Ehh. I think the hype meter is already fairly high. Beating a team that we’re double digits favorites against probably wouldn’t change a whole lot. If we win like 38-0 then that might change things.

* Where does BC stand out?

2022 ACC ATLANTIC PREVIEW IS UP.

"How does NC State live up to hype? Dave Doeren's Wolfpack have become a preseason darling. Mark Schlabach ranked them eighth in his updated Way-Too-Early top 25 (Clemson is 12th), and it's not hard to see why. They fielded a top-15 defense in 2021 -- even while it got hit hard by injury -- and incumbent quarterback Devin Leary threw for 3,433 yards and an eye-popping 35 touchdowns to five interceptions. There's turnover in the skill corps, but the defense both returns 13 of the 15 players with 250-plus snaps last year and brings back three potential starters from injury. NC State has somehow never finished in the AP top 10; it's quite conceivable that 2022 is the year.

If it's not the year, however, it probably will be the offense's fault. For all of Leary's hype, he still ranked only 30th in Total QBR -- good but not elite -- and the Wolfpack's nibbling offense ranked only 80th in passing success rate. The Pack found themselves in too many third-and-longs, and while they bailed themselves out with big plays and strong red zone execution, they still ranked only 39th in offensive SP+. The run game was inefficient with All-American tackle Ikem Ekwonu and backs Zonovan Knight and Ricky Person Jr., and all three of them are gone, as is the biggest receiving threat, Emeka Emezie. Leary still has receivers Thayer Thomas and Devin Carter at his disposal, but the Pack could again be one-dimensional, and only Carter has proven explosiveness.

The Pack's defense constantly pushed teams backward in 2021 and boasted some of the surest tackling in the country despite a season-long injury for star linebacker Payton Wilson. NC State forced opponents behind schedule, then dominated with consistent pressure (eighth in pressure rate) and an elite secondary that returns intact and returns Cecil Powell, a starting cornerback in 2020. This is a huge opportunity for State in 2022. Let's see if the offense can hold up its end of the bargain."
