We have reached week five of the college football season which means a lot of conference games. In this one it’s an ACC showdown when the Virginia Cavaliers make the trip to Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh to take on the NC State Wolfpack.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2012 when the Cavaliers came out ahead 33-6.
The Virginia Cavaliers have had a decent start to the season but the only time they were really tested they came away with a loss.
They come into this game off a big win against the Louisville Cardinals in their last game where they gave up only three point.
This is a team that really leans on their defense and this is going to need to be the case again in this one if they want to come out ahead.
The Cavaliers are led at quarterback by Bryce Perkins who has thrown for 867 yards, nine touchdowns, and two interceptions.
To win this game he needs to continue to try and not turn the ball over. If he turns the ball over and makes life difficult on defense they are going to have issues.
NC Stae Wolfpack
On the other side of this matchup is the NC State Wolfpack who also come into this game having played good football but they really haven’t been tested.
In their last game it was their biggest test playing Marshall but when a team like Marshall is your biggest test there has to be some questions.
The Wolfpack are a very good defensive team and are giving up only 13.3 points per game.
The team is led on the offensive end by quarterback Ryan Finley who has thrown for 1056 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.
To win this game the Wolfpack offense need to get out to a fast start. If they can do that and play with a lead they are going to make life tough on the Cavaliers.
