The best moment of the game was when LB Janarius Robinson corralled Wake Forest's Jamie Newman for a 6-yard loss, then took a knee after the play. It was his first big play since Hurricane Matthew destroyed his family's Panama City home.

The announced attendance (67,274) seemed generous for a sparse homecoming crowd. While opposing fans cracked jokes on Twitter, I wonder how much Hurricane Matthew dented the crowd.

QB Deondre Francois delivered another solid effort (29-of-40 passing, 353 yards and two touchdowns). Imagine how he'd do if he didn't have opposing linemen in his face on almost every snap.
