NC State to Face West Virginia in Champs Bowl

NC State has been selected to play in the Champs Sports Bowl and will face West Virginia in Orlando, Fl on Dec 28 at 6:30 p.m.

NC State has been selected to play in the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec 28 at 6:30 p.m. The Wolfpack will face West Virginia.

The Pack finished their season at 8-4 and boasted Thursday night wins over Cincinnati and Florida State as well as road wins over Georgia Tech and Central Florida. State finished the season by winning two of it's last three games but suffered a disappointing loss to Maryland that would have given the Pack the Atlantic Division title and a spot in the ACC championship game.

West Virginia ended the regular season at 9-3 and were one of the Big East's hottest teams, finishing the year on a four game winning streak including road wins at Pittsburgh and Louisville.

The Mountaineers and Wolfpack should be an interesting match up. NC State will enter the game with the nation's 19th best passing attack while the Mountaineers will counter with the nation's third best defense.

NC State and West Virginia last met in 1979 with the Pack beating the Mountaineers 38-14 in Morgantown.
