Week six of the college football season continues on Thursday night with two games. One of those games takes place at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh North Carolina.
Two 4-1 teams match up in this one. The Louisville Cardinals make the trip to take on the NC State Wolfpack.
These two teams have faced off seven times in their history and the Cardinals have won six of them including the last three games.
Besides one big slip up against the Clemson Tigers, the Louisville Cardinals have looked really good, although they have been playing a pretty easy schedule the last couple of weeks.
After starting of the season against formidable opponents like the Tar Heels and the Boilermakers they have played a couple of gimmes since playing Clemson, which is probably okay because it has helped build up their confidence.
In their last two games they have played Kent State and Murray State, and they won both games by scoring a total of 97 points while only giving up 13.
For the Cardinals they go wherever Lamar Jackson takes them and that will be the case this entire year. So far this year he has thrown for 1636 yards and 16 touchdowns. He has done a good job of keeping interceptions down too only throwing three of those.
He has also rushed for 437 yards and five touchdowns. To win this game he is probably going to need to have success not only through the air, but also on the ground.
NC State Wolfpack
On the other side of this match up is the NC State Wolfpack, who are one hail mary away from being a 5-0 team.
They started off the season losing to South Carolina who had a hail mary as time expired to win by the final score of 35-28.
Since that point though they have had a couple of real tests and have passed all of them winning the last four games.
The only concerning part of those wins though, is how close they have been. In each of their last two games they have won by eight points or less.
The Wolfpack are led by Junior quarterback Ryan Finley. He comes into this game having thrown for 1403 yards and nine touchdowns.
He also hasn’t had a turnover this year, which has been a big key for the success of this team.
On the defensive side of the ball the Wolfpack haven’t been great, but they have had a bend don’t break type of attitude.
In this game the defense is going to need to step up and try to slow down Lamar Jackson or the offense won’t be able to keep up.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Louisville Cardinals +2.5
I expect both teams will have no issue scoring in this game and that will lead to a very high scoring game.
I think Lamar Jackson is a little more dynamic and that will lead the Cardinals to victory.
