"This years schedule is both well rounded and challenging," said head coach Herb Sendek. "We face a number of strong programs with high national profiles from a variety of regions and conferences. We expect rugged tests from our non-conference schedule as many of our opponents return strong teams from squads competing in the postseason. As always, the Atlantic Coast Conference will be as competitive as any conference in America with another full slate of battles that have made it the top RPI conference each of the last two years."
The slate includes a pair of meetings with new ACC member Boston College. NC State will first travel to Boston College on January 10, then the Eagles will be in Raleigh for the final home game of the season on February 25. In the newly expanded ACC this year, NC State will host Miami, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Virginia, Maryland, Florida State, North Carolina and Boston College. The Wolfpack will make conference trips to North Carolina, Boston College, Duke, Clemson, Miami, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. The Pack's ACC slate begins Sunday, December 18 by hosting Miami.
NC State will play away from Raleigh in back-to-back non-conference games in late November as well. The Pack will travel to Indianapolis to take on Notre Dame in the Wooden Classic on November 26, then travel to Iowa for the ACC/Big 10 Challenge on November 30.
The annual Heritage game in Reynolds Coliseum game will be Saturday, December 10, against Appalachian State.
