North Carolina State Wolfpack College Football Betting

The NC State Wolfpack overcame a slow start and instability at quarterback to post a 9-3 season of triumph. The Wolfpack beat rivals Clemson, Miami, and North Carolina in a 5-0 run to end the 2023 campaign. Head coach Dave Doeren has not been the most popular man in Raleigh since 2013, but this will go down as the season in which he won over the faithful. He also surpassed Earle Edwards for the most career wins at NC State. NC State is looking to finish strong against the Kansas State Wildcats in the Pop-Tarts Bowl.

The NC State Wolfpack has 11 conference championships. They have never won a national championship. Yet, Wolfpack fans continue to have an overinflated sense of what the program should be, compared to its history. Especially when you consider that the last NC State conference championship was in 1979. The only season the Wolfpack finished ranked top-10 was in 1974 under Lou Holtz.
