John Wolford threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter, and Wake Forest rallied to beat Army 24-21 on Saturday.

Wolford twice connected on third-down passes on the decisive drive before finding E.J. Scott over the middle for a 12-yard TD with 6:45 left to put Wake Forest (2-2) ahead to stay.

Isaiah Robinson recorded Wake Forest's first touchdown of the season and the Demon Deacons shut out Army in the second half to beat the Black Knights for the eighth straight time.

Angel Santiago rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown for Army (1-2), but he was stripped by Wendell Dunn and Wake Forest's Tylor Harris recovered the fumble near midfield with under 3 minutes left.
