WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina — Tyler Murphy does everything on offense for Boston College. Wake Forest is still looking for someone to do anything.

Two teams trending in opposite directions meet Saturday when the Eagles visit the struggling Demon Deacons.

BC (4-3, 1-2) has been one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's pleasant surprises.

Wake Forest (2-5, 0-3) has slogged through a season that has been pretty much what the outsiders expected a few months ago when the Demon Deacons were picked last.

The Eagles can move one step closer to their 14th bowl appearance in 16th seasons by taking care of a Demon Deacons team that has one of the nation's worst offenses and is headed for its sixth straight losing season.

Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson says his offense is taking "baby steps."
