Assistant Sports Editor Tristan Tucker looks at ACC football as a whole and shows his prediction for standings. Clemson and Notre Dame are obvious contenders, but some other teams might be able to slide to the top.
The NC State football team (4-6, 1-5 ACC) took on the Louisville Cardinals (6-4, 4-3 ACC) in its second consecutive Saturday night game inside Carter-Finley Stadium in a 34-20 losing effort. The Pack held its own in the first half, owning a 10-7 lead at the break. However, the high-flying Cardinals offense proved to be too much for the hurt Wolfpack defense.
The NC State defense has allowed 99 points in its last two games, against Wake Forest and Clemson, and has allowed 219 points in its five losses this season, with only 84 points scored in those games. In what seems like a must-win for the Pack, which needs to win two of its next three games to qualify for a bowl game, the defense must step up to expectations against a Cardinals offense that has outperformed the Pack’s this season.
