The Wolfpack go on the road for the first time in the 2018 season, heading to Huntington, WV, to take on the Thundering Herd of Marshall. The Herd may not be as splashiest name on NC State's out-of-conference schedule this year (although maybe they are now - thanks, Hurricane Florence), but they are not a team to be taken lightly. This Marshall team will compete for the C-USA championship and has a legitimate shot at another 10-win campaign under former NC State assistant coach Doc Holliday.
Can State go on the road and capture a win in what is sure to be a hostile and rocking environment?
