An investigation is underway looking into how some documents regarding the Wake Forest game plan may have ended up in the possession of Louisville before last Saturday's game, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Wake Forest lost the game 44-12. Concern was raised after several members of Wake Forest’s traveling party discovered the documents at the stadium.

“We are concerned that there was some type of security breach,’’ coach Dave Clawson told reporters on 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.”

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino issued the following statement, according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach:

“I have no knowledge of the situation,” Petrino said. “We take a lot of pride in the way we operate our program. As I've stated already this season, my coaching philosophy has always been to play the game with sportsmanship. Right now, our focus is on our game tomorrow at Houston and finishing the 2016 season strong.”

Louisville is now ranked No. 5 in the latest College Football Playoff Rankings.
