NC State Wolfpack at Notre Dame Fighting Irish College Football Odds

NC State Wolfpack at Notre Dame Fighting Irish College Football Odds”

"I loved the fact that he had come up through the ranks", Kelly said, "because it really is an indicator of your ability to teach and communicate and do more with less".

NC State vs. Notre Dame news:After just hangin' back and enjoying a nice relaxing Saturday on this off week, NC State moved up in both major polls.

Can Notre Dame force the Wolfpack to score 3 points instead of 7 points? Led by likely first-round pick Bradley Chubb, NC State's senior-laden defense has limited opponents to just 84.3 rushing yards per game (third lowest in the country) and 3.1 yards per rush (14th lowest). Rules and points were different back in the day, but Notre Dame put up 27 touchdowns in a game that only lasted 33 minutes.

NC State has something to prove Saturday afternoon.

. He also is now second in the FBS with 2.0 tackles for loss per contest.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Notre Dame is favored at home in this game, as the Fighting Irish are getting odds of -6.5 points against the Wolfpack. But the Tigers' defense has held three teams below 100 yards this season and is 13th in the nation against the run (107.9 yards per game).

Finley and the Wolfpack have won six straight since a 35-28 loss to SC in the season opener.

"A great head-to-head heavyweight battle right there", N.C. State Coach Dave Doeren said. It has not won such a matchup since 1967 versus Houston. Behind Georgia, North Carolina State is scoring the most points of any team that Notre Dame faced to date. The other three were Louisville (31-28 in 2014), Virginia Tech in 2016 (34-31) and Georgia this September 9 (20-19), all of which came down to the closing minutes.

Where: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Ind. The Wolfpack are just 3-4 against the spread this season, but 2-0 ATS on the road. Interestingly, Notre Dame's next two opponents, Wake Forest (Nov. 4) and at Miami (Nov. 11), are tied for second with only four apiece. But before that becomes a real conversation, the 6-1 Irish need to sweep the rest of the schedule, which includes three ranked teams. It's the first trip for State to South Bend after beating the Irish twice, 10-3 in tropical-storm conditions last season at home, and 28-6 in the 2003 TaxSlayer Bowl. Tech needs to win to give themselves a fighting chance in the ACC Coastal with games left against Virginia, Virginia Tech and Duke and the Tigers would face a serious uphill fight if it fell two games behind N.C. State in the Atlantic.

Wolfpack quarterback Ryan Finley hasn't thrown an interception in 313 consecutive passes dating to last season, the longest active streak in the country. The NCAA record is 379, which also was set by an NC State quarterback, Russell Wilson in 2008-09. Georgia, which stuffs the run, is the only team to beat Notre Dame this year.
