We have reached week seven of the college football season and most matchups this week are conference showdowns.
In this game the Syracuse Orange make the trip to Raleigh to take on the North Carolina State Wolfpack. The home team has won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Syracuse Orange come into this game one game above .500 but they haven’t beaten a Power Five team yet, and there are questions about how good this team really is.
In their two games against Power Five opponents, they scored 26 points total while giving up more than 100 of them and that defense is going to need to be a lot better.
At quarterback the Orange are led by Tommy Devito who has been up and down and he is a key to have success in this game. So far this year he has thrown for 1,234 yards, 11 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
On the defensive side of the ball the defense is going to need to be a lot better, especially early on. The two losses they fell behind early and they couldn’t crawl back into the game.
IF they want to have a chance in this game they need to get out to a fast start, and play better on the defensive side of the ball.
NC State Wolfpack
On the other side of this matchup is the NC State Wolfpack who much like Syracuse have looked good against non-power five schools, but when they play against the big schools, they have struggled.
In their last game they took on a Florida State team that hasn’t been great and the offense struggled scoring only 13 points.
This has been a run first team and when the run game hasn’t worked, they have had a ton of trouble moving the ball down the field.
At quarterback it’s Matthew McKay who has thrown for 910 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. In this game it’s all going to be about finishing drives.
If they struggle to get the ball in the end zone and finish with field goals, they are going to have issues winning this game.
