What to Know

An ACC battle is on tap between Syracuse and NC State at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday at Carter-Finley Stadium. If the contest is anything like the 51-41 finish from the last time they met, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

Syracuse ran circles around Holy Cross two weeks ago, and the extra yardage (429 yards vs. 115 yards) paid off. The Orange put a hurting on Holy Cross to the tune of 41-3. QB Tommy DeVito was slinging it as he passed for 269 yards and four TDs on 31 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was DeVito's 70-yard TD bomb to TE Luke Benson in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, NC State and Florida State couldn't quite live up to the 62.5-point over/under that the experts had forecasted. NC State lost to Florida State by a decisive 31-13 margin. The Wolfpack were given a dose of their own medicine in this game as Florida State apparently hadn't forgotten their defeat the last time these teams played, back in November of last year.

Syracuse's victory lifted them to 3-2 while NC State's loss dropped them down to 3-2. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Wolfpack come into the game boasting the sixth fewest rushing yards allowed per game in the league at 71.8.
