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?

Each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a quick blurb on their predicted outcome. Here we go!


Prediction: 27-20 (W)

Comment: “This prediction will be wrong, but I’m not ready to accept a world where Wake Forest has passed State in this division. The streak needs to finally end.“


Prediction: 20-34 (L)

Comment: “Nah, man. Just ... nah.“


Prediction: 31-34 (L)

Comment: “The Wolfpack offense is better but it isn’t enough to overcome Wake’s aerial assault.“


Prediction: 21-51 (L)

Comment: “State’s 18th string CBs are eaten alive by Wake’s receivers. Leary plays well but the offense can’t keep up.“


Prediction: 28-42 (L)

Comment: “Predict we will see Hartman, 1st half close but low DB depth lets WF talented WRs son our secondary all 2nd half“
