The NC State Wolfpack are entering the 2009 college football season looking to become serious contenders in the Atlantic Division of the ACC.
They are coming off of a 6-7 season, in which they started slow winning only two of their first eight games but then they got healthy and went on four game winning streak.
They made it to the PapaJohns.com Bowl, their first bowl game since 2005. They would lose the bowl game to Rutgers after quarterback Russell Wilson went down with leg injury.
In the upcoming season the Pack are looking to go to a bowl game in consecutive seasons for the first time since the 2002 and 2003 seasons.
In order to do that they need to start the season off better then they did last year, starting with a win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.
