This is a matchup of strength vs. strength, as North Carolina’s high-scoring offense goes up against NC State’s lockdown defense. The Wolfpack have been moving the ball well in recent games, and should put up enough points to help out their defense. NC State is the home team and ranked. It’s hard to pick against the Wolfpack here
