2017 NC State Wolfpack Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The Wolfpack come up with a great first performance with a win over an improved South Carolina to kick things off. There aren’t any issues with Marshall or Furman before pulling off the shocker at Florida State. Syracuse isn’t a problem, and with a national audience watching, State beats Louisville for a 6-0 start. The Pack won’t be good enough to roar through the schedule unbeaten, but if it can handle Clemson at home, and survive a brutal run of four road games in five dates before getting North Carolina at home, 9-3 is possible.

2017 NC State Wolfpack Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

The Wolfpack loses to South Carolina right away, and loses at Florida State and against Louisville for a 3-3 start. The struggles continue on the road in that rough second half with losses at Pitt and Notre Dame before losing to Clemson. The team will be too good to not go bowling, but if everything goes wrong, it might have to rally late – again – to get to 6-6 and close out strong to get that 13th game.
