It is hard to have a better debut than Philip Nelson did this past weekend.
He completed 28-of-32 passes for almost 400 yards. However, Nelson knows this weekend is huge for ECU and Pirate Nation. He knows the Pirates need to gather themselves and prep for a very talented Wolfpack squad.
"There was no hangover from Saturday," said Nelson. "We came out and it was all business."
Nelson also knows that this is huge in-state rivalry and that there are serious bragging rights at stake.
"It's definitely a game we want to play our best ball in," said Nelson.
The N.C. States defense will also pose a huge challenge for Nelson and the offense.
"They are a great defense," said Nelson. "Solid all around."
