RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State's week off couldn't
have come at a more opportune time.
Now it's up to the Wolfpack to put that extra time to good use
for a change when they play host to No. 16 Florida State on
N.C. State has faced the Seminoles following the off week in
each of the previous two years and lost both times in close games.
The Wolfpack (5-2, 2-1 ACC) hope things are different this time,
mainly because their stinging loss two weeks ago at East Carolina
has been one of the few blips in an otherwise strong start.
Linebacker Audie Cole says he's "personally tired of hearing
about that (East Carolina) game" and insists the Wolfpack "wants
wants to go out and prove that we can still play."
