Tonight NC State plays at Cincinnati. I've always been impressed by Bearcats QB Zach Collaros who has 7 TD's to 0 interceptions so far this season. However, if any team is prepared to play against a guy like Collaros - its NC State's defense who has been practicing the past few years against Russell Wilson. Yes the Wolfpack D is banged up but I think NC State will prove to be the better team - or at least good enough to keep it close.
Being a national TV game on ESPN should have the crowd nice and rowdy for Cincinnati but not enough to make up for 7.5 points. My pick is NC State and the 7.5 points.
Record so far this season - 2&2 (-$20)
