The Wolfpack look to bid for an even better bowl game as they get set to take on the Syracuse Orange on Saturday.
NC State sits at 6-4 and comes in off a loss to Florida State where they led 17-7 in the 2nd quarter.
As for Syracuse, they stayed close with #1 Clemson early, but simply couldn’t keep up as the Tigers eventually ran away.
After starting the season at 3-0, the Orange have dropped 7 straight games, but can really build off the 37-27 loss last week to Clemson.
It took Clemson under 2 minutes to score 2 touchdowns and it looked as if Syracuse was going to get ran off the field. However, the Orange battled back and continued to battle in an eventual 10 points loss.
Unfortunately for the Orange, they may be down to their third stringer QB once again come Saturday. 2nd stringer Eric Dungey was injured in the blowout loss to Louisville and is listed as doubtful for this coming Saturday.
Against the Tigers, now starter Zack Mahoney had just 80 passing yards and 76 rush yards and will have just as tough of a time against another top ACC defense. NC State allows just 314.5 yards per game and has shown the ability to stop the run with pretty solid ease.
The Orange racked up 242 yards on the ground, which is what they’ll try to do on Saturday as they look to win the TOP.
NC State will be looking for their first win in front of the home crowd since September when they welcome in the Orange on Saturday.
The Wolfpack are just 2-2 at home this season (2-2 ATS). Their lone two wins came in non conference play when they knocked off Troy and Eastern Kentucky. The two losses for NC State have come against Louisville and Clemson.
The Wolfpack do offer one of the best defenses in the conference. Allowing only 21.1 points per game, NC State is is putting a lot of pressure on the opposing QB.
Defensive end Mike Rose leads the way for the potent defense with 10.5 sacks this season. Overall, the Wolfpack have produced 29 sacks and 73 tackle for loss.
NC State has turned into a one dimensional team with RB Matthew Dayes out. QB Jacoby Brissett has attempted more than 40 passes in 2 of the last 3 Wolfpack games.
