BTP Pregame Predictions: Louisville

So how’s this thing gonna go? Hopefully with a win

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

Apologies for being later than normal in getting this up. On a family vacation, so, you know, stuff. Anyways, here we go...

NC State travels to Louisville this week to take on the newly liberated Cardinals, who cut the ties with two-time coach Bobby Petrino earlier this week. On paper, this would appear to be an easy win for the Wolfpack, but the team is coming off a horribly disappointing home loss to Wake Forest a week ago.

Can the Wolfpack go on the road and get things back on track for the final leg of the regular season? Or will the Cardinals come together under interim leadership to notch their first ACC win of the season?

Each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a “classic” Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Let’s get to it!
