Mountaineer GameDay airs at 10 a.m. ET on your local Nexstar affiliates and 11 a.m. ET on AT&T SportsNet (check your local listings).
The Mountaineers (1-1) are looking for redemption after their lop-sided loss to Missouri. They have struggled to run the ball and are averaging just 32 yards per game on the ground so far, a number they hope to bring up significantly this week. In order to do that, they will need to puncture the stout NC State defense, which led by Tony Gibson, hasn’t let up a single offensive touchdown all year.
On the other side of the ball, the Mountaineers are tasked with slowing the second-best offense so far in the ACC. In two games, the Wolf Pack have gained 1045 yards of total offense in a balanced attack that averages 37.5 points per game.
Oddsshark.com currently has the Wolf Pack as 6.5-point favorites over the Mountaineers.
