Wake's Skinner cleared to play at Georgia Tech

Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner has been cleared to play Saturday when the Deacons visit 11th-ranked Georgia Tech for a 3:30 p.m. game.

Skinner, who will start his 33rd consecutive game, suffered a slight concussion when he was tackled in the fourth quarter of Wake Forest's loss to Miami last Saturday.

He did not practice on Monday, did limited work on Tuesday and gradually worked back into a regular schedule during the week.
