Tom O'Brien's squad will face defending Big South champion Liberty, undefeated South Alabama, Cincinnati and Central Michigan in out-of-conference play. The game at Cincinnati on Sept. 22 will be a Thursday night ESPN broadcast.
"Once again, we face a challenging schedule," said O'Brien. "Nothing is ever easy when you're playing in the ACC. We are looking forward to the start of spring practice on March 17 and the beginning of our preparation for another exciting year of Wolfpack football."
Tickets are now on sale for all Wolfpack Club members (online only at www.gopack.com/renewtix). Paper applications will be mailed in mid-March and May 15 is the priority deadline for ticket orders.
The Kay Yow Spring Game will be held on April 16, at 1 p.m.
