Wake Forest wins record-setting shootout with Texas A&M

So it didn’t reach the 125 points that Marshall and East Carolina combined for in the 2001 GMAC bowl, Wake Forest helped to do a number on its own postseason records, career records, and that of the Belk Bowl.

Here’s a sampling:

The teams’ 76 points at halftime were more than any bowl game this season and they finished to obliterate the previous Belk record of 82 points that Cincinnati and Duke set in 2012.

Meanwhile, John Wolford earned game MVP honors in throwing for 400 yards — breaking the game record of 380 set by Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott in 2015 vs. NC State — and both the Wake Forest QB and his Aggies counterpart, Nick Starkel, tied the Belk record of four TDs that’s shared by Prescott and Cincinnati’s Brendon Kay from 2012.

Wolford would also break the program’s records for most passing yards and touchdowns in a season and, both of which were earned by Riley Skinner in 2009 at 3,160 and 26, respectively. Wolford finished with 3,192 yards and 29 scores.

Speaking of Wolford, it’s time we have a true appreciation of the mark he leaves in Winston-Salem.
