a decade as an assistant at Air Force, and has played six games against the academies since 2007. Wake Forest is 3-3 in those games, including three losses in the last four meetings with Navy -- which, like Army (0-2), uses a triple-option offense.

The Demon Deacons (2-1) are trying to rebound from one of the worst losses in recent school history.

They were routed 52-0 at nationally ranked Florida State team last week. It was their worst loss since the 1996 Maryland team beat them by the same score.
