With bowl hopes now gone, NC State welcomes to Raleigh their rival - and generally loathsome neighbor - UNC-Chapel Hill for a season finale. Hanging in the balance for the Tar Heels is a potential bowl trip under second-time first-year coach Mack Brown, while the Wolfpack are playing for pride and a chance to continue the recent domination in the series between the two programs.

Can the Wolfpack muster the motivation to overcome a down year (as well as the stench from any and all things that come out of Chapel Hill) and pull out a win against that team that invokes involuntary vomiting? Or will the piled up injuries and lack of sustained decent play doom NC State yet again?

Each... errr... A few BTP contributors provide their score predictions below, plus a quick blurb on their predicted outcome. Here we go!
