It was a very “big play”, but it is kind of a rip, because it only counts for two points, but former Dudley High School speedster Kenny Okoro blocked an extra point by Presbyterian College and he took it back all the way for two points in Wake’s win over PC on Thursday night…..(You have to run it back all the way and you only get two points, that is a RIP…..Keep it rolling though KO.)

On Thursday evening at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem…..

There were big defensive plays including a 44-yard interception return for a touchdown by Alex Frye and a 90-yard return of a blocked extra point by cornerback Kenny Okoro(Dudley HS).

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Blue Hose of Presbyterian College met the definition of a “deserving team” as enumerated in NCAA by-laws, and Wake Forest decided the visitors deserved a serious effort Thursday night. This wasn’t a particularly good thing for Presbyterian.

The Demon Deacons set a school record for points at BB&T Field in a 53-13 win over the outmanned but creative Hose, a stand-in for originally scheduled Tulane. PC is a provisional member of the Football Bowl Subdivision, but it awards enough scholarships that Wake can count the result toward the NCAA minimum of six victories required for postseason eligibility. So says the Division I Manual, which uses the phrase “deserving team” to identify opponents worthy of inclusion in an FBS club’s postseason resume.

And victory was not an issue on this night. The Deacs dressed 70 players and used 65 of them. Four of them were quarterbacks, and they threw all the first pass of their college careers.

“I wish we could have played more people earlier, but I credit PC for that,” Wake coach Jim Grobe said.
