Yesterday was the “easy” six games; today is the “hard” six games.
Based on last season’s record alone, the Eagles will most likely be underdogs in almost all of these games, aside from the later-season contests in which perhaps things have changed.
2012 Record: 7-6
TOB is out and Dave Doeren is in. A number of the college football talking heads actually like NC State a tiny bit this year, and they’ve gotten their share of wins against BC in recent years. Nevertheless, this game is at home, where the Eagles tend to play well against the Wolfpack (at least under TOB they did).
This is a late-season game, so there’s no telling who will be favored, but we’ll find out in good time. I believe NC State will be an okay team this year, but they’re not in the class of some of the teams above it on the list.
