Injuries Threatening To Derail NC State's Season

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- It's almost October, and North Carolina State still hasn't beaten a team from the Bowl Subdivision.

The Wolfpack (2-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) are in danger of being eliminated from bowl consideration well before Halloween.

They've taken a clear step backwards following their breakthrough 2010 in which they won nine games and claimed a victory in the Champs Sports Bowl.

Coach Tom O'Brien said Monday that "we're not where we thought we would be or could be," and pointed to an ever-growing list of injuries -- particularly on the defensive line -- as the prime culprit.

N.C. State will start its third different group of defensive linemen this week against No. 21 Georgia Tech and is down to two healthy defensive tackles.
