The Duke Blue Devils look to avenge their first loss of the season when they take on the NC State Wolfpack in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Thursday night.

However, NC State has struggled since, and the Blue Devils appear to be learning how to play without Ryan Kelly. Now Duke must win to remain within striking distance of Miami, which sits atop the ACC standings.
Here are five keys to beating NC State in this ACC showdown.
