The fans at Heinz Field will be treated to a game between the NC State Wolfpack and the Pittsburgh Panthers when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA STATE (5-1, 3-0 ACC): Finley is completing 71 percent of his passes – second in the ACC and seventh in FBS – with 10 touchdowns against no interceptions and ranks third in ESPN’s QBR metric (84.4) behind Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma and Mason Rudolph of Oklahoma State. Samuels, classified as an H-back, has scored a touchdown in five of six games, has at least five catches in every game and is the only player in FBS with at least 15 career rushing touchdowns and 15 receiving touchdowns. Edge rusher Bradley Chubb leads all Power-5 conference defenders in tackles for loss with 14 and is tied for third in FBS with 6.5 sacks for a defense that yields 23.7 points and 387 yards per game – but only 90.7 yards on the ground.

ABOUT PITTSBURGH (2-4, 0-2): Quarterback Max Browne (997 yards, five TDs, two interceptions), who leads the ACC in completion percentage (71.1 percent), will not play this week after leaving the Syracuse game in the second half with an undisclosed injury. Sophomore Ben DiNucci, who has played in five games and started earlier this season against Georgia Tech, completed 6-of-10 passes for 55 yards against the Orange and will get the start. Safety Jordan Whitehead had nine tackles and a pass breakup on defense last week and scored on a 35-yard run while gaining 73 yards on seven carries to lead the ground attack.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wolfpack as 10½-point favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total is sitting at 54 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42

North Carolina State fifth-year coach Dave Doeren got his signature road win at Florida State earlier this season and added a matching home triumph last week against Louisville. Now the No. 20 Wolfpack seek their first six-game winning streak in 15 years when they visit struggling Pittsburgh on Saturday.

“I told our team it was coming, I told y’all it was coming. Some of you believed me, some of you didn’t,“ Doeren told reporters after the Wolfpack knocked off then-No. 17 Louisville 39-25 on Oct. 5. “You can just feel it right now in our locker room. They believe they’re the best team. And they’re playing hard and they’re playing together and they’re tough and it’s fun … a lot of fun.” Junior Ryan Finley threw for 367 yards, Nyheim Hines ran for 102 yards and two TDs and Jaylen Samuels had seven catches for 104 yards against the Cardinals as the Wolfpack won their fifth straight game – the longest win streak since the 2002 team started 9-0. The defense sacked reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson four times and returned an interception for a score that put the game away. Pittsburgh is in serious jeopardy of not qualifying for a bowl for the first year since 2007 after falling 27-24 at Syracuse last week, being outgained 500-358 while going only 3-of-13 on third down.

Pittsburgh was a 27-24 loser in its last match on the road against Orange. They earned a push of the +3-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 51 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for NC State, they were a 39-25 winner as they battled Cardinals at home. NC State covered in the match as a +3-point underdog, while 64 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
