I have to admit that I didn’t realized that NC State had run their record to 4-1 coming into this one. How good are they though?
North Carolina is looking to rebound from a terrible game against Florida State.
The Wolfpack have been catching opponents by surprise but that seems unlikely in this one.
NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack have been outplaying expectations this season. Their offense has been good and that has helped them win at Pitt and UVA on the way to a three-game winning streak.
QB Devin Leary got hurt last week though and will be out til December. Now they have to rely on Bailey Hockman, a one-time FSU recruit to keep things going.
NC State had been having success but it is not like they have a dominant run game or defense to take the pressure off a new quarterback.
That defense has given been giving up successively lower points the last three weeks, but North Carolina will be the best offense it has faced.
Bein efficient on offense may be their best weapon against their rival.
North Carolina Tar Heels
It took a while for the Tar Heels to wake up last week, so long it cost them the game against Florida State. They were down 31-7 at halftime and then ran out of time.
UNC will be kicking themselves because they bested FSU in yards by more than 100 and controlled the clock. You are supposed to win those games.
Even though the Tar Heels moved the ball the UNC defense was pretty easy to get through. They gave up more than 400 yards of offense. FSU ran for more than 240 yards.
Last week’s game showed that UNC is not quite ready to take that next step. I still like them a lot at home in this contest.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UNC ATS
I am expecting the North Carolina offense to be able to get what they want in this matchup, especially running the ball.
Combine that with a normal to good start at home and it looks like an easy cover. I am not convinced by anything NC State has shown and they have a new quarterback that they are relying on too.
