Schedule

Wake Forest's 2019 schedule will begin with four non-conference games: at home against Utah State of the Mountain West Conference, on the road against Rice of Conference USA, at home against North Carolina, and at home against Elon of the Colonial Athletic Association. The game against North Carolina, a fellow member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, is being played as a non-conference game and will therefore not count in the league standings.[2] This was done because the two rivals otherwise only play once every six years due to conference divisional alignment.

In ACC play, Wake Forest will play the other members of the Atlantic Division, as well as Virginia Tech and Duke from the Coastal Division.
