So how’s this thing gonna go? Can State best the Fightin’ Dudes on the road?

NCAA Football: Boston College at North Carolina State Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off back-to-back games against two of the top four ranked teams in the country, the Wolfpack head north to play Boston College in front of what is sure to be tens, if not dozens, of fans. Can State put the past two weeks behind them and take down what is a suddenly hot BC team?

As per normal, each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Let’s get to it!
