DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State's struggles in the secondary are coming at just the right time for Duke.
The Blue Devils (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) own the top passing offense in the ACC behind four-year starting quarterback Thad Lewis. That could give them an advantage against the Wolfpack in Saturday's meeting in Raleigh.
The Wolfpack allowed Wake Forest's Riley Skinner to throw for 361 yards in last week's loss. That prompted coach Tom O'Brien on Monday to say he planned to overhaul his secondary with at least three new starters.
Still, Lewis says he expects the Wolfpack's defensive scheme will remain the same.
