Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the NC State Wolfpack and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. It's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Furman Paladins as NC State lead 45-7. Furman is looking to build off of a win while the Wolfpack are hoping to get their season back on track after a loss.

What to Know

The Furman Paladins are staring down a pretty large 27.5-point disadvantage in the spread for Saturday's game. They are staying on the road Saturday to face off against the NC State Wolfpack at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 18 at Carter-Finley Stadium. Furman will be seeking to avenge the 49-16 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 16 of 2017.

The Paladins kept a clean sheet against the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles last week and took the contest 26 to nothing.

Meanwhile, NC State came up short against the Mississippi State Bulldogs last week, falling 24-10. QB Devin Leary had a pretty forgettable game, throwing one interception.

Furman's win lifted them to 2-0 while NC State's loss dropped them down to 1-1. We'll see if Furman can repeat their recent success or if NC State bounces back and reverse their fortune.
