It's been a rough start to the season for the Florida State Seminoles. They lost their star quarterback in the opening game against the Alabama Crimson Tide while losing that contest 24-7. Now they'll begin to play within their conference against ACC rivals North Carolina State. The Wolfpack have opened their season 2-1 and will also be getting their first game in conference play. Here's the latest Nc State vs. FSU preview with college football game odds, start time, TV channel, and live streaming options.

Game preview

After losing their first game of the season to Alabama, Florida State was unable to play in their next two matchups due to the severe weather of the hurricane.

That meant a canceled game against Louisiana Monroe and a postponed game against No. 17 Miami. Now they finally get a home game as they host the Wolfpack on Saturday. Deondre Francois had 210 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions, before leaving the game with an injury. Freshman QB James Blackman will take over as the starter in the latest contest.

For the NC State Wolfpack, they arrive to this game at 2-1 after last week's loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks. Deebo Samuel had three touchdowns for SC to lead the way in a 35-28 win. This was despite a stellar day from QB Ryan Finley for the Wolfpack. He threw for 415 yards and two touchdowns on a 45-for-64 passing day. Now he'll try to lead his team to a big upset against the Seminoles.

The Florida State Seminoles are large favorites at home for this matchup.
