09/10/2012 - QB Tanner Price is in line to reach the 5,000-yard passing mark for a career when the Demon Deacons play the third game of his junior season at Florida State. Price has 4,888 career yards through the air after his single-game high of 327 against North Carolina.
09/08/2012 - Tanner Price scored on a 1-yard sneak with 2:09 left to help Wake Forest rally past North Carolina 28-27 on Saturday in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams. Price threw for a career-high 327 yards for the Demon Deacons (2-0, 1-0), who struggled to generate much offense throughout the second half until the decisive drive. Starting from Wake Forest's own 7-yard line, Price calmly directed an 11-play, 93-yard scoring drive that ended when he pushed his way through the right side of the line for the go-ahead score. Bryn Renner had two final chances to bring back the Tar Heels (1-1, 0-1), but he threw a fourth-down interception with 1:25 left that let the Demon Deacons melt most of the clock. He got the ball back at his own 1 with 17 seconds and no timeouts, but reached only the 40 before his final desperation heave was knocked away. While Price was steady in the clutch, his top target -- receiver Michael Campanaro -- had his way with the Tar Heels' secondary all afternoon. Campanaro finished with career-best totals of 13 catches for 164 yards, including a 15-yarder on the drive to the go-ahead score. - AP Sports
09/06/2012 - It didn't go close to script for the Demon Deacons in the opener, but by rallying to defeat Liberty, there could be some eventual benefits from the test against a Football Championship Subdivision team. "We faced a scare, but it was good to get a win," coach Jim Grobe said of the 20-17 home triumph. The next assignment figures to be stiffer, with North Carolina arriving for an ACC opener. That's why there's an unsettling feeling after the season opener. "It was scary and shaky at times," nose guard Nikita Whitlock said. It might be better to be exposed in a game that they were capable of winning, the Demon Deacons said. "There are a lot of things that we're going to look back on and wish we could get back," quarterback Tanner Price said. "We're going to look at the tape, make improvements and move on." - The Sports Xchange

06/25/2012 - Top-five Wake Forest prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 5. QB Tanner Price (6-2, 205)...Since 1967, only one Wake Forest quarterback has been drafted (Mike Elkins, 1989), but Price could change that with another season or two of development. After a rough freshman season, the southpaw did a much better job taking care of the football as a sophomore starter last year and showed scouts he is someone worth keeping an eye on for the future. A two-star recruit out of Austin, TX, Price, who attended the same high school as NFL quarterbacks Drew Brees and Nick Foles, chose Wake Forest over offers from Stanford, Rice and Tulsa. He saw action as a true freshman in 2010, starting the final nine game of the season and throwing more interceptions than touchdowns (7-to-8). However, he showed substantial improvement as a sophomore last year, passing for 3,017 yards, 20 touchdowns, six interceptions and a 60.0% completion percentage. Although undersized, Price is an athletic mover with the arm to make accurate throws on the run and deliver catchable passes so his receivers can make plays after the reception. He probably won't be an early round pick, but he showed enough arm talent last season to at least be considered a pro prospect. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/30/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Tanner Price hit at a rapid pace during the first half of the season, but his production has waned for the past month. His statistics have indicated that the big-play strikes that made him such a threat have waned. He started using his legs as a running threat to try to offer a different look and try to generate something at times and that worked to only a limited degree. - The Sports Xchange
