The 2020 ACC football schedule is here. NC State will begin the season with a road trip to Louisville, which definitely beats a road trip to Clemson, as many had feared would be the first game. The opener against the Cardinals is on a Thursday night.
Beginning the year with a Thursday game does give the Wolfpack some extra time to prepare for Mississippi State in week two, but who knows what the Bulldogs will look like now that Mike Leach is running the show there.
After spending two of the first three games on the road, NC State will be at home for three straight games, and that’ll be an important stretch with Florida State and Duke (hey, remember Duke?) coming to town. The Pack doesn’t get a bye week until Oct. 24, so we’d better hope the injury bug doesn’t hit so hard this year.
State will host Liberty the week before the UNC game, which is on the Friday after Thanksgiving this year.
No kickoff times or television coverage have been announced yet.
