NC State has been dwarfing opponents dating back to last season, with the Wolfpack sporting a 7-1 record both SU and ATS in their past eight games. NC State will visit the struggling Virginia Tech Hokies on Friday night with a chance to rebound from last week’s loss to Louisville.
- NC State is 0-8 SU in its last eight games in October.
- Virginia Tech is 2-7 ATS in their past nine games at home.
- NC State RB Matthew Dayes is second in the country with 10 rushing TDs this season.
The consistency of quarterback Jacoby Brissett has gone a long way to NC State’s impressive play, with the senior signal caller throwing 11 touchdowns and no interceptions in the Wolfpack’s past eight contests.
One of the Hokies biggest issues so far this season has been their rushing defense. Virginia Tech is allowing an average of 197.4 rushing yards per game, which has them ranked in the bottom fifth in the country.
