NC State Wolfpack   

The Wolfpack charge into this weekend’s ACC matchup sporting a 5-1 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the ACC – Atlantic division. Right now the Atlantic is led by Clemson, who is undefeated in ACC play this season at 4-0. NC State on the other hand, is sitting on a 2-1 conference record. With that in mind, it’s clear that the Wolfpack need a win over Cuse this weekend if they are to stay on the Tigers’ rear end. Fortunately for NC State, they’ve been very fortunate in their recent matchups against the Orange. In fact, NC State is 6-1 in their last 7 meetings against Syracuse. Ultimately NC State needs all the help they can get this weekend since they’re coming off a humbling 41-7 loss to Clemson this past weekend.

Players to Watch: Ryan Finley (1,777 passing yards, 10 TD, 5 INT), Reggie Gallaspy II (383 rushing yards, 8 TD, 3.9 AVG), and Kelvin Harmon (547 receiving yards, 2 TD, 35 REC).

Syracuse Orange 

Syracuse enters this weekend’s action sporting a 5-2 record that ranks them 4th overall in the ACC – Atlantic. Right now the program has a 2-2 record in ACC play, so they’ve already slipped to far behind Clemson. But unlike NC State, Syracuse didn’t get blown out by Clemson. Granted, they still came out on the losing ends of things 27-23, but they definitely put up a much bigger fight than NC State. If the college football math adds up right, then Syracuse should be the ones coming out on top this Saturday – just like the online NCAA betting odds predict. Furthermore, Syracuse’s stats on the season don’t paint a pretty picture for NC State. Right now the Orange is scoring 42.6 per game, which is superior to the 28.7 that the Wolfpack deliver. Defensively things are more even with NC State allowing 20.8 per game and Syracuse giving up 26.9.

Players to Watch: Eric Dungey (1,433 passing yards, 10 TD, 4 INT), Moe Neal (471 rushing yards, 2 TD, 5.2 AVG), and Jamal Custis (592 receiving yards, 4 TD, 32 REC).
