Just reached halftime here at RFK Stadium, and Wake Forest has finally scored. The Demon Deacons produced a 12-play, 98-yard drive after a Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada interception to pull within 13-7.
The big question: What took so long?
Not necessarily to score. But to figure out that maybe D.J. Boldin, the guy with 77 receptions this season, might be a good guy to involve in things.
Boldin was mostly ignored for much of the first half, but had two catches for 51 yards on the scoring drive. He also had an acrobatic touchdown that was called back by a holding penalty.
Wake fans could be forgiven for wondering where the heck their all-conference wideout was, especially since he was usually only in single coverage and stopping the pass isn’t exactly the strength of Navy’s defense.
More to come.
