Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Wake Forest vs Duke

Rival Team: Duke Blue Devils

The rivalry between Wake Forest and Duke may get overshadowed by the Blue Devil’s rivalry with the Tar Heels, but the Duke-Wake Forest rivalry is actually the older of the two. It dates back to the 1905-06 season and has been going strong ever since. If you’re looking to attending a great matchup, then there are few better than a Wake Forest-Duke game.

Wake Forest vs North Carolina

Rival Team: UNC Tar Heels

Like the Demon Deacons rivalries with the other two Tobacco Road schools, there is no love lost when Wake Forest and North Carolina play. There are a lot of bragging rights on the line when the two nearby schools meet, so if you want to see the The Joel buzz then get tickets to a Wake Forest-North Carolina game.

Wake Forest vs NC State

Rival Team: NC State Wolfpack

Similar to the other Tobacco Road schools, Wake Forest has a rivalry with nearby NC State as well. The proximity and familiarity between the two teams ignite the rivalry making it a matchup between the two quite the sight to behold and things can get quite intense when both schools are on top of their game, so make sure to be in attendance when State comes to town.
