What you need to know about NC State

Behind a balanced, yet explosive, offensive attack and a stifling defense, NC State has climbed to No. 22 in the national rankings. The Wolfpack's signature win was a 27-21 double overtime upset victory over perennial ACC favorite and national title contender Clemson. 

Quarterback Devin Leary has been extremely efficient, throwing for 1,283 yards, 12 touchdowns, and only two interceptions. The two-headed running back monster of Zonovan Knight and Ricky Person Jr. gives the Wolfpack two dynamic options out of the backfield. Defensively, NC State has been stout against the run (92 yards allowed per game) and the pass (203.4 yards allowed per game).

What you need to know about Boston College

BC is coming off a 19-13 loss to the Clemson Tigers last week, its first defeat of the 2021 season. QB Dennis Grosel had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw two interceptions and lost one fumble. Grosel will be looking to get back on track this week against N.C. State.

The Eagles' will likely look to slow the game down with their rushing attack and rely on their stout defense at home against NC State.
