CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State still has an eye on the Atlantic Coast Conference championship, and the Wolfpack travels to North Carolina with hopes of maintaining their view.
The Wolfpack (7-3, 4-2 ACC) can win the league's Atlantic Division by beating the Tar Heels (6-4, 3-3) and winning next weekend at Maryland. In addition, N.C. State can improve to 4-0 under Tom O'Brien against the Tar Heels under Butch Davis.
N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson has played well in his two games against the Tar Heels, throwing six touchdown passes with no interceptions. He's also completed better than 67 percent of his passes.
The Tar Heels are coming off a home loss to Virginia Tech that knocked them out of the Coastal Division title chase.
