Wake Forest is coming off a shocking loss to Louisville last week in which they allowed the Cardinals to score 35 points in just one quarter and turned the ball over eight times. NC State eked one out over Virginia Tech last weekend after a loss to Syracuse. The loss of starting QB Devin Leary has been a massive blow to the Wolfpack this season.

Wake Forest’s most recent game was turnover insanity, and they’ll be especially careful not to have a repeat this week. NC State has struggled with offensive production ever since losing Leary, and as long as the Louisville game was a fluke, the Deacons are looking much stronger than the Wolfpack at this point in the season.
