One Reason Why Furman Will Win
For all of the problems Furman has had over the first two games, the offensive line has been okay.
It’s been strong in pass protection, and it’s done a solid job for a ground game that’s trying to overcome the mediocre passing attack.
The funky Paladin running game might be just enough to cross up the fantastic NC State defensive front that’s been fine so far, but hasn’t quite dominated as expected.
One Reason Why NC State Will Win
Furman doesn’t have any sort of a pass rush or the ability to get into the backfield. If you don’t get any pressure on NC State QB Ryan Finley, he’ll pick you apart.
The Wolfpack secondary might have had problems early on last week against Marshall, but NC State made up for it with a 341-yard, three score day from Finley and a passing attack that got it going when it had to.
The Paladins got bombed on by Elon last week in a 34-31 loss. Finley should be able to do whatever he wants.
What’s Going To Happen
NC State needs to get this thing over in a hurry.
Florida State has had a ton of rest and should come out roaring for the ACC opener next week in Tallahassee. This is the week when the Wolfpack has to crank up the defensive front to the level it’s supposed to be, and get everything in place – for a half.
Keep everyone healthy, and move on. That shouldn’t be a problem.
