  • The Wolfpack wants to be the third Triangle team to beat Georgia Tech this season.

Today is a very big day for N.C. State football.

And it's very important for Duke, while it's still meaningful for N.C. Central.

UNC has the day off before its uphill stretch run.

The Wolfpack (5-4, 1-4 ACC) picked up its first conference win for second-year coach Dave Doeren last week in a squeaker over Syracuse. And if State can become the third Triangle team to beat No. 24 Georgia Tech (7-2, 4-2) today at 12:30 (WRAL) at Carter-Finley Stadium, the Wolfpack is going bowling!

NCCU (4-5, 3-2 MEAC), which is still looking for a winning season, plays its annual homecoming game against Hampton (2-7, 1-4) at 2 p.m. at O'Kelly-Riddick Stadium.

And the No. 22 Blue Devils (7-1, 3-1 ACC) travel to the Carrier Dome to take on Syracuse (1-4, 3-6) at 12:30 (Fox Sports Carolinas) and continue their quest for a second straight Coastal Division crown.
