- At 0-2, the Tar Heels are getting close to desperate for a win.

- NC State has a chance to win its first ACC opener under coach Tom O'Brien.
- Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams will be out for Saturday's game at BC, according to Kyle Tucker of the Virginian-Pilot, who spoke with David Wilson.
