NC State left Boston last week with a hard earned and much needed - even if it was ugly - win. The Wolfpack hit the road again this week, on a bus this time, heading to Winston-Salem to take on the 6-4 and way-better-than-their-record-indicates Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Can the Pack get the win at BB&T Field and move to 6-1 in the ACC (the most conference wins for State since 1994)?
