The University of Louisville Football squad will travel to Raleigh, NC for a Saturday night contest versus the NC Stat Wolfpack. NC State is 4-5 on the season and currently on a 3-game losing streak. The Wolfpack owns wins over East Carolina, Western Carolina, Syracuse and Ball State and have lost to West Virginia, Florida State, Boston College, Wake Forest and Clemson.

This is a young NC State team that has been impacted by a lot of veteran leaders leaving to the NFL and coaches, like Dwayne Ledford moving on from the program for promotions. NC State is in rebuild mode and their young recruiting class from a year ago is still in development.
