Wolfpack Football Kicks Off

NC State opens its football season tonight at home against Virginia Tech. It is an important game for the Wolfpack and head coach Chuck Amato, only one year removed from a dismal and unexpected 5-6 season.

The Wolfpack’s recruiting class of 2003 was one of the best in the country. This is the year when those players are supposed to mature into a great team, one that could contend for the ACC championship. Those dreams start with a good game against VT.

The high point of last season came when the Wolfpack beat VT on the road. It was an impressive win when it happened, but it looked even better at the end of year. VT’s only losses last year came against NC State and the only undefeated teams, Auburn and Southern Cal.
Coach Amato and his players need a similarly impressive performance tonight to get the season started on the right track.
