At NC State, one pivotal football game can make or break a Wolfpack coach

NC State football coach Dave Doeren enters his fifth season with a 25-26 record that includes a 9-23 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference play. The season-opener against South Carolina in Charlotte carries all the earmarks of a game that could steer NC State’s season and the Wolfpack program in one direction or the other, depending on the result.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Sports Illustrated calls NC State a potential contender.

With so many integral parts back from a 7-6 team, and one that outplayed Clemson (the national champion) and Florida State (a 10-win team), it’s easy to understand why national media outlets such as Sports Illustrated are naturally curious about N.C. State’s potential this season. The perplexing part of anyone predicting a potential playoff run for the Wolfpack is it ignores the most important factor – the schedule.

Here’s the Battle 4 Atlantis basketball tournament bracket — and who NC State will play

The meat of NC State’s nonconference basketball schedule will take place in the “Battle 4 Atlantis” tournament in the Bahamas during the week of Thanksgiving. The Wolfpack will open the eight-team tournament with Arizona, likely a preseason top 5 team, on Nov. 22, 2017. The only other “Power 5” conference opponent set on the Wolfpack’s schedule is Penn State (Nov. 29 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge).
