NC State returns to action Saturday afternoon at home against Boston College. Here are our three biggest keys to the game for the Wolfpack.



1. WIN THE CHUNK-PLAY BATTLE

Boston College has been explosive offensively, and while they are making a change at quarterback, the Eagles remain dangerous.  Here is a comparison of NC State and Boston College in terms of long offensive plays from scrimmage.

YARDAGE NC STATE PLAYS ACC RANK BC PLAYS BC RANK
10+ Yards 103 3rd 95 7th
20+ Yards 23 10th 33 5th
30+ Yards 8 12th 19 2nd
40+ Yards 2 14th 9 3rd
50+ Yards 0 13th 5 4th

Boston College has done a great job of creating those explosive plays, and NC State is certainly aware of it.
