UNC vs NC State Preview

Both of these teams enter this week coming off of tough losses last week. NC State was handled on the road at Louisville 25-10, while UNC was upset at home by Georgia Tech 21-17.

For both teams besides bragging rights, the only thing that’s really on the line in this one is possibly improving the bowl game they get selected for. UNC already knows they’ll be playing Clemson in Charlotte next week for the ACC Championship.

For NC State the problems have come from injuries at quarterback after started Devin Leary and freshman MJ Morris have both gone down with injuries, the Pack has had five different quarterbacks take snaps this season. Morris has not been ruled out for this game so it’s possible he could play.

Beyond the questions at quarterback, Thayer Thomas has been the team’s most consistent weapon this season with 51 receptions for 586 yards and four touchdowns. Jordan Houston has been solid at running back with 500 yards rushing on the season.

If NC State wants to stay in this game they’ll need a big performance out of their defense. The unit has been led by linebacker Drake Thomas with 80 tackles and 5.5 sacks this season. The secondary has also intercepted 16 passes with Aydan White leading the way with four.

For UNC Drake Maye has led a high-powered offense with 3,614 yards along with 34 touchdown passes and just four interceptions. Maye has been the team’s top rusher with 597 yards and five touchdowns.

The receiver group is led by Josh Downs with 77 catches for 878 yards and 11 touchdowns. Antoine Green has been a strong number-two option with 30 receptions for 678 yards and six touchdowns.

The Tar Heels’ defense though has struggled at times this season. As a team, they recorded just 15 sacks and have only taken the ball away 12 times.

The question in this game though will be can NC State’s offense, with injury questions at quarterback, take advantage of the defense. If not then the Wolfpack could have a hard time keeping up with UNC. There will be a ton of pressure on the NC State defense to try and get stops against Maye and company
