This week is the only gimme on NC State’s schedule, it appears, so we’ll have to enjoy it while we can. The Wolfpack opened up as a three-score favorite to beat Georgia State, and the line has gotten a bit larger since then. The over/under for the game is at 58 right now.
GSU opened its season with a narrow 24-20 win over FCS Kennesaw State. Kennesaw is a pretty good FCS team, but still, that wasn’t the most encouraging start to the year for the Panthers, who managed just 4.8 yards per play in the contest. KSU out-gained Georgia State by 67 yards.
That bodes poorly for week two, since I’m going to venture a guess that the Panthers will need more than 24 points to win. Most likely, they’re in for a rough day in Raleigh.
