Louisville seeks to limit miscues against Wolfpack

Louisville knows there’s no room for errors when it hosts N.C. State Saturday (3:30 p.m., Fox Sports Carolinas). That was hard-learned lesson in last week’s 23-17 loss at Clemson, when Louisville (5-2, 3-2 ACC) gave up touchdowns on a 72-yard punt return and an end-zone fumble. Penalties also doomed the Cardinals, who aim not to beat themselves against the Wolfpack (4-3, 0-3).

Petrino’s high-powered offense nowhere to be found

Bobby Petrino isn’t used to this. The first-year Louisville coach with a reputation for creating high-powered offense has had to watch the Cardinals (5-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) take small steps forward in his second stint with the program. The journey has been bumpy, as evidenced by five false start penalties in last week’s 23-17 loss at Clemson.

Murphy leads Boston College past N.C. State

Nothing could stop Boston College’s productive ground game. Not a muddy field, not a long delay and — once again — definitely not N.C. State. Tyler Murphy rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns and the Eagles beat N.C. State 30-14 on Saturday for the Wolfpack’s 11th straight Atlantic Coast Conference loss.

Ex-Gators face off in BC’s visit to N.C. State Saturday

Leaving Florida has worked out pretty well for both Jacoby Brissett and Tyler Murphy. The ex-Gators quarterbacks have led their new schools to big things and now they’re preparing to face off for the first time Saturday when North Carolina State (4-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) plays host to Boston College (3-2, 0-1).

Brissett ‘putting it all out there’ for N.C. State

N.C. State coach Dave Doeren waited a year to get Florida transfer Jacoby Brissett into his lineup. It didn’t take the quarterback nearly so long to completely change the Wolfpack’s offense.

Wolfpack's friendly confines have been unkind to FSU

Florida State has had plenty of trouble at N.C. State — especially when carrying a national ranking. The top-ranked Seminoles have lost their last two games in Raleigh heading into Saturday’s game, including one two years ago that was their last Atlantic Coast Conference loss.

N.C. State readies for visit from No. 1 Florida State

Coach Dave Doeren and his players couldn’t have hoped for a much better start to the season. They’ve already surpassed last year’s win total and have averaged 248.8 yards rushing, with three straight 200-yard rushing performances for the first time since 1994.
