Confidence is still high at Wake Forest.
The Demon Deacons are shrugging off last week's loss to Notre Dame, and they aren't dwelling on their current slide of three losses in four games.
That's because they're still in the hunt to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game - if they beat No. 9 Clemson this week.
Wake Forest (5-4, 4-2) is tied for second place in the Atlantic Division with Florida State. Both are one game behind the Tigers.
Wins against Clemson and struggling Maryland would send the Demon Deacons to Charlotte for the ACC title game.
A win over the Tigers also would make the Demon Deacons bowl eligible and would end a five-game losing streak at Clemson's ''Death Valley.''
