So things for the NC State football team haven’t been going so hot as of late, but the Wolfpack look to get back on the right track as they gear up for the finishing kick to the season, starting with a Saturday night home match-up against a resurgent Louisville squad.

The Cardinals have surpassed expectations under first-year head coach (and former Appalachian State head dude) Scott Satterfield. The real change for this Louisville team has come on the offensive side of the ball, where they are directed by former NC State Offensive Line Coach Dwayne Ledford.

Can NC State’s offense finally get things moving against what has been a fairly poor Louisville defense and propel the team to victory? Or will the Cardinals offense take advantage of an injury-depleted Wolfpack defense and head back to Kentucky with the win?
