After seeing no action in the backfield in Wake Forest’s first game of the season against Elon, Tate Carney made a resounding running-back debut in Saturday’s 36-20 home win over Vanderbilt. A redshirt freshman who saw a little action on special teams in 2022, Carney went off for 117 yards on 13 carries, including a touchdown and a 74-yard run in which he broke two tackles. The Deacons are 2-0.
