NC State adds football series with West Virginia

Posted July 23

N.C. State Logo

— North Carolina State University announced on Wednesday that it has added a future non-conference football home-and-home series with Big 12 opponent West Virginia.

In 2018, the Mountaineers will travel to Carter-Finley Stadium, while the Wolfpack will travel to Morgantown for a 2019 matchup.

N.C. State has faced West Virginia 10 times in program history, with the series tied at 5-5. The last meeting was in the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl, when quarterback Russell Wilson led the Wolfpack to a 23-7 win over the No. 22 Mountaineers. The squads also met in the 1972 Peach Bowl, which NC State won 49-13, and the 1975 Peach Bowl - a 13-10 WVU win.

The teams have not played on either's home field since 1979, when the Wolfpack enjoyed a 38-13 victory in Morgantown. N.C. State has won the last three meetings and four of the last five.

The series with the Mountaineers is the second major series added by the Wolfpack in recent weeks. N.C. State recently announced a home-and-home series with Mississippi State of the SEC for 2020 and 2021.

    NC State has always had the weakest schedule of all in the ACC over the years. TOB made this possible. They should play NSCU, WSSU, ECSU, and Chowan College. Best guess. Dave is weak; folks.

    And be replaced by Elon, or Idaho St.

    Just don't go to Morgantown( WVU ).
    "Obnoxious" is TOO nice a word.

    Just ask any Pirate fan about how you're treated in Morgantown.
