Fresh off a likely pasting by Clemson on national television this coming Saturday, the Syracuse Orange will head down to Raleigh, N.C. to face the NC State Wolfpack at 12:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network, which you'll need to check your local listings for (and we'll also be sure to post here on game week).
Assuming the Orange are 3-7 going into that one, they'll probably square off with a 6-4 Wolfpack team that's already bowl-bound. NC State faces Florida State this coming Saturday, and you can assume the 'Noles are raring to right the ship after dropping a big game to Clemson just last weekend.
Also, if it makes you feel better about what ABC/ESPN2 is forcing people to watch when we face the Tigers on Saturday, they're doing the same thing to Wake Forest the following week.
I'll be down in Raleigh for this one, because I can't help but punish myself in person (watching from afar just didn't capture the pain properly!). Give me a shout if you'll be there as well and we can somberly say hello to one another while likely watching a Zack Mahoney option offense trot out there against State.
