college football world reacts to wake forest-army score
© Provided by The Comeback

Who knew that Saturday’s wildest game would end up being the one involving the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and Army Black Knights?

We hope you took the over because the two sides combined to score 126 points in Wake’s 70-56 victory. And just in case you’re wondering, the over was 52.5, which both teams topped on their own.

This Wake Forest-Army second half is insane.

Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman finished with 458 passing yards and five touchdowns with wide receiver Jaquarii Roberson garnering 157 of those yards and three of those scores. For Army, it was more of a ground attack, with three different running backs rushing for over 90 yards.

Each team scored at least 14 points in every quarter except for Army’s first quarter. Wake ended up scoring 21 points in both the third and fourth quarters. The point is…there was a lot of scoring.

Absolute insanity. pic.twitter.com/M02bGrgz9n

It’s only the second time that Army has ever given up 70 points, which is quite something given the school’s long history.

For the Deacs, it’s a statement victory as they move to 7-0 on the season and are clear favorites in the ACC, which is quite the thing to say and write.

Social media was full of opinions about the wildest and highest-scoring game of the day. From the astounding factoids to the insane scores, everyone had something to share.

Army has 21 points at halftime against No. 16 Wake Forest. Army hasn’t scored more than 21 points against a ranked team since 1998 vs. Tulane

Wake Forest defeats Army, 70-56.

No, this is not a college basketball game.

— Andrew Hammond (@ahammFreePress) October 23, 2021

I don’t even have to look it up, I would bet that Army hasn’t lost a game where they scored more than 40 points in about 100 years.

Good game vs Wake. A @RossTuckerNFL special.

All hail Wake Forest, we guess.
