Wake Forest officials are investigating how materials with information pertaining to the team’s game plan for last Saturday’s football game against Louisville landed in the Cardinal’s hands.

Demon Deacons athletic director Ron Wellman first learned of the possible breach last Friday, one day before Wake Forest lost to the fifth-ranked Cardinals 44-12, the Winston-Salem Journal reports. Wellman said one of the team’s traveling party members discovered the documents at Louisville’s Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,’’ coach Dave Clawson said Tuesday. “I have shared it with Ron Wellman, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure all of our information and data is more secure moving forward.’’

Wake Forest, who currently sits at 6-4, is fourth in the ACC’s Atlantic Division.
