With an impressive defensive effort leading the way in a win over Texas Tech last Saturday evening, the Wolfpack remain in the comfy confines of Carter-Finley Stadium this week as they welcome the UConn Huskies to town for another Saturday night kickoff. While the win over the Red Raiders was solid, it still left questions surrounding the NC State offense.
UConn, meanwhile, is having a rough start to Jim Mora’s first season leading the football program. The Huskies are 1-3 overall with their lone win coming against in-state FCS foe Central Connecticut State. The Huskies have allowed an average of 46 points per game to FBS opponents this year, while their offense has been beset with injuries in key positions.
Will the Wolfpack keep the good times rolling and head to Clemson next week undefeated? Or will UConn pull off a major upset and notch their first signature win under Mora?
