William & Mary, the main topic of conversation was overwhelmingly focused
on the up coming game against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.
Tickets were being sold for 5 and 6 times there face value and thoughts of just
as many people in the parking lot tailgating as fans being in the game was a
What State fans didn't factor was Notre Dame (a preseason top 25 team at the
beginning of the year) would start out 2-3 and take the national spotlight
off this game which was given a noon kickoff on sat.
WHATS THE LINE, AND WHO'S GONNA WIN??
The Line NC State -2.5
Normally I would tell you to take Notre Dame and take the points, because on
a dry track, the Fighting Irish have too much talent at the skill positions and on the
offensive line for State to handle (they scored 55 at Syracuse last week on the
road). On the other hand, State has a solid running game with Matt Dayes
(437 yds rushing) to go along with QB Ryan Finley (1018 passing and 0 int)
to take advantage of poor field conditions and grind out a victory.
State has a great chance to pull off a huge signature win and give them some
momentum going into what could be called a murderers row schedule
including games against Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville.
Enjoy the Rain, I mean the Game everyone,
