WINSTON-SALEM -- This started nothing like the greatest day of Wake Forest wide receiver Chris Givens’ college-football career.
Hacking and wheezing constantly, he’d kept his roommate up all night. He awoke with a splitting headache, and by kickoff against Maryland, “I couldn’t run two plays without being out of breath.’’
And yet Givens was the Deacon who sucked all the air out of Maryland. He finished with career-best 191 yards off eight catches, including a 35-yard touchdown in the second half of a 31-10 blowout at BB&T Field.
