NC State returns home on Saturday evening to face Old Dominion, no doubt ready to put the East Carolina game in the rear-view mirror. The Wolfpack is favored to beat ODU by more than three touchdowns, so if all goes well this will be a comfortable win that sees the return of Jalan McClendon at quarterback.
This is the last NC State game of the 2016 season that will not be televised by a proper network. (For better or worse.) Fans not attending the game will have to endure the ESPN3 treatment one last time, but maybe those folks have learned Matt Dayes’ name by now.
Both State and ODU are coming off losses, and both have key players banged up—in State’s case, it’s Nyheim Hines; in ODU’s, it’s running back Ray Lawry.
