ACC Weekly Feature - Raleigh, NC - Wolfpack in the House!

   School: North Carolina State University
Town: Raleigh, NC - Part of Tobacco Road
Head Coach: Tom O'Brien
Football Stadium: Carter-Finley

 Mascot: Mr. and Mrs. Wuf
 Colors: Red, White, Black
Traditions: "and it's a Wolfpack.....FIRST DOWN!", "WOLF....PACK....", Alma Mater after games, Free Expression Tunnel on main campus, BBQ and Tailgating, Walk of Champions before football games, and the Bell Tower is lit up with red lights for a variety of special occasions, including athletic victories.

Famous Alumni: Jimmy V, Bill Cowher, Philip Rivers, Torry Holt, Jerricho Cotchery, Mario Williams, Zac Galifianakis (ok, so maybe he didn't exactly graduate and has nothing to do with football, but he's cool..)
Biggest Rival: UNC Tarheels (Go to He!! Carolina!)
Where to Stop for Food: The tailgaters that don't have double pig cookers attached to the back of their trucks go to Bojangles.  BBQ is a huge part of tailgating at NC State, our football stadium and facilities were built from hog money.
Where to Watch the Game if You Don't Have a Ticket: RV Lot, The Brickhouse on Hillsborough Street, Tobacco Road on Glenwood
Where to Party After A Win: Glenwood South, Fayetteville Street

 We are a school that loves our football program.  Good or bad we tailgate and support our team the same.  I am proud to have gone to school at such a great place and God willing, will be rocking NC State sweaters when I'm 80! 


Starting this coming Monday, we'll be doing a weekly link-up so that everyone can share their tailgating and gameday pictures from the week before.  Get excited!!
