The NC State Wolfpack will face the Virginia Tech Hokies at Lane Stadium on October 9 (8pm, ESPN). Both teams are trying to rebound from losing ACC conference openers at home. Last time the Wolfpack faced the Hokies (in 2010), Tech won.
Wolfpack’s head coach Dave Doeren said this about the VT defense: “They’re great with contact, can run through people and make guys miss. We’ve got to get the ball in space, use our ability to get on the edges in our jets and throw the football. The biggest thing is protection against them.” That said, OddShark reports that “The North Carolina State Wolfpack were listed as 2-point underdogs on the opening NCAA football line.”
