NC State comes off their second bye week of the season to head to Winston-Salem to take on a Wake Forest club also coming off a bye week. The Demon Deacons have been solid all year, and feature a daunting passing attack. The Wolfpack, meanwhile, are turning to their third starting QB of the season in hopes of sparking a passing attack of their own.
Can NC State go into BB&T Field with a first-time starting signal-caller and come away with the win? Or will Wake Forest continue to destroy Wolfpack hopes and dreams?
