Marshall-N.C. State game prediction

Hello Herd fans!

It’s off to Raleigh this weekend, and I’m afraid the good feeling over beating Miami (Ohio) will abate.

This won’t be overanalyzed. N.C. State isn’t Alabama, but should enjoy an advantage of some degree in every category, except maybe special teams. And intangibles fall the Wolfpack’s way — these guys should be mad as hell and really dialed in after booting one last week to an inferior South Carolina team.

It should still be interesting to see which Herd players rise to the challenge. A good start, as outlined in my game story for Saturday morning, could make this more competitive than the betting line (24) indicates.

But for those who are so inclined, stay away from that line and bet something else …
