Pack. Pirates. Dowdy-Ficklen. Saturday, High Noon

It’s a game Pirate fans crave to win and a game Wolfpack fans hope not to lose. That’s just the nature of a rivalry where one team wears the BCS shirt and the other is still sewing away hoping to make it fit one day. N.C. State leads East Carolina 16-10 all-time in a rivalry that [...]
