Connecticut Huskies vs NC State Wolfpack Recap for September 24th, 2022, 7:30PM ET

Connecticut is playing NC State at the Carter-Finley Stadium stadium on Saturday, 9/24/2022 @ 7:30pm EST. NC State -39 was the opening favorite and line hasn't moved.

On Saturday night, UConn will try to play a more competitive game against No. 12 NC State. Huskies are 39-point underdogs in this game after consecutive blowout losses to Syracuse and No. 4 Michigan. Over the first three weeks of the season, NC State has looked excellent, including last week's 27-14 victory over Texas Tech.  

Connecticut Huskies +39 In its first game of the season, UConn easily covered the 24-point spread in a 31-20 loss to Utah State. In their second game, the Huskies beat Central Connecticut 28-3, but they have looked terrible ever since. Two weeks ago, they lost to Syracuse 48-14, and last week, they lost to Michigan 59-0. Running back Nate Carter sprained his shoulder in that game and will miss this game for UConn. To add depth to the running back position, head coach Jim Mora moved freshman Cam Edwards from defensive back to running back.

NC State Wolfpack -39 The Wolfpack have climbed to No. 12 in the polls thanks to their promising start this season. A gutsy road win at East Carolina was followed by a 55-3 victory over Charleston Southern at home. Last week, they beat Texas Tech 27-14, their best performance of the season so far. Next week, the team will face No. 5 Clemson in a huge road showdown. This season, NC State has relied primarily on its defense, ranking 86th in team offense.
