What to Know

The NC State Wolfpack are staring down a pretty large 11-point disadvantage in the spread for Saturday's game. NC State and the North Carolina Tar Heels will face off in an ACC battle at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday at Carter-Finley Stadium. NC State staggers in eager to bring about an end to their five-game losing streak.

The Wolfpack were close but no cigar last week as they fell 28-26 to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. A silver lining for NC State was the play of RB Zonovan Knight, who rushed for 100 yards and one TD on 18 carries.

Meanwhile, when you finish with 328 more yards than your opponent like UNC did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They claimed a resounding 56-7 victory over the Mercer Bears. RB Michael Carter had a dynamite game for UNC; he rushed for 159 yards and three TDs on nine carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Carter has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season. Carter's sharp performance also set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.

North Carolina's win lifted them to 5-6 while NC State's loss dropped them down to 4-7. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Wolfpack are 19th worst in the nation in overall touchdowns, with only 27 on the season. The Tar Heels have experienced some offensive struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the contest with the eighth fewest rushing touchdowns in the nation, having accrued only nine on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
