NC State doesn't need to beat Florida State today for all of us to feel better about this Wolfpack team, though it would really help a lot. I mean a lot a lot. Starting the year off 4-0 was one small slice of progress, and a more competitive effort against Florida State would be another.
Terrible reality will probably set in at some point; still, this is college football we're talkin' about here, so if the game happens to be tight heading into the fourth quarter, never underestimate the chances of things taking a turn for the weird. I know if it does happen to be close late, I'll be thinking, "okay, football gods, let's get weird all up in this general vicinity."
Never know when they might be listening.
Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET (Sean McDonough, Chris Spielman, Todd McShay)
TV: ABC/ESPN2 (Based on this, the game will be on ABC locally while the B1G matchup is aired on ESPN2.)
