N.C. State throwback uniforms coming for the Notre Dame game. The program is bringing back a classic look to celebrate 50 years at Carter-Finley Stadium on Saturday.
Carter-Finley Stadium opened on October 8, 1966. That day, the Wolfpack lost a 31-21 game to South Carolina. On Saturday, N.C. State hosts Notre Dame, marking the 50 year anniversary on the stadium's opening. To celebrate the occasion, State is breaking out a throwback uniform, featuring the 'diamond' logo that the program used from 1986-1999.
'Pack fans seem pretty happy about the return of the diamond logo.
N.C. State is 3-1 so far this season, but the team has not faced top competition yet. In Week 2, the Wolfpack lost to a tough ECU squad, but one that was handled by Virginia Tech later in the season. The team did hand in-state rival Wake Forest its first loss of the season last weekend.
Notre Dame is out to a 2-3 start, and have been in turmoil so far this season. This game is expected to be a close one; OddsShark has N.C. State as a 2.5-point favorite.
