CLEMSON, S.C. -- Jeff Teague thinks his coach should lighten up with talk of record-setting achievements and history-making wins.Then again, it's hard for Wake Forest coach Dino Gaudio to stay calm with what his team has already accomplished.The latest came Saturday when the Demon Deacons (No. 3 ESPN/USA Today, No. 2 AP) set a school mark by starting the season 16-0, handing Clemson (No. 9, No. 10) its first loss of the season, 78-68.
• Wake Forest starts 16-0 for the first time in school history, besting its previous best start of 15-0 in 1926-27.
• The Demon Deacons have won eight of 10 games against Clemson.
• The loss snapped an eight-game ACC home win streak for Clemson as the Tigers fell short of matching their best start in school history (17-0).
