NC State last squared off with Appalachian State in Raleigh in 2006, which resulted in a 23-10 Wolfpack victory. The Wolfpack lead the overall series over the Mountaineers, 6-0, which dates back to their first meeting in 1932. All six games were played in Raleigh.

Happy and congratulations to App State for scheduling a Home and Home like you are finishing with North Carolina and did with Wake Forest. NC State AD, what are you thinking, those Mountaineers are good and horrible things happen if you lose to a group of 5 team and not much good happens. You should have scheduled Vandy or Kansas.

Credit to NC State for going to a Group of 5 school. They have many such trips scheduled in the future besides some attractive Power 5 matchups and Vandy. Hear discussion of how it is hard for Group of 5 schools to get a Power 5 to come to their place and often have to do 2 for 1 setups. Don’t criticize the Power 5 for being willing to schedule this.

Ohio State needs to have a home-and-home with App State. Michigan’s already played them twice (and we all know how the first time went).
