Well, this was once called THE TEXTILE BOWL and I like to keep calling it that, but this year it could be called the "NC STATE SCARES ME BECAUSE THEY ARE CRAZIER THAN CHRIS MATTHEWS BOWL." Did you just hear a Dog Whistle? Anyway, NC State is a mess, a Jeckyl and Hyde team if there ever was one. First they go back to their old unies from the 60's/70's and then they mess around and beat Florida State which was then the #3 team in the country. Then they eek out a win against Maryland and then drop a game to UNC and are BLOWN OUT 33-6 by Virginia (yes, that Virginia, Virginia) only to turn around the next week and flip that blowout score on poor old Wake. What to expect? Well, you can expect State's QB Glennon to air it out...again...and again...and again. You did watch that FSU game, right? Clemson should take this one, AT HOME, but geez...these guys are scary crazy.
KEYS TO THE GAME: Hurt Glennon or shake him up and the game is over. Lights out. He's not all they have, but Tom "Don't Mention Russell Wilson To Me" O'Brien is desperate to prove he was right about a certain QB who transferred to Wisconsin, won their first Big Ten Championship in forever and is over mid-way through his first season as starting QB for the 6-4 Seattle Seahawks. How's that working out for you, Tommy boy? Regardless, if NC State's AD had any GD sense, this will be O'Brien's last season. Again, I think the Tigers take this one, but I dread that Fourth Quarter...arghhhh.
