    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – All things considered, it’s not a bad non-conference slate as long as the Wolfpack don’t blow it at East Carolina. William & Mary and Old Dominion aren’t bad, and at least the Notre Dame game is at home.

    – While the ECU game is on the road, State doesn’t leave North Carolina until the middle of October. However, that first game out of the state is at Clemson.

    – There isn’t a bad run of road games, but the Pack have to go away for back-to-back games against Clemson and Louisville – that’s it, though. Two of the final three games are away.

    – Florida State is at home and Clemson is on the road. The bad break, though, is in interdivision play having to face Miami and North Carolina from the Coastal.

    – WATCH OUT FOR … Boston College. It’s a home game, but it’ll be against a nasty defense in a possible letdown after facing Clemson and Louisville on the road and with Florida State up next.
