State Football Adds Series with West Virginia

This is the exact type of series State fans have wanted. Now, if we could just get the ACC/SEC +1 agreement to work out.

WRAL:

North Carolina State University announced on Wednesday that it has added a future non-conference football home-and-home series with Big 12 opponent West Virginia.

In 2018, the Mountaineers will travel to Carter-Finley Stadium, while the Wolfpack will travel to Morgantown for a 2019 matchup.

N.C. State has faced West Virginia 10 times in program history, with the series tied at 5-5. The last meeting was in the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl, when quarterback Russell Wilson led the Wolfpack to a 23-7 win over the No. 22 Mountaineers. The squads also met in the 1972 Peach Bowl, which NC State won 49-13, and the 1975 Peach Bowl – a 13-10 WVU win.

The teams have not played on either’s home field since 1979, when the Wolfpack enjoyed a 38-13 victory in Morgantown. N.C. State has won the last three meetings and four of the last five.

So along with adding a series with Mississippi State in 2020-21 (here), there seems to be a strategy to improving the non-conference scheduling.

It seems like it’s a long way off, but keep in mind the upcoming season will already be the fourth since Russell Wilson was playing here.

Obviously, as we all too well know with our recent cancelled-series with Oklahoma State and LSU, things can change. But as of today, we’ll have Notre Dame at home in 2016 and West Virginia home in 2018, with visits to South Bend in 2017 and Morgantown in 2019.

Poor WVWolf.

    This is indeed the type of interesting series I wanted to see, much like Mississippi State.

    You can play a reasonable interesting schedule without “playing Alabama and Oklahoma every week” like the cupcake apologists exaggerate about.

    Yep. Further impetus to make it a 1/2 dozen more years.

    They couldn’t have picked 2 schools with deeper personal history than MSU & WVU. Hey, bring back Penn St. and I’ll really have the Hot Tub Time Machine crankin’!

    ^NCS v. PSU was some serious sh&t back in the day…
    on a lot of different levels…

    It may surprise some that perhaps the biggest back story was the “rivalry” between the two faculties…

    What happened on the field was definitely D1-TopTwenty stuff… just ask Mr. Dog….

    Cannot agree more with this being the type of series we should be scheduling. I understand needing 3 home OOC games and 1 away OOC game. So get it so that we have 2 decent opponents each year, 1 home and 1 away. Then play your low-major team and your FCS school and I’ll be perfectly content with the schedule.

    Glad to see these two games on the distant horizon. Hopefully by then we will be ready to go win both games.

    I hope that both programs are back on the way up as life is much more interesting, except for Morganton couches, when both teams are winning consistently.

    No matter what happens I’ll have bragging rights somewhere…

    I have never been more conflicted watching a football game than that State/WVU bowl game a few years ago. Now I get to go through that 2 more times in football plus basketball? Clearly Debbie & Oliver Luck didn’t consult me first.
