Wake Forest Investigating "Docu-Gate"

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Wake Forest says it has begun an internal investigation after documents related to the team's game plan for playing No. 3 Louisville were found at the Cardinals' stadium.

Athletic director Ron Wellman said in a statement Wednesday that he notified Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford and Louisville AD Tom Jurich after the documents were discovered by a member of the school's travel party.

Speaking on the ACC's weekly media teleconference, coach Dave Clawson did not accuse Louisville of taking the information and when asked if it affected the outcome of the game responded, "I'm not going there." The Cardinals won 44-12.

Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement he has "no knowledge of the situation," and that his philosophy "has always been to play the game with sportsmanship."
