Wake Forest comfortably beat Boston College 43-15 after quarterback Sam Hartman had six straight touchdowns. The redshirt teen completed 25 of 40 passes for 313 yards and five points — a sixth TD from a two-yard scramble.
“When we play well, you’re happy,” Hartman said after the game. “When you’re performing at a high level, like we’ve been doing for the past few weeks, it’s more fun. I’m sitting in a chair and watching people celebrate. It’s so touching to see the smiles on these guys’ faces.”
While Hartman’s numbers are impressive, he hasn’t always been with the rest of college football’s top quarterbacks.

“He’s a very, very good quarterback,” Wake Forest Team head coach Dave Clausen added. “I think it’s funny that he doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Last year, he was the all-ACC second-team quarterback. The first-team guy was drafted and somehow he came into the season and became some guy in the ACC. The fifth-best quarterback in the country. That’s so disrespectful to what he’s done and what he’s accomplished.”
“I’d rather not have another quarterback in this country,” Clausen continued. “I think he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the country. How the Heisman thing doesn’t mention him — look at what he’s done in his career and what he’s done this year. The beauty of Sam is that he even Don’t care. He just wants to win.”
Now, Wake Forest is 6-1 and qualified for the Bowl before early November.
“It’s so cool to be a part of it,” Hartman said. “It’s trying to remind young people that it’s not normal, it’s not always the case.”
