Louisville 62, Wake Forest 59

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Evan Conley ran 41 yards for a critical touchdown with 2:15 remaining, and Louisville held off Wake Forest's late rally to upset the 19th-ranked Demon Deacons 62-59 in the second-highest-scoring game in Atlantic Coast Conference history.

Conley also threw two touchdown passes to Dez Fitzpatrick and Hassan Hall returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score to help the Cardinals (4-2, 2-1) spoil Wake Forest's first national ranking in 11 years.

The combined 121 points was second only to the 137 scored in Pittsburgh's 76-61 victory over Syracuse in 2016. The teams combined for 1,188 total yards in this one.

Wake Forest (5-1, 1-1) trailed 52-31 with less than 6 1/2 minutes remaining before rallying, with backup Sam Hartman - the starter for most of 2018 - throwing two touchdown passes in 35 seconds. He hit Scotty Washington from 22 yards before his 21-yarder with 3:37 left to Jack Freudenthal - who recovered the onside kick that set up his scoring catch.

Conley took a fourth-and-1 keeper 41 yards for a touchdown to give the Cardinals a 62-52 lead with 2:52 remaining - plenty of time for the Demon Deacons to counter, with Hartman leading them 92 yards in seven plays and scoring on a 1-yard keeper with 1:10 remaining.

The onside kick squirted downfield, Tutu Atwell came away with it in a pileup with 1:05 left and the Cardinals ran out the clock to seal their first big victory under new coach Scott Satterfield.

Micale Cunningham threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to Seth Dawkins and a 9-yarder to Atwell before leaving in the second quarter with an injury. Conley took over and finished 12 of 18 for 196 yards with touchdowns of 15 and 50 yards to Dez Fitzpatrick.

Jamie Newman threw three touchdown passes to Sage Surratt - covering 12, 3 and 47 yards - and finished 24 of 41 for 251 yards, but was intercepted twice.
