Welcome back, football. Now how do I find you? NC State isn’t fortunate enough to have its opener against William & Mary air on network television, but as usual you can find it streaming on WatchESPN.com. I’m guessin’ the production and announcing crews aren’t going to be any better than they have been in the past, but hey, this is better than nothing.
If you’re heading out to Carter-Finley, you’d best bring some rain gear, since it’s looking more and more like we’re going to get some rain during the game. Which is fine since Jaylen Samuels is an all-conditions, all-terrain football vehicle.
Kickoff time: 7:30 p.m. ET
TV: Alas, no.
Online streaming: ACC Network Extra (Note: Unlike in years past, when you go to WatchESPN.com, you will need to select “ACC Network Extra” from the “Network” dropdown that appears near the top of the page. It’s still basically ESPN3, but per the recent network agreement between the ACC and ESPN, it’s now a separately branded “channel” for the league. Progress! Mildly confusing progress.)
Odds: NC State -23
Radio coverage: Wolfpack radio network affiliates
