A pair of 1-1 teams meet on Saturday evening as the Old Dominion Monarchs head to NC State to take on the Wolfpack.
Both teams will look to avenge their Week 2 losses here, with the Wolfpack opening as big favorites at home.
Old Dominion Monarchs
The Monarchs enter this one with a lot of confidence despite falling 31-7 last week to Appalachian State.
Old Dominion has given the Wolfpack fits over the past two meetings, one of which includes a 46-34 loss in 2014 where they had their chances in the 2nd half.
Ray Lawry has been the highlight of this offense, rushing for 100 yards in back to back games to start the season. Lawry has also found the end zone twice.
Expect him to be a big part of this game as the Monarchs offense only goes when he seems to go.
Defensively, a player to watch will be LB Anthony Wilson. He set a team record with 3 sacks last week against Appalachian State, which was one of the only highlights the Monarchs defense had in the loss.
NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack endured a very painful loss in Week 2 and will now look to rebound here against the Monarchs.
The Wolfpack went back and forth all night long with the East Carolina Pirates, but their final drive ended in ECU territory as time expired.
While the games were close over the last two meetings with Old Dominion, the Wolfpack would like to repeat their offensive play.
Combined, NC State had 500 yards on the ground and found the end zone 8 times.
Dating back to last season, the run game has been the backbone to this team. Counting the 2 games this year, the Wolfpack have rushed for over 200 yards 5 straight times.
Look for them to try and establish that early on here as they try to wear down Old Dominion.
