NC State hosts Chippewas in key bounce-back game
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren has a score to settle with Central Michigan.
The Chippewas are the only Mid-American Conference to beat him during his two-year run at Northern Illinois.
They visit N.C. State on Saturday in an important bounce-back game for the Wolfpack (2-1).
They’re coming off a tough loss to No. 3 Clemson in which they never recovered from having the go-ahead touchdown taken off the board due to an official’s call.
Doeren says he doesn’t care “who we are playing — it is game on.”
Central Michigan (1-3) has lost all three games against Bowl Subdivision schools by at least 10 points apiece, and doesn’t rank better than 57th in any of the major stat categories on either side of the ball.
