Last Time: Louisville marched out to a 17-7 halftime lead on two touchdowns from freshman Lamar Jackson, and held off NC State en route to a 20-13 win in Raleigh. Jackson had 107 yards passing on 10-of-27 passing, but added 121 more on the ground, including a 68-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The Louisville defense held an NC State offense with Jacoby Brissett to 228 total yards.
Louisville leads the all-time series 5-1.
About the NC State Wolfpack
The Wolfpack are led by head coach Dave Doeren, who was tasked with leading them back into the ACC Title fold after former coach Tom O’Brien was fired in 2012. NC State has improved under Doeren’s tenure, but they haven’t secured a marquee win in the era (in spite of coming so close to winning at Clemson last week). The Wolfpack haven’t necessarily been a force in the ACC, but they’ve not been terrible either.
