Louisville vS. NC State Live stream. Louisville Football: 3 bold predictions vs. NC State in Week 6, Louisville vs. NC State 2017: Viewing Info, Matchup to Watch
To keep their hopes of a spot in the ACC Championship Game alive, Louisville football will have to solve NC State this Thursday. The Cardinals can ill-afford to drop a second league divisional game and the Wolfpack need a win to remain in a tie atop the standings with Clemson. The contest will receive the bright lights of prime-time Thursday night, which should play into the hands of reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson just nicely. After suffering a 47-21 setback to the Tigers in Week 3, the Cards will need help if they hope to reach the championship game in December.
No. 24 NC State has a head of steam going in the form of a four-game winning streak and a 2-0 start in ACC play, the first time in 11 years the program has been able to accomplish that feat. Ranked for the first time in the Dave Doeren era, the Wolfpack has a chance to prove that it’s worthy of being ranked as it prepares for a primetime showdown against No. 17 Louisville Thursday night at 8 p.m.
Last year, Jackson and Louisville jumped all over the Wolfpack, claiming a convincing 54-13 victory just a week after NC State had pushed eventual national champion Clemson into overtime only to come up short. In that game, Jackson scored four times in the opening 30 minutes.
