Belk Bowl Drenching: Wolfpack vs Cowbells

Yes, I know Mississippi State’s mascot is the Bulldog.  Don’t care.

Those of you who will be in attendance, or anywhere in the Charlotte area really, get used to it.  And stock up on headache powders and ibuprofen.  You’ll need both.

The Wolfpack will go for win number eight today in what promises to be a very wet, and possibly lightning delayed affair.  Time will tell.

Game time is set for 3:30pm, TV is ESPN.

For NC State, this game offers up an opportunity to match last year’s win total, while also adding a victory over a respected program from the highly-touted SEC.

“It would be a big statement, but at the same time we played a lot of top-25 teams,” Rose said. “UNC was a top-25 team, Louisville before the season was top-25, and Clemson is the number one team in the country. Those are three of our losses. We’ve played some good football and we’ve played some really good teams. At the end of the day, the SEC is the SEC. They’re considered the premiere conference, so a win against one of their better teams would be good for us.”

Wednesday’s contest will be a bowl rematch between two schools who faced off against each other in the 1994 Peach Bowl, a game that was won by NC State, 28-24. The two programs have scheduled home-and-home matchups for the future, with Mississippi State visiting Raleigh in 2020 and the Wolfpack making a return trip to Starkville the next year.

This will mark NC State’s 29th postseason bowl appearance. The Wolfpack owns an all-time bowl record of 15-12-1, but has prevailed in seven of its last 10 bowl outings.

The last time the Pack was in the Belk, this happened….

State went on to defeat the Cards 31-24.

Go Pack!!!!

    Like ‘foose I see some program improvement. No where near enough yet but some improvement. I also see for the past season there were challenges like Shad being dismissed and the Dayes injury. I’m not for one second saying the Shad dismissal was a bad call (actually I think it was the right one) but to date we have not been deep enough in talent to really do the next man up like some programs can (Baylor anyone?). Yesterday the cowbells were the best team on the filed. Period. End of discussion. Damned impressive QB, they came out ready to go and were able to withstand any challenge the Wolfpack made. New assistants? Possibly but to me that is DD’s call. He will live or die with the staff he hires.

    I do think DD needs to reflect and asses then possibly adjust. That is the way forward.


    Richt just landed Manny Diaz as his DC. Not too shabby. Watch out for the Canes.


    You cannot take a foam rubber stick to a cowbell fight…
