We have reached week nine of the college football season which means most games are conference showdowns. That is the case in this game when the Syracuse Orange and the NC State Wolfpack face off at the Carrier Dome.
The Wolfpack have won the last four games played between the two teams.
NC State Wolfpack
The NC State Wolfpack were having a really nice season but last weekend they ran into a wall called the Clemson Tigers and it was ugly.
The defense really struggled and the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 41-7 defeat. This Wolfpack team has had a good defense all season but against the Tigers they couldn’t get it going and they need to figure it out going into this game.
On the offensive side, for the most part, the Wolfpack have been okay. The Wolfpack are led by Ryan Finley who has thrown for 1777 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions.
In this game they need to have a few things happen. The offense needs to get out to a fast start but the defense needs to play better than they did against Clemson.
If the defense is better they will have a chance in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Syracuse Orange who have had an up and down season and really seem to play down to competition.
They took on the Tar Heels in the last game and were 9.5 point favorites but it took till overtime before they came out ahead 40-37.
The Orange are led at quarterback by Eric Dungey who has been really good throwing for 1433 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.
Dungey has stayed healthy and that is a big reason for his success.
To win this game the offense needs to get out to the fast start. If the offense struggles in this game they will have zero chance because their defense isn’t good enough.
They need this game to be a shootout if they want to a chance in this game.
