NC State Plays Host To Struggling Virginia

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Stressed-out North Carolina State sure could use a breather. Coach Tom O'Brien doesn't expect one this week -- not even against last-place Virginia.

The Wolfpack (5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have played four straight games that have come down to the final minute.

When they face the struggling Cavaliers (2-6, 0-4) on Saturday, they hope they can put them away much earlier.

Yet they aren't expecting anything resembling a carefree afternoon against the only team winless in ACC play.

O'Brien says the Cavaliers are "not a 2-6 football team."

N.C. State is coming off a 43-35 loss to rival North Carolina. Virginia is trying to figure out how to snap its six-game losing streak in which three of the last four losses were decided by seven or fewer points.
