Wake Forest ‘concerned’ Louisville had access to game plan

Lamar Jackson

The Wake Forest football team has reason to believe Louisville had access to the Demon Deacons’ game plan prior to last Saturday’s game.

On Tuesday, Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson revealed that the team is exploring the possibility that there was some sort of “security breach” leading up to the game.

“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,” Clawson said, per Dan Collins of the Winston-Salem Journal. “I have shared it with (athletic director) Ron Wellman, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure all of our information and data is more secure moving forward.”

Wellman said a member of the football team’s traveling party found documents pertaining to Wake Forest’s game plan at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Saturday. He would not elaborate any further or say what information was on the documents.

“Since that time we have been looking at various possibilities and haven’t come up with anything for certain at this point,” Wellman said. “But we will continue to review everything that we do and investigate how this might have happened and make sure it doesn’t happen in the future.”

Interestingly enough, those watching the first half of the game would have thought Wake Forest knew Louisville’s game plan — not the other way around. The Cardinals, who have averaged nearly 50 points per game this season, managed only a field goal in two quarters against Wake Forest and trailed 12-3 at the half. Louisville righted the ship after halftime and ended up winning 44-12.

The decision of Wake Forest officials to go public with their concerns means they believe there’s a chance something serious happened. Heisman Trophy candidate Lamar Jackson is capable of making plays like this without having access to inside information, so it’s unclear if Wake Forest thinks Louisville gained an unfair advantage.
