Louisville/Jefferson County, Kentucky 2021-11-17 19:40:21 –

North Carolina’s 20th State is undefeated in ACC play and is only 4 points away from being in Bath in the title game.

After missing the opportunity to tighten ACC’s Atlantic Division, Wolfpack is about to recover from a severe defeat to Wake Forest, the division leader who hosts ACC Atlantic Division mate Syracuse, on Saturday afternoon.

North Carolina State University (7-3, 4-2 ACC) will start this week in third place behind undefeated Wake Forest and second-placed Clemson. Wolfpack was 6-1 in seven games after splitting the first two games, but was unable to recover from 10 points in the final 1:47 and lost to Wake Forest 45-42 on Saturday.

After last week’s defeat, North Carolina State University could have an external opportunity for a division title. If Wolfpack defeats Syracuse and North Carolina, and Wake Forest loses to Clemson and Boston College, they can win the division.

“Obviously, it’s out of our control to win the Atlantic Ocean now. Some things will have to be in our favor,” said Wolfpack coach Dave Doalen. “We have only two controls:”

Quarterback Devin Leary completed 37 out of 59 passes at 408 yards and threw four touchdowns, while North Carolina State University had three turnovers and 14 penalties. I want to rebound from. Wolfpack also wants to allow Wake Forest to convert 10 of 19 and after it can’t convert 11 of 14, it will give better third-down results in both defense and attack.

“We have a lot to play and it starts with this game with Syracuse,” said Doalen. “They are very physical teams and very good defensive soccer teams. They are in the top 20 in some categories (nationwide) and in the top 3 in some leagues.”

Syracuse (5-5, 2-4) of the team ranked in the top 3 in ACC in any category and in the top 20 in any category nationwide when they absorbed the 41-3 defeat in Louisville after posting on Saturday. It didn’t look like. Consecutive victories over Virginia Tech and Boston University.

Sean Tucker won the national rush title on Saturday, 111 yards behind Kenneth Walker III at Michigan State University. Against the Cardinals, he finished with a total of 95 yards, the second lowest in the season, failing to win eight consecutive 100-yard games.

“I think the biggest thing is that we have to go back to Syracuse football,” Orange coach Dino Barbers said at a weekly press conference on Monday. “It’s not what we played on Saturday. It doesn’t show what we’re trying to express. We were very flat. And we weren’t physical. And they. That really bothers me.

Tucker led the ACC in the 1,362 lashing yard and achieved 24 lashing touchdowns with the quarterback Garrett Schroeder. Syracuse leads the ACC with 236.7 lashing yards and 26 lashing touchdowns per game.

With a strong rush attack, Syracuse won one bowl qualification for the first time since 2018. To reach 6-6, Orange must win against North Carolina State University or Pittsburgh.

“We understand that it will be a difficult place to play,” Bubbers said. “We’ve been there before. I understand that, but I have the opportunity to bring this football team back and see if we can change the story from what happened last week. I am looking forward to it.”
