10th meeting. 5–4–1 all time. Last meeting 1945, 53–9 Demon Deacons in Wake Forest.

Wake Forest and Presbyterian kicked off the college football season on a Thursday night at BB&T Field. The Deacons started out quickly with a Ted Stachitis touchdown run, as he would be the first of five Wake Forest players to score rushing touchdowns. Alex Frye added an interception return touchdown to make it a 21-0 score after the first quarter. Presbyterian got on the board in the second quarter on a trick play, but Josh Harris scored his first collegiate touchdown two minutes later for a 35-7 halftime lead. The Deacs added two more rushing touchdowns in the second half, en route to over 400 yards rushing and a 53-13 win.[16]

91st meeting. 35–53–2 all time. Last meeting 2009, 45–34 Demon Deacons in Durham. Heading into this game, Wake Forest has won 10 straight against Duke.

Wake Forest and Duke opened the 2010 ACC football season with an offensive explosion. Each team found the end zone five times in the first half on the ground, in the air, and even on special teams. Duke quarterback Sean Renfree threw four touchdowns, 3 in the first half. Wake got three touchdown passes from true freshman Tanner Price, as well as one from wide receiver Marshall Williams, who threw and caught two touchdowns in the game. After a 49 point second quarter, the teams combined for only 9 in the third, but a Price to Williams touchdown pass in the third gave Wake a lead they would not relinquish, as they beat Duke for the 11th consecutive time.[17]

2nd meeting. 1–0 all time. Last meeting 2009, 24–17 Demon Deacons in Winston-Salem. Return game in two-game home and away series with Stanford. Stanford traveled to Wake Forest in 2009

After a long trip out west, Wake Forest was not able to stand the Stanford offensive onslaught. The Cardinal scored touchdowns on their first eight possessions, including all six in the first half. Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck picked apart the Deacs with four touchdown passes, as well as a 52 yard touchdown run. The Deacons scored three rushing touchdowns, one each from Chris Givens, Tanner Price, and Michael Campanaro. It was Campanaro's first collegiate touchdown.[18]

For the second consecutive week, Wake Forest was beaten by a large margin on the road. Christian Ponder threw two touchdown passes, which was more than enough for the Seminoles defense, who shut out the Deacs and allowed only 185 yards of total offense. Ponder added a rushing touchdown, and backup quarterback E.J. Manuel added a touchdown pass as well. The Deacons were shut out for the first time since 2008.[19]

The Deacons led 17-6 heading into the fourth quarter, but Josh Nesbitt led Georgia Tech back into the game, culminating in a nine yard touchdown pass to Correy Earls with only fifteen seconds left. Brandon Pendergrass and Josh Adams had touchdown runs for the Deacons, who played much of the game with reserve quarterback Skylar Jones after injuries claimed starting quarterback Ted Stachitas and backup Brendan Cross. The loss was the Deacons third straight, and second straight close loss to Georgia Tech.[20]

For the second consecutive week, Wake Forest allowed a last minute touchdown which led to a loss.

The Demon Deacons' slide continued, as they dropped their fifth straight game, this time to Virginia Tech. The Hokies scored 49 first half points en route to a lopsided result. The bright spot for Wake came from freshman running back Josh Harris, who ran for 241 yards and 2 touchdowns. It was the most yards ever allowed to a player by Virginia Tech. Tanner Price found Chris Givens for a 78 yard touchdown, but that was the bright spot in an otherwise forgettable day for the freshman quarterback.[22]
