BOONE, N.C. (AP) Quarterback John Wolford figured Wake Forest had lost its chance to escape the mountains with a win over Appalachian State when the Deacons jumped offside on a late field goal attempt.
But Wolford's doom turned to glee when teammate Scotty Washington got a hand on Michael Rubino's 39-yard field goal attempt with five seconds remaining, allowing the Demon Deacons to remain unbeaten with 20-19 win in a wild game that featured six lead changes.
"When we jumped offside I got a little negative," Wolford admitted. "Like, he's going to miss two in a row? What are the odds of that? But Scotty came up huge. Football is a crazy game. You win games in different ways."
