The Wolfpack proved last week that their 4-1 start was pretty hollow, losing to Louisville.
Both teams are 0-1 in the conference so this game is very meaningful, dropping to 0-2 is tough to recover from.
Virginia Tech has won the last three in a row, covering each time.
The result of their game against Louisville on Saturday was no surprise as NC State was one of the most fraudulent undefeated teams in the country.
Still you thought they would do better in front of their home fans.
NC State is now in a tough spot though because they are likely to be 0-2 in the conference after this one. It looks like another season of mediocrity in Raleigh.
Speaking of mediocre.
That is what Jacoby Brissett was against the Cardinals. He has still yet to throw an interception this season but last week, against real competition, he wasn’t good enough. The team is not good enough overall for them to win when he is average.
The defense was solid last week at home, giving up just 20 points, in fact they have not given up more than 21 in an game this season.
Those numbers are better than expected and I would expect them to creep up over the second half of the season.
NC State, even with the loss, still might be getting more respect than they deserve for this road game.
If you like them you probably want to wait on the number.
Things need to get better down in Blacksburg. After being competitive against the defending champs in the opener they have not been playing all that well, especially in back to back losses against East Carolina and Pittsburgh.
In the two losses they have struggled in opposite ways. Against ECU they couldn’t slow down the Pirates while Pitt held them to just 13 points.
After a few solid games backups QB Brenden Motley was terrible last week against Pitt with three interception.
The Hokies are not expecting Michael Brewer back til next month so they need to get Motley back on track.
Speaking of getting back on track, the Hokies are ranked 102 in rush defense.
That is very uncharacteristic of this group and has to change if they want to start winning again.
