The NC State Wolfpack are travelling to Death Valley to take on the #3 Clemson Tigers this Saturday. This ACC battle should be an interesting matchup, despite the fact that the Tigers are heavy favorites.
Both teams are on winning streaks, with NC State winning their last three and Clemson undefeated on the year.
This one could have big implications for the ACC, and thus for the CFB Playoff picture.
North Carolina State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack came out with a win at home last week during what was basically a typhoon.
A victory against Notre Dame would have looked like a huge marquis victory earlier in the year, but they have fallen off the map in a big way.
Now the Wolfpack have one of the toughest two weeks in football coming up, with at #3 Clemson this week and at #7 Louisville the next.
NC State has won games mostly because of their defense so far.
The Wolfpack D is ranked 17th in the nation in scoring, allowing only 17.6 points per game.
This will certainly be their biggest test so far, because they have yet to face a quarterback nearly as good as Deshaun Watson.
The offense has been average at best, but they do have a solid running game led by senior running back Matthew Dayes.
It has been National Championship or bust for the Tigers all year.
They have no reason to expect otherwise, but had some questionable games early.
However, they got things on track and played what I believe to be the best game of the year so far against #7 Louisville two weeks ago, winning 42-36.
They blew out Boston College 56-10 on the road last week and look like the team we expected at the beginning of the year.
There is not much I could say about junior quarterback Deshuan Watson that hasn’t been said already.
He’s one of the best in the nation, throwing for 1.569 yards and 18 touchdowns through their first six games.
The defense may be even better, allowing only 15 points per game which is 8th in the country.

Free Week 7 NCAA Football Prediction
North Carolina State has been impressive this year, particularly on defense, but aside from an overrated Notre Dame team, they haven’t really played anyone yet.
Their four wins have come against William and Mary, East Carolina, Old Dominion and Wake Forest.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Clemson -17
Clemson looks like a team that can compete for the National Championship again this year. Many people believed they locked up the ACC (and thus, a spot in the playoffs) when they beat Louisville.
They go on the road to face Florida State after this game, so if they win these next two, they’re almost certainly going to the playoffs. They know that; they will not disappoint this week.
