"No one wants to lose and lose as much as we have," said Manning, who was intercepted twice and had a fumble returned for a touchdown. "It's obviously been tough all year. Nothing has come easy. We've lost heartbreakers. We've lost some like this as well, where we just never could get much going."
"I thought it was a key to the game, John and Doral (Moore) having a presence and posting up early, making Georgia Tech guard us," Wake Forest coach Manning said. "We wanted to make sure Lammers had to work on both ends of the floor."
