Refreshed Wahoos Ready for Wolfpack

Posted: Updated:

After the open date last week, the Virginia football team will be back in action Saturday, as they travel to face NC State.

The Wolfpack is quarterbacked by Virginia native Mike Glennon, who is the younger brother of former Hokie quarterback Sean Glennon.

NC State has the #2 ranked passing offense in the ACC.

The Wolfpack has a record of 2-2 in the ACC, and is still alive for the Atlantic Division title, thanks in part to Glennon.

Virginia head coach Mike London says, "There's a lot of things that he has going on for him, being an experienced, 5th year senior. It's evident, when you watch him play, he has the experience of a 5th year guy, and that system has done him well, so he's definitely a major concern for us."

NC State head coach Tom O'Brien expects to see a hungry UVA football team in Raleigh on SAturday.

"We don't take anybody soft, and we don't care what anybody's perception is," says O'Brien. "We have to deal with the reality that Virginia is a talented football team. Things haven't gone their way. They've got an open week, they can solve a lot of problems. They, just as we do, need a win."

Virginia will play NC State Saturday at 12:30 pm in Raleigh.
