Having been crushed by the Seminole aerial attack this past Saturday, the Blue Devils need to watch junior wide receiver Chris Givens Saturday in their contest against Wake Forest.
Entering his junior season, Givens finds himself with an impressive 80 career receptions for a total of 1.143 yards and 12 touchdowns. Givens has led the Demon Deacons in all-purpose yards for the past two seasons, and is undoubtedly looking to make this his third. Givens also finds himself tied for ninth in career TD passes out of all players in Wake Forest history.
Givens has already earned ACC Player of the Week Honors twice this season—the most recent for his performance against Florida State, the other against Boston College.
In the Demon Deacons’ contest against the Seminoles two weeks ago, Givens made several game winning, explosive plays. Having caught a 22 yard pass for a touch down late in the second quarter, Givens secured Wake Forest the lead at the half. And in the second half, Givens racked up three receptions for 86 yards. Givens was able to keep the Wake Forest offense on the field as four of his six catches marked first down for the Demon Deacons.
