#23 Wake Forest-Vanderbilt Live (9/10): How to Watch Online, TV, Time

The No. 23 Wake Forest will travel to Nashville on Saturday, September 10 to face Vanderbilt. The game will be streamed live on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (live stream).

The Demon Deacons (1-0) beat VMI last week with quarterback Sam Hartman out due to a blood clot near his collarbone that sidelined him indefinitely, leaving Mitch Griffis to claim victory in his first start in career. But the school announced on Tuesday that Hartman had been medically cleared to return and was back at the top of the depth chart for the trip to face the Commodores (2-0), enough to tip the point spread. .

Hartman guided the Demon Deacons to 11 wins and a trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game last year, leading an offense that ranked among the best in the Bowl Subdivision ranks. Hartman’s play was also a big reason why Wake Forest also made the top 10 of the AP Top 25 last year.

The Commodores, with a 2-0 start for the first time since 2018, beat Hawaii 63-10 in their opener. But coach Clark Lea wasn’t happy with how his Commodores finished last week’s 42-31 win over Elon and sees that as another area for growth.

When is Wake Forest-Vanderbilt?

Vanderbilt plays at Wake Forest at 11 a.m. (noon ET) on Saturday, September 10.

Insight

DURABLE STRETCH: This begins a tough time for Vanderbilt leading into the Southeastern Conference game.

The Commodores are the only FBS team scheduled to play three consecutive games against teams that played for their conference title last season. Next up is a game against defending Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois before opening the championship game against No. 1 Alabama.

Vanderbilt is among 11 teams with at least five preseason AP Top 25 opponents.

VANDERBILT OFFENSIVE: Having a game in hand over the rest of the SEC certainly helps, but Vanderbilt currently leads the league in averaging 512.5 total yards while ranking third with 52.5 points.

Vanderbilt scored 105 points, which he didn’t reach until the second quarter of his eighth game last season. The Commodores have scored 42 points in consecutive games for the first time since 2005.

Third-year quarterback Mike Wright, named the starter at SEC media days in July, was key. He’s already combined for 10 touchdowns, surpassing the nine he scored last season.

THE RETURN OF SMENDA: Smenda didn’t play last week because he was serving a one-game suspension after earning his third targeting call last year in the Gator Bowl victory over Rutgers. The fifth-year linebacker will make his season debut in this one and entered the year as the team’s career leading tackle (238).

STRIATED GOLDEN: Lea’s specialty before being hired by her alma mater was defense, and the Commodores have landed at least one takeaway in 11 straight games since last season. They now have 12 interceptions with six fumbles recovered in that span. Three fumbles were recovered combined in the first two games.

PENALTY WATCH: Clawson was clearly angered by the “horrendous” Game 1 penalties against VMI, which included flags that nullified an offensive and defensive touchdown. Wake Forest finished with seven penalties for 69 yards.

“In many ways, it’s a perfect opener,” Clawson said of the win over the Championship Subdivision Keydets. “We won the game and we had to play against a lot of different people. And yet, there were a lot of teachable moments that we need to correct as we increase the level of play.”
