NC State returns to Carter-Finley for the first time since its win over Notre Dame in the midst of Hurricane Matthew. In the weeks since, State’s grounds crew has been hard at work re-seeding the field and getting it back into playing condition.
The field should be no worse for wear on Saturday, which is probably bad news for Boston College, which could use some random terrible weather, y’know, pretty much every week. At least its offense wouldn’t look so bad by comparison.
In pristine weather conditions, the Eagles’ odds are not so good. NC State is favored by more than two touchdowns to win this game, which would be the Wolfpack’s fifth win of the season. If State can take care of business, I think we can begin to safely assume the team will get to bowl eligibility this year.
