ONLY ONE WEEK UNTIL ACC FOOTBALL

Next Thursday night it all gets started when N.C. State tangles with South Carolina. As good luck would have it for O’Brien’s Wolfpack, the Cocks have given him some bulletin board material to help motivate the Raleigh boys to avenge last seasons loss.

Former Durham Riverside player Weslye Saunders opened his mouth and let this one out:

"I'm going to talk to Coach (Steve) Spurrier beforehand and see if he's OK if I get a 15-yard penalty. Because I'm gonna do some sort of extra celebration if I get a touchdown on the Wolfpack."

A junior, Saunders caught 16 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns last season.

So, they’ve got that goin’ for ‘em…How about some LINKS!
