Welcome to Saturday! Syracuse is in must-win mode for the rest of the season now, so that's fun. Your Orange (3-5) (1-3) take on the similarly struggling NC State Wolfpack (4-4) (0-4) at the Carrier Dome today at 3 p.m. ET. As kickoff draws closer, we'd like to start the day off on a positive note, watch College Gameday together, etc. In case you forgot, this game is going to be aired on ESPN 3 and RSNs (link below contains full list).
